Brian Kendrick vs. Tony Nese (Second Round Match)
The final match of the evening is a battle between two competitors who are willing to do anything to stay in the tournament.
Tony Nese believes he should have been in WWE a long time ago. The self-proclaimed “Premier Athlete” isn’t wasting any time fawning over the opportunity to take part in the CWC, because he knows the tournament is his for the taking. Nese can fly with the best in the field, but also possesses the power of a heavyweight and can muscle around his opposition with ease. He showed his hybrid style off in the First Round, putting Anthony Bennett down for the three-count with a picture-perfect 450 Splash.
Standing across the ring from Nese is a man with a plan, Brian Kendrick. The “Post-Apocalyptic Scavenger” was a sentimental favorite after CWC: Bracketology, when Kendrick revealed that he saw the Classic as his last shot at personal redemption, after letting his previous chance at WWE glory slip through his fingers. However, feelings toward Kendrick changed in the First Round, when he revealed just how far he was willing to go to achieve that goal. Kendrick wrestled ruthlessly against Mexico’s Raul Mendoza, bending the rules and using trickery to slide into the Second Round.
Will Tony Nese’s hybrid of aerial ability and raw power be the key to victory, or will Kendrick’s cruel and unusual style keep him in the CWC? Find out tonight at 9/8 C, only on WWE Network!
