Rich Swann def. Lince Dorado (Second Round Match)
ORLANDO, Fla. — The action was hot and heavy this week, as the Second Round of the inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Classic came to a close. The final three spots in the Quarterfinals were up for grabs in three matches, the first of which featured incredible high-flyers Lince Dorado and Rich Swann.
The two popular competitors wasted no time in going right after each other, engaging in an exchange that showed off their speed, agility and acrobatic skill. Though neither man was able to get the upper hand, Full Sail University was amazed by their incredible ability.
Following a brief dance break, Dorado gained an advantage and took flight, crashing onto Swann at ringside after a daredevil dive. The mood of the bout turned serious as both men, realizing what was at stake in this match, took to trading blows. Dorado had his opponent well-scouted, as he was able to counter Swann’s Standing 450 Splash and plant him with a reverse hurricanrana.
The luchador attempted the Shooting Star Splash that had gotten him this far in the competition, but he crashed and burned as Swann rolled out of the way, showing he had done his homework, too. Swann capitalized, scaling the ropes and executing a breathtaking Phoenix Splash for the victory and a spot in the Quarterfinals!
