Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa def. Cedric Alexander & Noam Dar
Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa showed that teamwork has its benefits during the Cruiserweight Classic Live Finale, defeating fellow CWC competitors Cedric Alexander & Noam Dar in raucous tag team action.
The makeshift tandem looked to be in control – the speedy Alexander used his agility to keep the hard-hitting Ciampa off-balance, while Dar flustered Johnny Wrestling with his mat wrestling skill. Once the DIY duo regrouped, though, Gargano & Ciampa firmly demonstrated that being on the same page pays off.
The tag team battle was a demolition derby-style affair, with all four competitors laying in brutal strikes. Dar eventually went after the injured knee of Gargano, forcing Johnny Wrestling to retreat and tag in Ciampa. Alexander nearly won the match with a brainbuster and kick, but Ciampa managed to kick out. The ensuing melee ended once Dar found himself alone in the ring with Gargano & Ciampa. It was at that point the duo clobbered the Scot with their patented running knee/superkick combo to pick up the victory.
