HoHo Lun def. Ariya Daivari (First Round Match)
Ariya Daivari, brother of WWE Alumni Daivari, was supremely confident heading into the Cruiserweight Classic. Not only did he believe that he was the best wrestler in the tournament, but he showed no respect for his opponent, HoHo Lun, refusing to shake the Hong Kong, China native’s hand before the start of their match.
Daivari quickly learned that Lun was not to be underestimated, as the plucky competitor stunned him with a big dropkick. The Iranian soon realized that he would need to get ruthless to if he wanted to advance, grabbing Lun by the hair and slamming him to the canvas. Daivari continued the disrespect and repeatedly slapped Lun in the face. That only fueled Lun, who battled back to his feet and staggered Daivari. After the Iranian missed on a frog splash, connected with a German Suplex to win the match and advance to the CWC’s round of 16.
