WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann def. Ariya Daivari
Generally speaking, it’s pretty good to be Rich Swann, but that might change tomorrow night. The WWE Cruiserweight Champion rebounded from his tag-team loss on 205 Live by defeating Ariya Daivari in singles action on Raw, and when pressed to address the elephant in the room — Neville’s challenge from earlier in the evening — Swann accepted with relish. The Man That Gravity Forgot quickly attacked from behind and threw Swann back-first into the apron before hitting the Red Arrow on the champion’s back, setting the stage for a blockbuster showdown on tomorrow’s 205 Live.
It may not be the only one, either. When asked for his own thoughts on the loss backstage, Daivari was confronted by Jack Gallagher in full three-piece regalia, and The Extraordinary Gentleman was somewhat miffed at Daivari calling him a “scoundrel.” So, when Daivari refused to retract his remarks, Gallagher did what any gentleman would do in this situation: slapped Daivari across the face with a glove and challenged him to a duel.
