Tony Nese def. Mustafa Ali
After a stunning debut on Raw last week, Cruiserweight sensation Mustafa Ali hit his first roadblock, coming up short against Tony Nese thanks to what is becoming The Premier Athlete’s signature style — all-out pummeling. After tripping Ali off the top rope before he could execute the Inverted 450 Splash, Nese disposed of Ali with a running knee to the head and Cruiserweight division commentator Austin Aries — a storied competitor in his own right — seized upon the opportunity to interview Nese. Unsurprisingly, however, The Greatest Man That Ever Lived was a bit too snarky in his interview for The Premier Athlete’s liking. Nese dismissed Aries, but if the smirk “A-Double” gave Nese on the way out is any indication, there may be more mockery still to come.
