Austin Aries def. Tony Nese

Austin Aries vs. Tony Nese: Raw, May 22, 2017

Ahead of his Submission Match at Extreme Rules against WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville, Austin Aries goes head-to-head against Tony Nese.

With the WWE Cruiserweight Title Match at Extreme Rules reconfigured into a Submission Match, the fate of the purple brand has come down to a battle of Last Chancery vs. Rings of Saturn. And while the former was enough to lead Austin Aries to a win on Raw, reigning champion Neville would not be so easily upstaged.

Facing off against Tony Nese, A-Double countered The Premier Athlete’s impressive, impact-based offense with a wide array of submissions culminating with the Last Chancery — a hold that has come within a hair of beating Neville twice now.

After observing the action from ringside, Neville entered the squared circle following the match and trapped The Premier Athlete in the Rings of Saturn, sending an unmistakable message to his No. 1 contender: Anything you can do, I can do better.
