Ariya Daivari def. Akira Tozawa via Match Stoppage

Akira Tozawa vs. Ariya Daivari: Raw, July 17, 2017

The Stamina Monster represents The Titus Brand against the "honorable" Ariya Daivari.

A good coach knows when to make an unpopular call. That doesn’t mean the player has to like it.

Ariya Daivari ruthlessly targeted Akira Tozawa’s injured shoulder in a match on Raw that stemmed from a backstage confrontation, and it got to the point that even The Stamina Monster’s burning heart couldn’t compensate for the shortcomings of his body.

Apparently fearing for his client’s safety, Titus O’Neil at ringside got the attention of the referee and successfully petitioned for the match to be stopped, leading to an automatic win for The Persian Lion — much to the dismay of Tozawa, who left the ring without his benefactor while Daivari dedicated his win to the Iranian Olympic gold medalist wrestler Hassan Yazdani in his native language. Tozawa did seem to accept Titus' post-match apology, with one big caveat: That he organize a rematch on tomorrow's 205 Live.
