Ariya Daivari confronted WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville and Akira Tozawa
A banged-up Akira Tozawa came to Raw looking for another fight with Ariya Daivari after last week’s ill-fated matchup, but after Titus O’Neil got the match cancelled out of concern for his client's health, Tozawa dismissed his benefactor and decided to go it alone. As it turns out, Daivari had loftier designs in mind.
When The Stamina Monster first came to the ring to demand The Persian Lion present himself, he was instead met by WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville, who gleefully mocked his former challenger’s compromised state and paid dearly for it, suffering Tozawa’s big senton after a brawl.
Unfortunately for Tozawa, the maneuver aggravated his injured shoulder, so he was easy pickings for Daivari when he finally made his appearance … as was Neville. The Persian Lion decimated both Cruiserweights with a pair of hellacious chickenwing-clothesline combos before laying his hungry eyes on the Cruiserweight Title itself.
