Following Akira Tozawa’s incredible victory over Neville on Monday Night Raw to capture the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, The King of the Cruiserweights will get his opportunity to reclaim his crown at SummerSlam Kickoff!

Tozawa first challenged Neville for the gold at WWE Great Balls of Fire, and the titleholder survived only after using some questionable tactics. The next night on Raw, the Japanese Superstar demanded that his manager – Titus Worldwide founder and CEO Titus O’Neil – ensure a rematch.

However, Neville didn’t take kindly to Tozawa’s action in the aftermath of their singles battle, and he responded by locking The Stamina Monster in the Rings of Saturn and injuring his rival’s shoulder. Displaying his resilience and remaining laser-focused on securing another opportunity to challenge for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, Tozawa continued to compete through the injury – despite protests from O’Neil.

Though Tozawa initially secured his Cruiserweight Title Rematch for SummerSlam in a hard-fought contest on WWE 205 Live against Ariya Daivari, Titus O’Neil shocked the WWE Universe when he made a social media announcement on Aug. 14 that Tozawa would battle Neville for the title six days early on Team Red. He came, he saw and he overcame Neville.

Now that Tozawa stands on the top of the mountain, the stage is set for the Japanese Superstar to defend his title against the former champion during a special two-hour SummerSlam Kickoff.

Find out if The King of the Cruiserweights will reclaim the championship at SummerSlam Kickoff, streaming live on WWE Network tonight with a special start time of 5 ET/2 PT! It can also be seen on a free stream on WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest.
