Tony Nese def. Lince Dorado
CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex. –Last week on WWE 205 Live, TJ Perkins barely picked up a victory against Tony Nese. Following the match, Nese attacked Perkins, delivering a forceful statement. Focused on resetting his momentum, “The Premier Athlete” faced a daunting challenge in the form of the incredibly agile lucha libre star Lince Dorado.
Early in the contest, Nese was left on the defensive and struggled to mount an offense against his opponent. Nese – who can expertly use both his speed and strength to his advantage – managed to take control of the contest with powerful strikes keeping Dorado on his heels.
Although Dorado mounted a secondary flurry of offense, he was stopped in his tracks on the top rope when Nese tried to take off his mask. This allowed “The Premier Athlete” to toss his opponent from the top and follow up with a running knee for the win.
Following the match, Nese was set on sending the entire Cruiserweight division a message and continued to attack Dorado, however he was stopped by Perkins.
