Neville def. Mustafa Ali

Neville vs. Mustafa Ali: WWE 205 Live, March 21, 2017

Following his heated exchange with Austin Aries, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville battles Mustafa Ali in singles competition.

During Neville’s address to the WWE Universe and the Cruiserweight division last week, he was interrupted by Mustafa Ali, who was on his way to the ring for a match. Feeling slighted – and clearly worked up over his spat with Austin Aries – The King of the Cruiserweights was ready to unload on Ali.

Rising to the occasion, Ali wasted no time going on the offensive and showing the WWE Universe – and the WWE Cruiserweight Champion – what he’s capable of. Using sheer power and rage, Neville stopped Ali in his tracks but was distracted by Aries on commentary, allowing Ali to regain his composure.

Relying on his aggression, Neville proceeded to dismantle Ali, sending a clear message to his WrestleMania opponent. Not going down without a fight, Ali proved he could hold his own against The King of the Cruiserweights, scoring multiple near-falls and keeping the WWE Universe – and Aries – on the edge of their seats.

Taking control of the match after an incredible release German suplex off the top rope, Neville made an example of his opponent. The King of the Cruiserweights delivered a crushing blow by slamming Ali into the ring post, scoring a submission victory and immediately staring down Aries.
