Akira Tozawa def. Tony Nese
Akira Tozawa faced a formidable challenge in the form of “The Premier Athlete” Tony Nese on WWE 205 Live. With the contest underway, Nese immediately used his power and physical presence to keep Tozawa on the ropes. However, The Stamina Monster relied on his speed and agility to turn the tide. Unfortunately for Tozawa, “The Premier Athlete” again asserted his strength, as The Brian Kendrick made his way to ringside to cheer on Nese.
Battling back and forth, Nese unleashed a flurry of strikes against the ropes and was warned by the referee. Attempting to help “The Premier Athlete” by striking Tozawa, Kendrick was caught by the official, distracting Nese and allowing The Japanese Superstar to secure victory.
Following Kendrick’s failed attempt to help Nese, “The Premier Athlete” unleashed his anger on The Man with a Plan. Delighted with Kendrick’s folly, Tozawa offered a new lesson: “You need to have eyes in the back of your head.”
