Mustafa Ali def. Tony Nese

Mustafa Ali vs. Tony Nese: WWE 205 Live, May 9, 2017

Following a string of losses thanks to Drew Gulak's "no high-flying" campaign, Mustafa Ali doubles down on his high-risk arsenal against Tony Nese.

Two weeks after being defeated by Tony Nese due to Drew Gulak’s interference – and one week removed from a losing effort to Gulak – Mustafa Ali entered the O2 Arena ready to regain momentum against “The Premier Athlete.” Confident following his previous victory, Nese made sure to take plenty of time to show off his physique before the action really got underway.

In the early moments of the match, Ali seemed to be restrained – likely feeling the effects of Gulak’s “no high-flying” campaign. With a more grounded strategy not paying dividends, Ali relied momentarily on his agility and high-flying ability – much to the chagrin of Drew Gulak, who was watching from the locker room. However, Nese’s raw power and physical dominance remained a determining factor in the pace of the match.

Following a hurricanrana from the top-rope, Ali picked up speed and used his agility to take control of the bout. Nese would not go down easy, and the Cruiserweights battled back and forth, but the fast-paced offense of Ali proved to be too much, as he executed an inverted 450 Splash for the win.
