Tony Nese def. Cedric Alexander

Cedric Alexander vs. Tony Nese: WWE 205 Live, Aug. 8, 2017

Tony Nese sets out to show Cedric Alexander what it takes to compete with "The Premier Athlete."

Last month on WWE 205 Live, “The Premier Athlete” Tony Nese helped himself and his partner, TJP, earn a victory against Rich Swann and Cedric Alexander by pushing Alexander off the top rope. While the result allowed The Duke of Dab to gain a victory in his rivalry with Swann, it also helped set the stage for Alexander’s battle with Nese.

On paper, Alexander and Nese are well-matched – both competitors rely on speed and power inside the squared circle. However, as “The Premier Athlete” showed off his impressive physique, Alexander showed his opponent exactly what he was capable of with a flurry of fast-paced offense, leaving Nese reeling.

Taking a moment to catch his breath, “The Premier Athlete” recovered, countered a potential high-risk maneuver and used his power to impose his will on Alexander.

As both Superstars scored near-falls and strikes, a sequence of rapid-fire pinfall counters ended with Nese claiming the victory with a handful of tights.

After the match, “The Premier Athlete” told Alexander that despite a valiant effort, he is only second best.
