Akira Tozawa def. Drew Gulak

Akira Tozawa vs. Drew Gulak: WWE 205 Live, Sept. 5, 2017

Feeling left out of the Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match, Drew Gulak presented his plan for a better WWE 205 Live, but he was interrupted by a returning Akira Tozawa.

Reigniting his campaign for a better WWE 205 Live, Drew Gulak was disappointed that he did not have the chance to compete in the Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match for an opportunity to challenge Neville for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Believing that his message hasn’t been clear and he’s being punished for trying to remake WWE 205 Live, Gulak showed a PowerPoint presentation with his proposals. However, by the time he got to pitching the third idea, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Akira Tozawa made his way to the ring ready for action.

Despite Gulak showing off his technical prowess early in the contest, Tozawa recovered quickly and began to unload on his opponent with fast, high-impact strikes. The Japanese Superstar remained relentless, forcing Gulak to retreat out of the ring. That allowed Gulak ample time to muster the strength to throw The Stamina Monster into the barricade with tremendous force.

With Tozawa clearly in pain and favoring his back, Gulak pounced and targeted highly focused strikes and holds to maximize the punishment to The Stamina Monster’s back and limbs. Remaining on active defense, Tozawa managed to stay in the battle long enough to rally the WWE Universe with his signature chant and retake control of the match.

Although Gulak managed to stay in the battle with short flurries of offense, Tozawa’s relentless offense was too much manage. Firmly in control, Tozawa took down Gulak with a kick followed by his patented Senton from the top rope for the win.
