Akira Tozawa def. Drew Gulak in a Street Fight
Calling himself “Enzo adjacent,” proud member of “The Zo Train” Drew Gulak explained to the WWE Universe that if the WWE Cruiserweight Champion is from the streets, then by proxy, Gulak is as well. Of course, Gulak saw the impending Street Fight as an opportunity to permanently silence Akira Tozawa’s chants, but before he could kick off his PowerPoint Presentation, The Japanese Superstar made his way to the ring, ready for action.
As they traded blows early in the contest, The Stamina Monster took control of the contest despite Gulak targeting his rival’s previously injured throat. As the Japanese Superstar dove through the ropes, Gulak caught him and suplexed him onto the entrance ramp. With the advantage in his favor, Gulak methodically attacked his nemesis, eventually tossing him back in the ring and using his “No Chants” sign as a weapon.
Putting his animosity toward Tozawa on full display, Gulak filled the ring with chairs and continued his brutal offense, certainly proving his toughness. With Gulak demanding The Stamina Monster give up, Tozawa soon lived up to his moniker with the WWE Universe chanting with him and turning the tide by tossing Gulak into the “No Chants” sign, splitting its wooden post in two.
Rejuvenated, Tozawa answered Houston’s call and introduced a table into the bout. However, the pause in action gave Gulak the chance to strike back and again take control, knocking his opponent back to the outside. The shift in control was short-lived, as Tozawa tossed Gulak across the announce table and leveled him with a cannonball senton off the table.
Seemingly fed up with his nemesis, The Stamina Monster dug deep under the ring to retrieve a garbage can and a Kendo stick. From there, Tozawa placed the can over Gulak and swung away with the Kendo stick until his rival was laid out on the table. Ascending the ropes, the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion nailed his patented Senton, driving Gulak through the table before securing the pinfall victory.
