Swann is determined to reclaim the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
After hearing some of the Cruiserweights air their grievances about “The Zo Train” last night on Raw, General Manager Kurt Angle decided that the next challenger for Enzo Amore’s WWE Cruiserweight Championship would be determined over the course of three weeks. The Cruiserweights would compete in two Fatal 4-Way Match qualifying rounds over the next two weeks, and the winners of each qualifier would go one-on-one to determine who will face The Realest Champ in the Room.
The first contest featured “Zo Train” members Ariya Daivari and Noam Dar, as well as former Cruiserweight Champions Akira Tozawa and Rich Swann. It was clear early in the bout that Swann brought his “A-game” when he took out all competitors with a high-risk move to the outside before executing his patented Phoenix Splash to pin Dar.
Elated with the victory, Swann recognized he was one step closer to becoming a two-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion, but he still has to face the winner of next week’s Fatal 4-Way Match!
With so much at stake for Swann and the entire Cruiserweight division, who will try to get one step ahead of the competition? Don’t miss WWE 205 Live, tonight at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
