Tony Nese and Drew Gulak def. Cedric Alexander & Mustafa Ali
Next week on Raw, Cedric Alexander, Mustafa Ali, Tony Nese and Drew Gulak will compete in a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine who will face Rich Swann for an opportunity to challenge Enzo Amore for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. On WWE 205 Live, Ali and Alexander teamed up to face Gulak and Nese – or as Enzo calls them, “Team PowerPoint.” Gulak explained to the WWE Universe that The Premier Athlete brings the power, while he makes the most salient points. However, before he could launch a new installment of his PowerPoint Presentation, Alexander made his way to the ring, ready for a fight.
Gulak and Nese have a long history of being tag team partners, and early in the contest, the duo maintained control by showing off their experience working together. However, Alexander and Ali quickly forced the match into a back and forth, relying on their combined speed.
Unfortunately for Ali and Alexander, their teamwork hit rocky terrain when Gulak distracted Alexander and prevented Ali from making the tag. A brief argument allowed Gulak to move in and strike, eventually giving himself and The Premier Athlete a sizeable advantage.
Gulak and Nese displayed their familiarity by making regular transitions in and out of the ring. The effectiveness of “Team PowerPoint’s” teamwork was on display when Nese prevent Ali from being tagged in, allowing Nese and Gulak to continue to dish out punishment.
When Alexander finally made the tag to Ali, the well-rested high-flyer took down both his opponents and regained control of the match. When he tried to tag Alexander, Ali discovered he wasn’t there and briefly found himself at a disadvantage.
Despite their attempts to find each other on the same page, the miscommunications between Alexander and Ali would cost them dearly, as Nese threw Ali into his own partner and used the resulting momentum to pin Ali for the victory.
As Alexander and Ali tried to figure out what happened, Amore congratulated Nese and Gulak for their – and The Zo Train’s – victory.
