Tony Nese def. Akira Tozawa
After being taught a lesson by Zo Train leader Enzo Amore two weeks ago, Tony Nese made it clear he was upset with his Zo Train colleagues, but that he also understood the impact The Certified G has had on his career. Questioned by Akira Tozawa about whether he was still on The Zo Train before their match, The Premier Athlete responded by punching his opponent.
As a result, as soon as the opening bell sounded, Tozawa charged after Nese and unleashed a flurry of strikes. The Premier Athlete recovered, and the two Superstars began to brawl back and forth. Focusing his frustration into his power and speed, The Premier Athlete kept Tozawa on the defensive and didn’t let the WWE Universe’s “Ah” chants deter his focus.
Seizing an opportunity put the match away, Tozawa ascended the ropes to prepare for his patented Senton, but Nese countered, knocking his opponent off the ropes and immediately executing his Running Knee Strike for the victory.
