Gran Metalik def. TJP
Last week on WWE 205 Live, the first-ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP returned to action and defeated former titleholder Akira Tozawa, determined to reclaim his place at the top of the Cruiserweight division.
Preparing for his own return to the ring, Gran Metalik was being encouraged by his friend Kalisto in the backstage area when TJP interrupted, reminding the Mexican Superstar that he was victorious in their meeting during the finals of the Cruiserweight Classic.
Competing for the first time ever on WWE 205 Live, Metalik and TJP displayed their incredible speed and agility in an effort to gain an advantage early in the contest. TJP finally took control by knocking his opponent off the top rope and working to keep Metalik grounded.
The winner of the Cruiserweight Classic maintained control of the match, focusing his attacks and technical prowess on his opponent’s upper body. However, Metalik battled back with a huge powerbomb from the top rope. TJP’s inability to secure a pinfall led to his own mounting frustration.
Taking control of the battle as TJP’s anger increased, Gran Metalik drove an elbow into his opponent’s sternum before securing the victory following a devastating Metalik Driver. As Kalisto came out to celebrate the victory with his fellow luchador, TJP took out his aggression by tearing apart the announce table and yelling at the WWE Universe.
