TJP def. Lince Dorado

Lince Dorado vs. TJP: WWE 205 Live, Sept. 19, 2018

The inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Champion looks to regain momentum in a fast-paced contest against The Lucha House Party's own Lince Dorado.

With The Lucha House Party continuing their white-hot rivalry with Tony Nese and Buddy Murphy in the wake of The Juggernaut’s victory against Gran Metalik last week, the lucha trio turned their attention to the first-ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP.

Fully recovered from a thumb injury, Lince Dorado hoped to build momentum and show off his full range of abilities against the confident former WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Early in the contest, The Golden Lynx matched speed and agility with his opponent, forcing The Cruisergreat to recalibrate his approach. The winner of the Cruiserweight Classic did just that, catching Dorado in a guillotine submission on the ropes.

TJP maintained pressure with a variety of high-flying moves, impactful strikes and maneuvers designed to maximize punishment. Refusing to back down, Dorado battled back. Unfortunately for the lucha sensation, TJP maintained his edge and unleashed highly-focused methodical strikes designed to weaken Dorado for a submission assault.

Focusing on his opponent’s upper body and arms, The Cruisergreat showcased his technical expertise, forcing Dorado to remain on defense, and any counterattacks were met with TJP’s overwhelming offense. However, TJP’s overconfidence did cost him, as his showboating allowed The Golden Lynx to recover and fight back, much to the delight of the WWE Universe.

In an act of desperation while on defense, TJP countered a move from Dorado and pulled off The Golden Lynx’s mask. With Dorado forced to cover his face with his hands, TJP’s appalling display of disrespect allowed him to score the pinfall. After the match, The Fil-Am Flash took Dorado’s noisemaker, continuing to taunt his vanquished opponent before being chased to the locker room by Dorado.
