Ali and Nese eye a title opportunity

Mustafa Ali vs. Hideo Itami - Falls Count Anywhere Match: WWE 205 Live, Oct. 24, 2018

Mustafa Ali and Hideo Itami aim to settle their bitter rivalry once and for all in a brutal Falls Count Anywhere Match.

Two weeks ago on WWE 205 Live, Tony Nese defeated Lio Rush, TJP, Gran Metalik and former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander in a wild Fatal 5-Way Match. By pinning Alexander, The Premier Athlete picked up his second straight victory over The Soul of WWE 205 Live. Nese’s performance was undeniably impressive, and the Fatal 5-Way victory proved that he was primed for a potential opportunity to challenge his training partner and WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy.

However, Nese isn’t the only Superstar to turn in an impressive performance with the prospect of a title opportunity. Last week, Mustafa Ali defeated Hideo Itami in a bitter Falls Count Anywhere Match. The Heart of WWE 205 Live has pushed himself to his physical and mental limits throughout the year, and his collision with Itami was no different. After battling throughout the arena, a jaw-dropping 450 splash onto Itami through a table showed WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick all he needed to determine that The Heart of WWE 205 Live was ready.

Tonight, Tony Nese and Mustafa Ali will battle to decide who will challenge Buddy Murphy for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Tune in to WWE 205 Live, tonight at 7/6 C, streaming on the award-winning WWE Network.
