Lio Rush def. Josh Morrell
Next week on WWE 205 Live, Lio Rush will face former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander after The Man of the Hour confronted and taunted The Soul of WWE 205 Live at the WWE Performance Center, where the recently slumping Alexander was looking to rediscover his edge.
Looking to make an example out of his opponent Josh Morrell, Rush unexpectedly found himself on defense. Morrell mounted an impressive effort that caught Rush off guard. In an act of desperation, Rush knocked his opponent off the top rope to the outside. Showing off a new, more aggressive side, The Man of the Hour unleashed his rage on Morrell, battering his opponent in the corner before executing the Final Hour for the win.
After the match, Rush took the microphone and dedicated his match to Cedric Alexander. Acknowledging Alexander’s losing streak, Rush addressed The Soul of WWE 205 Live’s decision to “go back to school” at the WWE Performance Center, respecting Alexander’s hard work. However, Rush claimed no one works harder than he does and promised to put a permanent end to The Age of Alexander.
