Oney Lorcan def. Humberto Carrillo

Humberto Carrillo vs. Oney Lorcan: WWE 205 Live, March 5, 2019

Humberto Carrillo faces NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan in the first round of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.

When Humberto Carrillo made his WWE 205 Live debut, it was to answer an Open Challenge from WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy. Despite a losing effort, he immediately impressed the WWE Universe, and has since become a rising force in the Cruiserweight division. However, in search for the best Cruiserweights in the world, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick invited NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan to compete in the WWE Cruiserweight Title Tournament.

As the match got underway, both Lorcan and Carrillo approached each other cautiously before an agile exchange that left neither with a clear advantage. As Carrillo relied on his speed, Lorcan maintained his aggressiveness to keep the Mexican Superstar grounded. Following a push from Carrillo, the NXT Superstar unleashed on his opponent, dropping him with a suplex on the outside before unloading precision strikes in the center of the ring.

Lorcan kept the pressure on Carrillo, but the resilience and speed of the Mexican highflier kicked into high gear and he soon battled back, resetting the pace of the match and managing to flatten Lorcan on the outside on two occasions. However, as Carrillo went for another high-flying maneuver, Lorcan leveled him with a European uppercut before an exchange of strikes on the ring apron ended with a fisherman’s suplex at Carrillo’s expense.

The two continued to battle back-and-forth, trading near-falls and high-impact strikes, knowing that an opportunity for a match at WrestleMania was at stake. As Carrillo seized the opportunity to secure victory with a moonsault, Lorcan countered before leveling his opponent with a clothesline, and then executed his patented Half and Half suplex for the win.
