Lince Dorado def. Ariya Daivari
Returning to action for the first time since his loss to Oney Lorcan in an intense Anything Goes Match three weeks ago, Ariya Daivari looked to prove he was still in contention for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against The Lucha House Party’s Lince Dorado.
A mix of speed and agility from Dorado and Daivari kept the early moments of the match at a standstill, and just as The Golden Lynx tried to take control with a Golden Rewind, Daivari quickly rolled out of the ring. Frustrated, Daivari started to make his way back to the locker room before Dorado gave chase and took the fight directly to his opponent.
Back inside the ring, The Persian Lion begged for a reprieve as The Lucha House Party’s hothead started to build momentum, but Daivari struck back by launching Dorado off the top rope and sending him crashing to the arena floor.
Daivari’s attempt to drop the masked Superstar from the top rope failed to pay dividends, as Dorado countered and brought the battle back to the mat. However, Daivari again regained control and leveled The Golden Lynx with a huge DDT before mocking Memphis’ own Jerry “The King” Lawler, much to the WWE Universe’s chagrin.
However, Daivari’s taunts allowed Dorado the time to recover and launch a high-risk offense. Taking flight off the top rope, The Golden Lynx was taken out of mid-air by a superkick, but The Persian Lion was unable to secure a pinfall.
Lince Dorado again attempted the Golden Rewind but was caught in the Million Dollar Dream. Struggling to break free, Dorado countered the hold into a near-fall, but Daivari quickly reciprocated.
Daivari again found himself on defense as Dorado charged forward, rolled around his opponent and rolled him up for the 1-2-3.
