Tony Nese def. Oney Lorcan & Ariya Daivari

Oney Lorcan vs. Tony Nese vs. Ariya Daivari: WWE 205 Live, Oct. 18, 2019

Oney Lorcan, Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari collide in a Triple Threat Match as each Superstar looks to prove they deserve an opportunity for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship.

The WWE Draft brought major changes to WWE 205 Live as former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak, The Lucha House Party and Drake Maverick — though he is still WWE 205 Live General Manager —  were drafted to SmackDown and Humberto Carrillo and Akira Tozawa were drafted to Raw. While NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush awaits a challenger, Oney Lorcan, Ariya Daivari and former champion Tony Nese are determined to make their case that they deserve an opportunity by slugging it out in a Triple Threat Match.

As the opening bell sounded, Nese and Daivari teamed up to neutralize the hard-hitting Lorcan, taking turns attacking The Boston Brawler. The ever-resilient Lorcan battled back, fending off both opponents as they continued to maintain their alliance.

Soon enough, the allegiance between Nese and Daivari began to crack as Nese shouldered most of the fighting with Lorcan, while The Persian Lion would sneak in to try and score a pinfall. When Daivari tried to pin The Premier Athlete, all bets were off and it was every Superstar for himself.

Lorcan and Nese continued to battle as Daivari waited on the outside for the most opportune moment to strike. With The Premier Athlete reeling out of the ring, The Persian Lion focused his attention on Lorcan, but was derailed by an uppercut as he sailed off the top rope. Seizing his own opportunity, Nese returned to the fray, again focusing his attacks on The Boston Brawler. Getting back into the fight, Daivari and Nese resumed their alliance and took down Lorcan. However, just as Nese turned his back, Daivari attacked.

The Boston Brawler’s unbridled rage once again swung momentum in his favor as he leveled is opponents twice on the outside before nearly scoring victory following a double blockbuster inside the ring.

Exhausted from the battle, all three Superstars scored near-falls. As Daivari attempted his patented Hammerlock Lariat on Nese, The Premier Athlete ducked, allowing Lorcan to execute the Half and Half on The Persian Lion. However, as Lorcan nearly pinned Nese following a Half and Half after The Premier Athlete missed a 450 splash, Daivari barely broke the pinfall.

Battling on the top rope, Nese was sent tumbling to the arena floor by Lorcan, allowing The Boston Brawler to take down Daivari with a superplex. The Premier Athlete charged back into the ring and dropped Lorcan with a sunset driver for the win.

After the match, Nese welcomed Lio Rush back to the Cruiserweight division and made it known he’d be waiting for The Man of the Hour when he returns to WWE 205 Live next week.
