Lio Rush def. Oney Lorcan

Lio Rush vs. Oney Lorcan: WWE 205 Live, Oct. 25, 2019

NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush returns to WWE 205 Live to face Oney Lorcan in a non-title contest.

Last month, Lio Rush defeated Oney Lorcan in a battle to determine who would challenge Drew Gulak for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship. The Man of the Hour emerged victorious and would go on to defeat Gulak and claim the title. Tonight, Rush returned to WWE 205 Live for the first time since winning the championship and once again faced Lorcan – in a non-title match – as The Boston Brawler looked to prove he is deserving of a championship opportunity.

Rather than try to match speed with Rush as he did last month on WWE NXT, Lorcan instead used his size and power advantage, but The Man of the Hour’s incredible speed and agility acted as an effective countermeasure to Lorcan’s offensive approach. The Boston Brawler did his best to keep Rush grounded and slow the pace of the contest.

In control of the contest, Lorcan attempted a Half and Half from the top rope, but Rush countered. Displaying his uncanny intuition, Rush then countered another move from his opponent with a tornado DDT. The Man of the Hour’s adrenaline surged, and he took down The Boston Brawler with a series of fast-paced maneuvers before taking out Lorcan with the Final Hour.

Following Rush’s victory, Tony Nese – who has his sights set on the NXT Cruiserweight Championship – entered the ring, ready for his match. Confronting the champion, The Premier Athlete invited Rush to watch him in action from ringside.
