Lio Rush & Raul Mendoza vs. Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari: WWE 205 Live, Nov. 15, 2019

After earning each other’s respect, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush and Raul Mendoza team up to face Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari.

As the opening bell sounded, Ariya Daivari squared off with Raul Mendoza until Tony Nese charged forward and took Rush off the ring apron. Nese and Daivari enjoyed a brief upper hand until Mendoza and Rush turned up the speed and acrobatics, flattening their opponents on the outside. Back inside the ring, the champion and Mendoza displayed incredible teamwork at the expense of The Persian Lion.

Finally, The Premier Athlete tagged himself in and the tables turned as Nese focused on the champion after an assist from his partner on the outside. Keeping Rush isolated, Nese and Daivari took their time picking apart The Man of the Hour.

Using his speed, Rush avoided his opponents to tag in Mendoza, who sped up the pace of the contest, taking down both Nese and Daivari. However, The Premier Athlete attacked Mendoza’s knee and swung the match back into his side’s favor. Focusing on Mendoza, the WWE 205 Live originals worked together to keep the battle in their favor.

Once again using his speed to regain his composure, Mendoza countered an attack from Daivari and tagged in Rush. The NXT Cruiserweight Champion engaged in a dizzying flurry of fast-paced strikes on both opponents and nearly secured a pinfall.

Daivari and Nese regained control for a brief moment before the combined speed and agility of Mendoza and Rush once again nearly secured victory. Nese prepared for the 405 Splash, but Mendoza rolled away, allowing Rush to make a quick tag and execute the Final Hour for the victory.
