Isaiah “Swerve” Scott def. Raul Mendoza
Earlier this week, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott won a Triple Threat Match to earn a spot in the Fatal 4-Way Match for Angel Garza’s NXT Cruiserweight Championship at Worlds Collide. However, his impressive week faced a major challenge as Raul Mendoza stepped to Scott on WWE 205 Live.
Knowing full well that Scott is agile and fast, Mendoza sped up with own flurry of offense and kept his opponent reeling, shifting between technical know-how, agility and raw power. With the WWE Universe rallying behind him, “Swerve” battled back and put Mendoza on defense.
Attacking with precise and high-impact strikes, Scott maintained pressure on his opponent, but Mendoza nearly secured victory after striking back and slamming “Swerve” to the canvas.
They continued to exchange blows in the center of the ring, but Mendoza once again quickened the pace by drilling his opponent with a dropkick before flattening him on the outside. Mendoza tried to capitalize by attempting a high-risk maneuver, but when he missed, Scott delivered a knee to the face before executing his House Call for the win.
