Former champions aim to make their case
Tony Nese and Lio Rush each reached the top of the Cruiserweight division in 2019 by capturing the NXT Cruiserweight Championship. Both Superstars have set their sights on reclaiming the title, and each is looking to make his case. They were certain to cross paths eventually, and they will clash for the first time ever tonight.
Adding to the high-stakes nature of the contest, Nese and Rush are not competing in the Fatal 4-Way Match for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at Worlds Collide, and both are looking to prove that they belong there.
Which former champion will make a statement tonight? Don’t miss WWE 205 Live, streaming live tonight at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
