Following a back and forth on social media earlier today, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin found himself locked into a Triple Threat Match with former champions Lio Rush and Tony Nese. Both Nese and Rush were more than willing to welcome The Irish Ace to WWE 205 Live and each make their case for another title opportunity.

As the match got underway, Nese and Rush engaged in a verbal spat that was broken up by Devlin before Rush took down The Premier Athlete to focus on the champion. Agreeing to work together to combat Rush, Devlin and Nese prepared a huge superplex, but The Man of the Hour fought both off Superstars before taking them down with a double crossbody.

With adrenaline surging, Rush used his speed and agility to overwhelm both opponents, leveling both with a Come Up, but he was unable to secure the win. Chaos ensued as all three Superstars employed high-risk maneuvers to the outside.

The animosity between Nese and Rush boiled over, and Nese prevented a potential Final Hour and instead tossed Rush over the announce table, and Nese grew frustrated that he couldn’t secure a pinfall on Devlin following a Sunset Driver.

Nese attempted a 450 Splash on Devlin, but The Irish Ace rolled away, allowing Rush to launch himself into the air with the Final Hour. However, Nese got his knees up just in time and delivered a 450 Splash on Rush. Unfortunately for The Premier Athlete, Devlin grabbed him before the pin and executed the Devlin Side for the win.

After the match, Devlin grabbed a microphone to address the WWE Universe, Lio Rush, Tony Nese and even Angel Garza, promising to keep the NXT Cruiserweight Championship.
