Andrade "Cien" Almas def. Oney Lorcan
Oney Lorcan and Andrade “Cien” Almas thrilled the NXT Universe in Osaka, Japan, several weeks ago during a battle that saw Lorcan walk away victorious. The Full Sail University crowd was firmly in the Boston bruiser’s corner as Almas tried to play mind games with his opponent. But Lorcan was in no mood for games, as he dropkicked Cien out of the ring and chased him down for a neckbreaker on the arena floor. But back in the ring, Almas turned the tides of the bout by creating space and targeting Lorcan’s knee, allowing him to connect with a hammerlock DDT to get the victory.
After the battle, Dasha Fuentes asked Cien what can be expected from him in 2017. After berating the NXT Universe, Almas said that he had two names on his list for this year. He crossed the first off with his win over Lorcan. He made it clear in two languages who the second was, declaring, “Roderick Strong, I’m coming for you!”
