No Way Jose def. Cezar Bononi
ATLANTA — After proclaiming last week that 2018 would be the year of No Way Jose, NXT’s resident party-starter got the year started on the right foot with an impressive win against the heavy-hitting Cezar Bononi. The Brazilian Bomber did everything in his power to pull the plug on Jose’s fiesta, using his raw strength to put Jose on his heels and even nailing the 245-pounder with a pump-handle powerslam. Yet, Jose would not be deterred. Spurred on by the NXT Universe, Jose rebounded and clocked Bononi with a pop-up punch to the jaw, putting the big man from Brazil down for the count.
