Lio Rush def. Oney Lorcan to become the top contender to Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak
Lio Rush is back — both in the ring and, now, in title contention.
Returning to WWE TV for the first time since April, The Man of the Hour received a “Welcome back” chant as he faced the double-tough and fearless Oney Lorcan in a match to decide the next challenger to WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak. True to form, The Boston Brawler exercised total and complete reckless abandon as he raged full steam ahead at Rush. Yet, even Lorcan’s dangerous attack couldn’t stop the fleetfooted and endlessly innovative Man of the Hour in his surprise return.
After enduring a targeted attack on his left knee, as well as a deluge of vicious open-hand chops, Rush caught Lorcan in a standing Spanish Fly, which was followed by the Dragon’s Call Frog Splash and the pinfall.
Even after a prolonged hiatus, Rush continues to be The Man of the Hour, and following his latest triumph, the hour is nigh.
