Angel Garza def. Tony Nese to earn an opportunity at the NXT Cruiserweight Championship

Tony Nese vs. Angel Garza: WWE NXT, Nov. 6, 2019

The Premier Athlete and Angel Garza square off for the right to challenge NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush.

Angel Garza will try to make sure that The Man of The Hour's reign as NXT Cruiserweight Champion doesn't last much longer. 

With an impressive showing in a victory over Tony Nese to earn an opportunity at Lio Rush and his title, Garza appears fully capable of making that a reality when he challenges for the championship next week.

Showcasing the same flamboyance and athleticism that has made him a favorite at Full Sail in short order, Garza captivated the crowd once again. His trademark tearaway pants even came in handy, allowing him to slip out of The Premier Athlete's attempted powerbomb from the top rope.

Garza later made another escape, barely finding the bottom rope with his boot before the count of three after Nese delivered a 450 splash. 

Finishing Nese off moments later with the "Wingclipper," Garza soon found himself face-to-face with Rush on the stage. Instead of accepting a handshake, he left The Man of The Hour with a brisk slap — making it clear that he's coming to collect Rush's title next week.
