Lio Rush def. Angel Garza for an NXT Cruiserweight Title opportunity
Lio Rush came to collect an opportunity to regain the NXT Cruiserweight Title — and he got what he came for.
The Man of The Hour earned a matchup with reigning champion Jordan Devlin by virtue of knocking off sworn enemy and fellow former titleholder Angel Garza, who was equally motivated to recapture the gold.
But in a confrontation earlier in the evening, Rush vowed to Garza that he was a different man from the one Garza knocked off last year to become champion. He backed up those words in the squared circle, too, demonstrating a renewed focus to win the latest chapter of his rivalry with NXT's resident lothario.
Devlin arrived immediately afterward to confront his challenger-to-be, reminding Rush to never bet against an ace.
