Isaiah "Swerve" Scott and Jake Atlas collide in pivotal Cruiserweight matchup
Isaiah “Swerve” Scott made a very good point on the most recent edition of WWE 205 Live: He is the only Superstar to defeat Santos Escobar since the leader of Legado del Fantasma debuted in WWE.
Granted it was when Escobar was competing as El Hijo del Fantasma and before he recruited Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza to watch his back, but “Swerve” nevertheless made quite the impression in the seesaw battle and is targeting a title bout with the NXT Cruiserweight Champion.
He’ll have a chance to strengthen his case tonight on NXT when he clashes with Jake Atlas, who came just one win away from competing for the NXT Cruiserweight Title during a recent eight-man tournament to determine a new champion, though he was defeated by Drake Maverick in a Triple Threat Match that also included Kushida. Now, Atlas is looking to reenter the title picture.
Which Superstar will claim a pivotal victory? Find out on NXT tonight at 8/7 C!
