Tonight on WWE 205 Live, Lio Rush has an opportunity to prove that he is truly Tthe Man of the Hour when he battles former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Akira Tozawa. Plus, TJP seeks retribution against Noam Dar.
After returning from injury and competing during the U.K. Championship Special, Noam Dar has generated a great deal of buzz with a rejuvenated spirit and desire to get back on track. The Scottish Supernova proved he was all business when he returned to WWE 205 Live and quickly silenced inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP.
For weeks, The Cruisergreat has been clamoring for greater competition and has lambasted WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick for showing what TJP believed to be a lack of respect. What The Duke of Dab didn’t expect was to be defeated by the retuning Dar in under 30 seconds. As a result, the winner of the first-ever WWE Cruiserweight Classic requested a rematch to prove that his defeat was just a fluke.
Find out tonight at 10/9 C on WWE 205 Live on the award-winning WWE Network!Two weeks ago on WWE 205 Live, Lio Rush made his way to ringside to observe Akira Tozawa in action. Following The Stamina Monster’s victory, Rush first praised Tozawa before changing tune and questioning what the former Cruiserweight Champion was doing with himself. Last week, Tozawa returned the favor, observing Rush in action against Colin Delaney before asking The Man of the Hour what he had accomplished and if he really wanted to face Tozawa.
An individual with a penchant for action, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick made the match official for tonight! Since arriving in the Cruiserweight division, Lio Rush has shown tremendous confidence, but he will face his first major challenge as he goes one-on-one with the hard-hitting Akira Tozawa.
Will the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion put an end to Rush Hour, or will Rush prove he is everything he claims to be?
