Tonight's episode of WWE NXT featured a grudge match between two former Cruiserweight Champions, Lio Rush and Angel Garza. They went on a back-and-forth battle to determine the no. 1 contender for Jordan Devlin's NXT Cruiserweight Championship.
Towards the end of the match, it looked like Garza had the upper hand but Rush would counter the Wing Clipper into a rollup to get the three count. He was soon confronted by the reigning Champion, Jordan Devlin, and the commentators confirmed their clash for next week's NXT.
NXT Cruiserweight Championship
Both Lio Rush and Angel Garza have been NXT Cruiserweight Champions. They were embroiled in a heated rivalry towards the end of last year and it culminated with Garza winning the title from The Man of the Hour. However, it couldn't enjoy a lengthy reign as Jordan Devlin defeated him, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, Travis Banks in a Fatal 4-Way match to win the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at Worlds Collide.
Garza didn't get a one-on-one rematch for the title and after tonight's match against Lio Rush, it looks like he won't be getting that opportunity any time soon. Jordan Devlin will be defending the NXT Cruiserweight Championship against Lio Rush on the upcoming episode of the Black and Gold brand.
Will The Irish Ace be able to retain his title? Or, will Lio Rush emerge as a two-time Cruiserweight Champion? We will have to wait for one more week to get this answer!Published 13 Feb 2020, 08:13 IST
