Welcome to the fastest hour on television, 205 Live!
Two nights ago and WWE No Mercy, Enzo Amore defeated Neville to become the Cruiserweight Champion. There’s a sentence I never wanted to write. Yes, Enzo defeated Neville, albeit via a low blow, and he is the new King of the Cruiserweights.
Last night on Raw, Enzo Amore demanded a celebration of his big win, in which he wanted to retire his jersey. Then all of the cruiserweights came onto the stage and one-by-one Enzo insulted each of them, in very heel-like fashion. The former Champion, Neville, then came out and told Enzo some harsh truths: that nobody liked him, that he can’t wrestle, that the division regrets giving him a chance, and that he, on behalf of the division, will end him. Neville proceeded to come down to the ring and destroy Enzo – apparently eliminating himself from a title rematch. After Raw went off the air, Braun Strowman came down and further demolished Enzo by landing a running powerslam, and is if that wasn’t enough, the rest of the cruiserweights came down and beat on Enzo, hitting their finishers in the process. It was a really great segment if you really dislike Enzo Amore.
So, tonight, the Champion will get a chance to respond to the entire division and we should find out if Enzo is now a full heel. Also, who is the number one contender now that Neville is out of the running? Cedric Alexander? Rich Swann? Hopefully we get an idea tonight. That’s it for our preview, remember to join the conversation on the Ringside Talk app and enjoy the show!
