Kalisto vs. Tony Nese

Cruiserweight Championship No. 1 Contender’s Tournament Match

Tony Nese not only used his size and strength advantage throughout this match to overpower Kalisto, he also flew around the ring a bit, proving that he could do both at an elite level.

Kalisto hit a big suicide dive on Nese, but Nese took over once the two got to the floor. Nese landed a big back body drop on Kalisto over the steel steps, which could have gone horribly wrong, but thankfully didn’t.

Once they got back in the ring, Kalisto hit Nese with a tornado DDT, but only got a two count from it. Kalisto went for a Salida Del Sol from the top rope, but Nese countered it into a German suplex, which made for a neat spot.

Nese then went for a 450 splash, but missed. That led to Kalisto landing a 450 splash on Nese, but Nese got his foot on the rope during the pinfall attempt.

After a nasty-looking release German suplex into the corner, Nese landed The Running Kneese (this needs a new name, Tony…) to score the pinfall victory.

Winner: Tony Nese



Drew Gulak vs. Brian Kendrick

Cruiserweight Championship No. 1 Contender’s Tournament Match

This match was loaded with tons of awesome mat wrestling sequences and unique holds, which the Charlotte crowd did not like, for whatever reason. There were lots of “this is boring” chants, and even some boos after the near-falls, but don’t let that fool you, because this match was good stuff.

Drew Gulak hit Brian Kendrick with a nasty German suplex early on in that match, but only got a one count from it, which got our attention immediately. Gulak also landed a few big clotheslines, some brutal chops, and even did some joint manipulation. Simply put, he looked awesome during this match.

Gulak went for the Gu-Lock, but Kendrick countered it into the Captain’s Hook, which Gulak eventually escaped from.

Kendrick then went for a pinning combination, which was countered by Gulak into the Gu-Lock. To his credit, Kendrick never tapped out, but he did go to sleep, which ended the match in Gulak’s favor.

Winner: Drew Gulak
