Lio Rush got here to gather an opportunity to regain the NXT Cruiserweight Title — and he acquired what he got here for.
The Man of The Hour earned a matchup with reigning champion Jordan Devlin by advantage of knocking off sworn enemy and fellow former titleholder Angel Garza, who was equally motivated to recapture the gold.
But in a confrontation earlier within the night, Rush vowed to Garza that he was a distinct man from the one Garza knocked off final yr to change into champion. He backed up these phrases within the squared circle, too, demonstrating a renewed focus to win the most recent chapter of his rivalry with NXT’s resident lothario.
Devlin arrived instantly afterward to confront his challenger-to-be, reminding Rush to by no means guess in opposition to an ace.
