Interim Cruiserweight Title Tournament Highlights, Main Event Next
We see highlights from WWE NXT earlier this week of the Interim Cruiserweight Championship action and the triple-threat match being set up for next week’s black-and-gold brand show.
Then we see highlights of Isaiah “Swerve” Scott’s promo and him being attacked by Tony Nese on the show. From there it is announced that Scott will take on Tyler Breeze in one-on-one action tonight, and that match is next.
Isaiah “Swerve” Scott vs. Tyler Breeze
After a commercial for the return of Undertaker: The Last Ride this Sunday on the WWE Network, we head back into the arena where Tyler Breeze’s music plays and Prince Pretty begins making his way down to the ring.
After getting a ton of praise from heel commentator Corey Graves, finally, the music plays bringing out Prince Pretty’s opponent for tonight, Isaish “Swerve” Scott.
The announcers talk about Scott not being as smiley and happy as usual, seemingly all business tonight. The bell sounds and these two lock up to kick off this week’s 205 Live featured match.
Breeze takes Scott down with an arm-drag early on and then hops up on the top rope to gloat. Back to action, Scott does a good job of getting going until he appears to botch a spot, getting tripped up in the ropes before rolling out to the floor, slamming the ring apron in frustration.
Finally, Breeze goes out after Scott on the floor, whipping him into the ring barricade. He rolls him back into the ring, lands a couple of stomps and goes for a pin that only gets two from the official for this one. A snap-suplex later and Breeze tries to cover “Swerve” Scott again, and again Scott kicks out.
Back on their feet, Breeze whips Scott into the turnbuckles in the corner with a vengeance. Out of nowhere, Scott blasts Breeze with a stiff right hand. The sound of the shot could be heard echo’ing throughout the empty arena. Scott with a flying stomp on the ring apron outside the ropes before going to work on Breeze on the floor.
The announcers put over Scott’s new mean streak while he continues to show a violent onslaught of offense on Prince Pretty. A rolling thunder / code-breaker type of move leads to a close near fall from Isaish. Breeze now cuts off Scott’s big offensive run, taking him down briefly before Scott takes right back over.
Scott hits a big spot off the top for a close near fall. After only getting a two count, Scott pounds the mat in anger / frustration as the announcers again point out his non-nonsense business approach this week. Breeze hits a super-model kick out of the blue for a close near fall that almost stole the match for Prince Pretty, however Scott managed to kick out before the ref’s count hit three.
Seconds later, Scott turns the tide back in his favor and after culminating his comeback with a Confidence Boost off the ropes, Isaish “Swerve” Scott picks up the big win via pin fall.
Winner: Isaiah “Swerve” Scott
