“Hail to the Crown” by CFO$ featuring From Ashes to New
Cruiserweight Title Number One Contender Gauntlet Match
Mustafa Ali vs TJP vs Drew Gulak vs Tony Nese vs Kalisto
(referee: Charles Robinson; backstage interview: Dasha Fuentes, Cedric Alexander)
Result: Kalisto wins and will get a Cruiserweight Title Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble
Fall 1: Mustafa Ali pins TJP after an 054 (0:00 – 9:46)
Fall 2: Drew Gulak wins via referee stoppage with a Gu-Lock (11:51 – 22:40)
Fall 3: Drew Gulak forces Tony Nese to submit to a Gu-Lock (24:05 – 30:38)
Fall 4: Kalisto pins Drew Gulak after Salida Del Sol (32:19 – 39:28)
Very good match. As with a lot of gauntlet matches, the first half was maybe better than the second half. TJP and Mustafa Ali had a great segment, as did Ali and Gulak. Gulak looked great in the match too. I liked how Tony Nese’s vendetta cost him. Everyone had something that made them stand out in this, except maybe for Kalisto.
I liked this as a change of pace. It was similar to the recent gauntlet match on RAW in that it changed the format of the show. I really enjoy things like that.
Match of the Night
That’s obvious, so I’ll say my favorite match-up within the gauntlet was TJP vs Mustafa Al. I’d like to see that develop into a full feud soon.
