Tony Nese is shown working out in the back but stops to address his match with Mustafa

Ali. He acknowledges that Ali wants to get back in the title picture but he is the premier athlete and he will finally get a chance to show what he can do.

The show takes a quick break.

We return to a TJP selfie promo. TJP is upset at the fact that he is again not on the show. TJP feels underappreciated because he doesn’t believe Maverick respects that he carried this division on his back. TJP said, One day he will gone and Maverick will have to refer him as, “The One that Got Away.”

Nese makes his entrance with Buddy Murphy as Ali looks on in the ring. As Nese and Murphy enter the ring to try and intimidate Ali, Cedric Alexander’s music hits and he comes out to second Ali.

Match 3: Tony Nese vs. Mustafa Ali

Nese misses a shot on Ali and Ali counters with an X-factor for a two-count.

Nese blocks an attempted DDT but both men run together with double clotheslines. The two men were battling on the top rope. Ali was pushed off but lands on his feet. Nese then followed uo with a huge clothesline for a near fall. As Nese prepared for his running knee strike, Ali countered. Ali set for the 054 but Murphy pulled Nese to the floor.

Alexander came over to confront the move when Ali leaped the referee and hit Nese on the floor. This led to a confrontation between Alexander and Murphy which led to the Cruiserweight Champion nailing a suicide dive on Murphy and sending him to the back. Nese hit a one-armed buckle bomb for a near-fall. Nese went for the running knees in the corner again but Ali moved. Ali was able to hit the 054 splash for the win.
