WWE NXT added the Cruiserweight Championship to the brand and Lio Rush won the title last month, after defeating Drew Gulak. Now he will be defending his title.
During this week’s NXT, an NXT Cruiserweight Title match has been made official for next week’s show. Angel Garza will be challenging Rush for the title. When Rush offered a handshake, he got slapped by Garza.
Prior to NXT airing, Rush also competed during the 205 Live tapings. He defeated Raul Mendoza in a singles match.
