Tony Nesse challenged Buddy Murphy for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at the Grandest Stage of them ALL. After a stellar match on the WrestleMania 35 pre-show, Nese, the Premier Athlete, overthrew Murphy and became the NEW WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
The Long Island native has been on the 205 LIVE roster since it’s inception and finally, his hard work has been paid off. This is Nese’s first reign as the Cruiserweight Champion and it will be interesting to see what his title run brings to the table.
