WWE 205 Live Results – July 16, 2019
We start off with a look at Sunday’s Cruiserweight Title match between Drew Gulak and Tony Nese.
Drew Gulak says for months, Tony Nese was looked at as the pinnacle of the division. How sad. Tony might be a premier athlete, but he did not have the killer instinct. Even after winning the title, Tony doubted his credibility. Drew says he proved that he is the greatest. Who will dare to step up next when you know what kind of pain and punishment awaits?
