Nese vs. Tozawa vs. Gulak confirmed for WWE Stomping Grounds


Akira Tozawa and Drew Gulak will both be challenging for the Cruiserweight Championship at Stomping Grounds.

After last week's number one contender's match ended without a definitive winner, WWE announced on tonight's 205 Live that Tony Nese will defend the Cruiserweight title against Tozawa and Gulak in a triple threat match at Stomping Grounds on Sunday.

Tozawa, Gulak, Humberto Carrillo, and Oney Lorcan faced off in a number one contender's match on 205 Live last week. It ended with Gulak and Tozawa pinning each other at the same time, setting up the triple threat match for Stomping Grounds.

Gulak hit a superplex on Tozawa at the end of the number one contender's match. They both went for a cradle on the mat and simultaneously pinned each other.
