Cruiserweight title match official for WWE WrestleMania 35

With Tony Nese winning 205 Live's number one contender's tournament, the Cruiserweight Championship match for WrestleMania 35 is now official.

Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy will defend his title against Nese at WrestleMania in East Rutherford, New Jersey on April 7. Nese defeated Cedric Alexander in the finals of the number one contender's tournament on tonight's 205 Live, with Nese kicking out of the Lumbar Check and hitting the Running Nese to win.

Nese and Alexander shook hands after the match.

Murphy and Nese have been aligned on 205 Live, but Murphy attacked Nese in an angle to close this week's episode. Murphy raised Nese's arm -- but then hit him with a knee strike. Murphy stood over Nese and held up the Cruiserweight title.
