Nese to challenge for Cruiserweight title at WWE Extreme Rules

Drew Gulak's first Cruiserweight Championship defense will be against former champion Tony Nese.

Nese defeated Akira Tozawa in a number one contender's match on this week's 205 Live and will challenge for Gulak's title at Extreme Rules. The pay-per-view is taking place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 14.

Gulak became Cruiserweight Champion by defeating Nese and Tozawa in a triple threat match on Sunday's Stomping Grounds pre-show. Nese was champion going into the match but didn't take the fall. After Nese was sent to the outside, Gulak hit a torture rack neckbreaker on Tozawa to win the title.
