Austin Aries won the Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match
Former champions TJ Perkins and The Brian Kendrick along with Akira Tozawa, Tony Nese and Austin Aries waged war in Pittsburgh in a high-stakes Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match that would guarantee the winner a ticket to The Ultimate Thrill Ride to challenge Neville for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
As expected, chaos immediately ensued with five Superstars vying for a WrestleMania opportunity in WWE 205 Live’s biggest main event ever. The stakes were high and each competitor took an opportunity to display his abilities in the center of the ring. However, the action truly intensified outside the ring following high-risk maneuvers from Tozawa, Perkins and Nese, respectively. Nese then upped the ante when he blasted Aries through the barricade with a running knee. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
Back inside the ring, “The Premier Athlete” attempted to capitalize further on his momentum but found himself trapped in an armbar and eliminated by Perkins. Irate over his elimination, Nese attacked Perkins but was stopped by Tozawa. Distracted by Nese, Tozawa was then eliminated by his rival, Kendrick.
The final three competitors were Aries and two former Cruiserweight Champions. Brief alliances were forged and all three Superstars stopped at nothing to punch their ticket to The Ultimate Thrill Ride. Kendrick prevented Perkins from potentially taking out A-Double, instead tripping the inaugural Cruiserweight Champion and pinning him in concert with Aries. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
The final clash of the intense battle came down to Aries – who only returned to in-ring competition the week prior – and former champion and experienced veteran The Brian Kendrick. Although The Man with a Plan nearly eliminated A-Double with The Captain’s Hook, an assist from Perkins allowed Aries to hit a perfectly-executed rolling elbow to secure the victory and challenge Neville for the Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania.
