The second round of Cruiserweight Classic qualifying matches pressed on last night and let me tell you, the closer we get to declaring a winner, the harder these men push themselves. The heart, the drive and the physicality is undeniably present and each man should be incredibly proud of themselves. I know I am. Let’s see who will be moving onto the quarter finals:
Akira Towaza vs Jack Gallagher
Winner: Akira Towaza
Noam Dar vs Hoho Lun
Winner: Noam Dar
Brian Kenderick vs Tony Nese
Winner: Brian Kenderick
The WWE Universe learned last night that Akira Towaza will be competing against Gran Metalik in the quarter finals, but Dar’s and Kenderick’s opponents are unknown at this time. I’ve become such a huge fan of Gallagher’s since the Cruiserweight Classic began and was really pulling for him to be in the final match of the tournament (Gallagher vs Metalik would be the final match if I had any say or influence). Although he was unsuccessful advancing to the quarter finals, I have no doubt this won’t be the last time we’ll be seeing Gallagher in WWE. This brings me to my next statement that Jack Gallagher vs Akira Towaza was my choice for last night’s match of the evening! Brian Kenderick vs Tony Nese was the equivalent of Cedric Alexander vs Kota Ibushi’s match last week; they displayed nothing but passion and determination, giving it their absolute all in the squared circle. However, Gallagher vs Towaza had me completely engrossed on every move, had me on the edge of my seat to the point where I was falling off the couch and biting my fingernails in suspense (figuratively, not literally. I find that habit to be very gross).
