6. WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match
Neville (c) vs. Akira Tozawa
Slightly less predictable is this Cruiserweight bout. There’s a reason no championship match cracked the bottom few, adding the belt into the mix means anything can happen. Creative has been known to get antsy with a long reigning champion or decide that someone has earned a run with the crown. It isn’t out of the question for that to happen to Tozawa, especially with Titus on his side.
Despite the corniness of Titus Brand, and the fact that it’s the slightest bit of a knock off of Lucha Underground’s Famous B, it’s working. For the first time since getting called up last year after WrestleMania, Apollo Cruise is finally doing something. Tozawa is hardly in that same pit, but the Cruiserweight division, on the whole, is struggling. Titus adds to his clout and makes him stand out from the blurry division.
However, Neville is a white hot champion. He’s so over as a brutal, nasty heel. His work recently has been top notch, he disposed of Austin Aries, TJP, and Jack Gallagher all in convincing fashion. It seems unlikely that they would cut that momentum short and give it to Tozawa instead. Not impossible, just not very likely at all.
