The start of WWE 205 Live opened with Austin Aries announcing Tony Nese will be unable to compete in tonight’s Fatal 5 Way match due to injury, and a replacement competitor will be decided tonight.
Aries announced Nese was injured last night on RAW, and Mustafa Ali will face Ariya Daivari for Nese’s spot in the Fatal 5 Way match later in the show. Ali defeated Davairi by pinfall with an inverted 450 splash in tonight’s opening match to move on to the Fatal 5 Way match.
The winner of the Fatal 5 Way match, which also features Cedric Alexander, Noam Dar, Jack Gallagher and TJ Perkins, will move on to face Cruiserweight Champion Neville at the WWE Fastlane pay-per-view next month.
