Possible WWE Cruiserweight Classic qualifier at EVOLVE 63

As you already know because you hung out in the live thread or at least read our recap of last night (June 10)’s EVOLVE 62 show, Tony Nese had an emotional reaction to his latest loss - this time to Fred Yehi.

Nese got on the microphone and discussed the last year, and his plan to turn things around. You can see his promo in WWNLive’s recap video of the event (and if you rewind, get some Ethan Carter III & Drew Galloway post-show antics):

Set to compete in the “Cruiserweight Classic Flashpoint” with Johnny Gargano, Drew Gulak, TJP & Lince Dorado, Nese is the only man in the elimination match who hasn’t already qualified for WWE’s upcoming tournament. Well, apparently NXT General Manager William Regal liked Tony’s moxie, because according to EVOLVE officials, he’s made the bout into a qualifier for Nese.

If he can win the match, he’s in the Cruiserweight Classic. If he can’t, he’s not. They’re long odds, but if Nese wants to turn his career around, he’s got his shot.

Get caught up on everything else you can expect from tonight’s EVOLVE 63 show from Orlando with our preview. And watch the show, which also features EC3’s open challenge, with us in the live thread!
