Two weeks ago, we saw Cameron Grimes take Keith Lee to the limit in a match for the NXT North American Championship. While he would be unsuccessful, he proved his status as a star for NXT, and just needs to get a few wins to get back on track. On this week, he would be faced by former Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese, the man who is the measuring stick for the 205 Live brand.
Cameron Grimes Fights Hard For Another Shot
The match would start with some grappling as Nese would force Grimes into the corner, with the referee separating them. Nese would take him down by the waist only to be locked into a headlock where Grimes would attack the eyes of Nese. More chain wrestling would see Nese lock in an armbar, showing that Cruiserweights do more than high flying. Grimes would break free but an arm drag that would make Ricky Steamboat blush into another armbar would shut him right back down.
The next time he would escape, a flapjack into the top rope would put the momentum in the favor of Grimes. Grimes would ground Nese for a short while, digging his fingers right into the jaw and neck of the Premiere Athlete. Once they got back to a vertical base, Nese would fight back with some hard strikes only to be snuffed out with a vicious clothesline for a near fall.
Grimes would attempt a powerbomb which would be countered by Nese into a lightning quick spin kick to the face. More smart strikes would give Nese the advantage, allowing him to hit a springboard moonsault for a near fall of his own. A huge forearm from Grimes would be used to counter the patented running knee in the corner from Nese, allowing Grimes to hit the Cave In double stomp for the win.
Will He Be Back In The North American Title Hunt?
Having knocked off a former Cruiserweight Champion after taking Keith Lee to the limit, Grimes should be back in the hunt along with men like Damien Priest, Killian Dain and Dominic Dijakovic. He might be smaller than all those men, but Grimes is going to prove that size doesn’t matter. Should Cameron Grimes get another shot? Let us know in the comment section down below.
