WCW Cruiserweight Title Tournament Quarter Final
Alex Wright vs. Jushin Thunder Liger
It’s a energetic Cruiserweight bout that had high-flying and fast-paced moves.
Japanese superstar and former WCW Light Heavyweight champion Jushin Thunder Liger really stretches Alex Wright out and forces him to sell for a highly entertaining dynamic throughout the match. Liger catches alot of Wright’s mistakes during his “fast paced” offense, but “Das Wunderkind” is resilient and able to avoid being pinned. Wright attempts a Body Scissors and Liger actually stands out of them and is able to flip it over into a amazing looking Boston Crab. Wright breaks the hold and ends up going on a hot streak and surprises Liger with the Springboard Back Crossbody and has it ended.
Alex Wright defeated Jushin Thunder Liger in a Tournament Quarter Final match in 10:10 by pinfall with a Springboard Back Crossbody out of nowhere.
Liger is disappointed at the surprising loss, but shake hands with Alex Wrigth as a sign of respect.
