Drake Maverick battles Tony Nese in Interim NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament action

Drake Maverick and Tony Nese will be in must-win situations when they face off tonight in an Interim NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament Group A matchup.

Both are desperately in need of a victory after starting off 0-1 last week. Nese was knocked off by Kushida, while Maverick lost to Jake Atlas.

While Atlas showed great sportsmanship and respect while catching up with Maverick after their bout, The Premier Athlete has made it clear he feels no sympathy for Maverick.

Will Maverick bounce back, or will Nese take another step toward becoming a two-time Cruiserweight Champion? Find out tonight on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network.
