Tony Nese Dethrones Buddy Murphy To Win WWE Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania 35

Tony Nese has climbed to the top of the 205 Live mountain.

The WrestleMania 35 Kickoff show opened with Buddy Murphy and Tony Nese clashing for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Nese and Murphy were once allies but when Nese inched closer to the championship, Murphy separated himself and today at WrestleMania, it was Nese who was able to get the best of Buddy Murphy and end "The Best Kept Secret's" eight-month reign as Cruiserweight Champion.

Buddy Murphy first captured the Cruiserweight Title at WWE Super Show-Down in his home-country of Australia in October and after eight months, that reign has come to an end.

In an interview to promote his WrestleMania match, Murphy stated that he wanted to cement his legacy as Cruiserweight Champion but "The Premiere Athlete" had other plans as he kick-started his legacy as Cruiserweight Champion today.
