Lio Rush cemented his return to the black and gold brand by winning the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on Wednesday night’s edition of NXT on USA Network.

Rush picked up the win after landing a springboard stunner and The Final Hour to defeat defending champion Drew Gulak in the opening match. NXT GM William Regal presented Lio with the title afterward and Gulak interrupted the moment to show respect to the new champ.

“The Man Of The Hour” earned his title shot defeating Oney Lorcan last month in his first match on WWE TV since April.
