The Lucha House Party def. The Singh Brothers
I guess this means The Singh Brothers are officially members of the 205 Live roster once again. They actually wrestled on the show's pilot back in November 2016 and were immediately pulled from TV because they weren't believed to be ready yet by officials. They've been Jinder Mahal's whipping boys for so long that it was difficult to take them seriously, but this was a well-wrestled affair and it was nice that they were able to have a competitive contest with Lucha House Party's Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado. That said, the outcome was never in doubt.
Mike Kanellis Attacked The Brian Kendrick
It was never said who Kendrick was supposed to be facing here, as Kanellis attacked him on the ramp before he even made it to the ring. This was in retaliation to Kendrick helping Akira Tozawa ambush Kanellis backstage last week, and being the good friend he is, it didn't take Tozwawa long at all to help out Kendrick here. This set up Tozawa vs. Kanellis in a No Disqualification match for next week's show.
WWE Cruiserweight champion Tony Nese def. Drew Gulak (Non-title)
I liked how these two played up their history in a video package that kicked off the show. Gulak mentioned how he has gotten the better of Nese every time they've faced off except for when they met in the latest WWE Cruiserweight Championship No. 1 Contender's Tournament. As always, they worked wonderfully together and built to an exciting final stretch. This was a good win for Nese as he prepares to defend his title against Ariya Daivari soon.
The 205 Live roster is so small at this point that, as I've been saying for weeks, it's in desperate need of an influx of new talent. The Singh Brothers weren't exactly who I had in mind, but it's a start. Their debut was somewhat noteworthy, but this show was only really worth watching for the enjoyable main event. The Tozawa-Kanellis storyline was successfully progressed as well, so all in all, this was a rock solid show.
