Ariya Daivari def. KAlisto
I love Nigel McGuinness on commentary, but he was way too excited for this. Based off how he called the finish, you'd think it was the main event of WrestleMania. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but it was a bit too much here. Kalisto put in an excellent performance, but Daivari was boring as always. It didn't help that this lasted way longer than it should have. With Daivari's victory, he continues to successfully play mind games with The Lucha House Party.
Humberto Carrillo def. Oney Lorcan in a WWE Cruiserweight Championship No. 1 Contender's Match
The commentators acknowledged how Carrillo lost to Lorcan when they first went one-on-one five months ago and that this was his chance at redemption. Although both guys are babyfaces (and the crowd unfortunately wasn't engaged in the action much at all), this was an incredibly entertaining outing. Lorcan already got two shots at the WWE Cruiserweight Championship and failed, so Carrillo advancing to Clash of Champions to compete for the gold makes perfect sense, not to mention how he has history with Drew Gulak from earlier this year.
Gentleman Jack Gallagher vs. The Brian Kendrick was originally advertised for this edition of 205 Live, but it was bumped due to Gallagher not being "medically cleared" apparently. Regardless, this was another enjoyable episode with a simple and straightforward format. Kalisto vs. Daivari was only barely above average, but the main event was excellent and confirmed a new match for the Clash of Champions card.
