Isiah "Swerve" Scott vs. Lio Rush Ended in a No Contest; Scott and Rush def. The Singh Brothers
Scott vs. Rush had plenty of potential to be a barn burner of a bout and it started out exciting enough, but then The Singh Brothers had to crash the contest and turned it into a tag team match. Why is 205 Live so insistent of featuring The Singh Brothers on every episode this show? Their gimmick is atrocious and they're beyond bland in the ring. Scott and Rush managed to make this passable and went over as they should have. Hopefully a rematch between Scott and Rush isn't far off.
Ariya Daivari def. Jeff Brooks
Much like The Singh Brothers, I have no clue why Davari appears every episode of 205 Live outside of the Cruiserweight division being as depleted as it is. He has very few redeeming qualities and his matches are rarely ever enjoyable. This was yet another example of that. Daivari beat the hell out of Brooks in quick fashion, but I still can't bring myself to care about him in the slightest.
Tyler Breeze def. Tony Nese
I'm honestly surprised it took Breeze this long to wrestle on 205 Live. It's a good idea for the time being while Fandango recovers from an injury. Unfortunately, this crowd couldn't have cared less about his appearance here as they sat on their hands for a majority of the match. It was a solid albeit disappointing main event. There wasn't any sense of urgency about it whatsoever and it felt like it would never end.
205 Live continues to suffer from a lack of direction. It's nice they're bringing in fresh faces like Scott and Breeze to make up for everyone who left, but their matches aren't as entertaining as they could be due to the in-ring limitations the show has. The Singh Brothers and Daivari being constants on this show instantly kills any enthusiasm I have for it. The painfully mediocre main event didn't help matters, making this edition of 205 Live easily skippable.
