Gran Metalik def. TJP
These two had a quality contest last week and while this wasn't on the level of their Cruiserweight Classic clash from 2016, it was as enjoyable as their last encounter. It had a simple story with TJP attempting to avenge his loss from last week and once again, he was unsuccessful. He didn't have a meltdown afterward the same way he did last week, though Dasha Fuentes did catch him crying backstage, which was weird. Meanwhile, I'm happy Metalik is winning matches for a change.
Goldust def. Drew Gulak, Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match
Goldust "interviewing" Cedric Alexander about his upcoming opportunity at the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at the Royal Rumble was totally lifeless, and Enzo Amore's retort wasn't much better. I honestly zoned out during their back-and-forth on the mic. The subsequent match between Goldust and The Zo Train was fine while it lasted yet completely pointless, making The Zo Train/the entire Cruiserweight division look extremely week. No wonder crowds couldn't care less about this show.
Due to the debut of WWE Mixed Match Challenge, 205 Live was cut short this week by 25 minutes or so, and as a result, the show felt even more inconsequential than usual. Then again, keeping the show as short as possible might be for the best because it tends to drag anyway and most crowds sit on their hands for the taping. Outside of the entertaining outing between TJP and Metalik, there was nothing of note worth watching from this edition of 205 Live.
