TJP def. Akira Tozawa
I wouldn't be surprised if there were some people who didn't even realize TJP was gone. His last televised appearance was in early October 2017 on 205 Live, and with the brand set to tour in a few weeks, they need all the star power they can get. This was a very well-wrestled match that the crowd couldn't have cared less about, sadly, but because their chemistry is so solid, I hope they're set to feud going forward and this wasn't the last we'll see of them against each other.
Gentleman Jack Gallagher Attacked Hideo Itami
Gallagher was seeking redemption for Itami injuring his tag team partner The Brian Kendrick last week on Raw, even though he faced him on 205 Live last Tuesday and lost. Thankfully, they didn't do the exact same match here and instead they filmed an angle with Gallagher attacking Itami, generating heel heat in the process. This is a fine little feud for Itami before he eventually chases the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
Cedric Alexander and Goldust def. Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari
Speaking of rematches, this was no different than the Raw match these four had on Monday night, other than how it was slightly longer. Goldust mixing it up with the Cruiserweights is a nice change of pace and seemingly breaks down that barrier within the division, but what purpose did this really serve other than keeping Alexander busy until Enzo Amore returns from his illness so he can defend the WWE Cruiserweight Championship? This was a very lifeless main event.
If you weren't the slightest bit invested in 205 Live last summer, it is in infinitely worse shape now because there is not one person that could be considered over. As a result, most of the matches mean nothing, no matter how good some of them might be. This edition of 205 Live was no exception as the audience sat on their hands the whole time and nothing exciting happened at all. To say this show needs an overhaul would be a massive understatement.
