Ever-Rise def. Leon Ruff and Adrian Alanis
I'm confused, are Ever-Rise supposed to be a Cruiserweight tag team? They've competed on 205 Live before, but I'd personally rather see them picking up wins over on NXT because their tag division desperately needs new blood. I guess it's better than nothing and I'm glad they're finally getting showcased. Unfortunately, this wasn't the most exciting squash match and didn't leave me overly impressed with Ever-Rise, even though I'm well aware they're a talented tandem.
Isiah "Swerve" Scott, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch def. Tehuti Miles, Jack Gallagher and Tony Nese
Lorcan and Burch have been busy with Miles in recent weeks, while Scott has had his hands full with Gallagher and Nese. Thus, this was a perfectly logical six-man tag team main event for this show. It was nice that Miles got to hang with the stars of 205 Live before falling short to Scott in the end. It was a well-wrestled albeit average match until they picked up the pace in the final minute or two.
The introduction of Ever-Rise is appreciated, even though I think they'd be better suited on NXT. Their match on this show wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but at least they're starting to be built up. As for the main event, I feel like we don't see many multi-man matches on 205 Live these days, so that was a treat. It was far from must-see, but it did progress two different feuds simultaneously and featured some enjoyable in-ring action. Hopefully we see new NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar appear on the program eventually.
