The Singh Brothers def. The Lucha House Party
This rematch has been in the works for weeks. It wasn't exactly highly anticipated, but it was fun nonetheless with good showings from both teams. Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik were on offense for a majority of the match, yet it was The Singh Brothers who emerged victorious. This marked their first truly credible victory in WWE, so let's see if they can build on it or if it'll simply lead to The Lucha House winning the rubber matchup.
The Brian KEndrick def. Russ Taylor
Sometimes I forget Kendrick is still on 205 Live, just because it's been a while since he was last involved in a meaningful program on the show. He is talented though and can lend a lot to whoever he works with, especially if they're an up-and-comer. This was a fairly standard squash match, though Taylor did have the early advantage over Kendrick. Based off the pre-match vignette, Kendrick will be paired off with Noam Dar in a rivalry soon.
Oney Lorcan def. Ariya daivari by Disqualification
Daivari cost Lorcan the win in last week's Fatal 4-Way main event after Lorcan beat Daivari one-on-one a few weeks earlier. I got excited when Lorcan took the fight to Daivari immediately after the bell rang, but Daivari's boring rest holds killed the flow for me. Lorcan was able to make things interesting again down the stretch before Daivari intentionally got himself disqualified. The post-match attack put more heat on Daivari, but personally, I couldn't care less about the guy.
While this wasn't as strong as last week's excellent effort (one that got most of the wrestling world talking), this was still a solid show. Lorcan and Daivari furthered their feud in the main event, Kendrick got back on track with a win, and The Singh Brothers avenged their loss to Lucha House Party in the opener. In addition to Gentleman Jack Gallagher challenging Mike Kanellis to a match on next week's show, we also found out that it will indeed be a Triple Threat for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship between Tony Nese, Akira Tozawa and Drew Gulak at Stomping Grounds. The promos from the three men that aired at the end of the episode hyping it up were well done. It will be interesting to see if Drake Maverick winning the 24/7 Championship on SmackDown Live will affect 205 Live at all or if it'll continue to be business as usual.
