Oney Lorcan def. Chase Parker
This marked the first time we've seen either member of Ever-Rise in singles action on WWE programming. Lorcan and Danny Burch knocked off Ever-Rise in back-to-back bouts on NXT and 205 Live a few weeks ago, so there was some background behind this bout. It was decent for the time given but too short to be anything memorable. Indus Sher showing up afterward and attacking Lorcan and Burch was where the focus was really at and it was an angle that made sense because of what went down with them last week on NXT.
Jake Atlas def. Jack Gallagher
In case you missed it, Gallagher was released from WWE mere minutes before SmackDown aired on FOX because of allegations that came out about him earlier in the day. That makes me think the company didn't have enough time to remove his match from the episode, especially since he isn't mentioned in WWE.com's results of the show and isn't featured in any of the photos, either. At least he lost, so there's that. For whatever it's worth, it was a pretty good match with Atlas showing real potential. I'd love to see more of him on the show going forward.
The well-wrestled main event makes this edition of 205 Live worthwhile, but I can understand some fans feeling uncomfortable watching it in light of recent events. The opening was nothing out of the ordinary whatsoever, but the Indus Sher stuff was a pleasant surprise and should hopefully lead to a match between the two teams on NXT soon. I'm still waiting for Santos Escobar to make an appearance on the show because, you know, he is the NXT Cruiserweight Champion after all.
