Isiah "Swerve" Scott def. Joaquin Wilde
Between this and his win over Oney Lorcan last week, Scott seems to be getting back on the right track following his recent loss to Austin Theory on NXT. He's an awesome athlete, but I still feel we need to know more about him. I don't think he and Wilde have ever faced off in WWE before, so this felt fresh and was a well-wrestled opener. As undefined as Scott is, at least he isn't obnoxious as Wilde, who is almost insufferable with the dumb DJ noises and over-the-top attire.
Tony Nese def. Oney Lorcan
These two have had more than a handful of matches against each other over the last year, so while this was nothing new, their chemistry is always excellent and this was another enjoyable encounter from them. There was nothing at stake, mind you, but they delivered to the best of their ability. Nese winning in clean fashion was genuinely surprising considering the current NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin is a heel and Lorcan would be a fun opponent for him.
I'm honestly shocked WWE is continuing to tape 205 Live at the Performance Center, especially this past week when they were on a time crunch and had to get everything for the next two weeks in the can before the stay-at-home policy went into effect. This was a fine episode but hardly worth going out of your way to see, especially since neither match had any significance whatsoever. I felt like I was watching Main Event but with Cruiserweights. Both bouts were solid, but needless to say, 205 Live is a far cry from what it once was.
