Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch def. Ever-Rise
This is a rematch from Wednesday's NXT where Lorcan and Burch squashed Ever-Rise in a matter of minutes. This wasn't much longer, but it was a bit better with Ever-Rise looking good in defeat. I've heard only positive thins about them, so hopefully they're given more chances to shine in the future. As for Lorcan and Burch, it's nice that they're picking up wins again, but they've failed to become tag team champions so many times already that I don't ever see them getting beyond a certain level.
Isiah "Swerve" Scott def. Tyler Breeze
The story was that Scott was frustrated with being bumped from the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament and wasn't his confident self. I'm not sure if he and Breeze have faced each one-on-one before, but they worked well together here and put together a fun match with Scott showing more aggression than usual. My only nitpick is that they didn't get more time, but what we got was entertaining. Scott's new finisher (unless he's been using that for a while now) isn't anything special, though.
In between the two aforementioned bouts, this week's Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament matches from NXT were recapped and the Triple Threat between Kushida, Drake Maverick and Jake Atlas was hyped for next week. I'm still surprised none of those matchups have taken place on 205 Live to give this show some extra content, but oh well. As for this episode, it was decent on the whole with two quality matches and the right people winning. It was a harmless, sub-30-minute show.
