The Brian Kendrick and Gentleman Jack Gallagher def. Kalisto and Lince Dorado
The Lucha House Party tend to have very enjoyable matches regardless of who their opponents are and this was no exception as they worked well with the duo of Kendrick and Gallagher. They kept the pace consistent throughout and all four men had solid showings. Drew Gulak ultimately interfered to aid Kendrick and Gallagher to victory, so I assume this means they'll have an alliance going forward and will eventually meet Lucha House Party in six-man tag team action.
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander def. Buddy Murphy
I'm not sure why, but there were still people questioning Murphy's in-ring abilities coming into this contest. Hopefully the outstanding outing he had here will shut those naysayers up, because he shined as much as Alexander did in this thrilling matchup. They went all out in the second half and had the crowd behind them every step of the way, which of course is rare for 205 Live matches these days. The nearfalls were incredibly well done and that final stretch was simply fantastic. Hats off to both men for one of, if not the best Cruiserweight Championship match in the history of the revived division.
They can't do it every week, but I loved the two-match layout for this week's episode, as the opener was entertaining and then the championship main event took up a significant chunk of time and delivered big time. Seriously, seek out Alexander vs. Murphy because it was a brilliant bout and by far the Match of the Week for WWE. As a result, this was an above-average edition of 205 Live and a great hour of wrestling.
