Tony Nese def. Tyler Breeze
While I don't recall these two having any sort of bad blood with each other, it was still a super solid match with both guys having good performances. The action was entertaining and they made the most of the time they had. Nese has been on a losing streak for a while, so his win here was a pleasant surprise. I don't expect him to be contending for the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship any time soon, but at least it's a step in the right direction for him.
Tehuti Miles def. Danny Burch
Miles has been utilized as an enhancement talent for NXT, 205 Live and the main roster since WWE started filming shows at the Performance Center, but I have noticed him getting more shine than your average Performance Center recruit between his unique look and the fact he's been getting an entrance. I fully expected this to be a short and sweet showcase win for Burch, but it turned out to be fairly competitive. Not only that, but Miles scored the huge upset victory. Props to 205 Live for trying to switch things up and make a new name, though it's very possible Burch will avenge the loss next week and that'll be it for Miles.
Personally, I would have swapped the match order, but I can see why they ended with Miles vs. Burch because the outcome was very surprising. The wrestling was enjoyable on the whole this week, even though there really isn't a reason for any of these matches to be happening at this point. It's interesting that the most important stuff with the Cruiserweights is happening on NXT, not 205 Live. That said, the sub-30-minute format for 205 Live nowadays is refreshing and makes it an easy watch.
