Humberto Carrillo def. Angel Garza
Carrillo and Garza are legitimately cousins, which would explain why their in-ring chemistry is so strong. Garza has appeared on 205 Live once before in the Captain's Challenge a few weeks ago and killed it once again here. I'd have no problem with him becoming a full-time member of the Cruiserweight division at some point if NXT doesn't have anything for him creatively. They put together a very fun outing and had the crowd with them by the end. There was no mention of Carrillo earning himself another shot at the WWE Cruiserweight Championship with this win, but I assume that's where he's headed.
Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch def. WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak and Tony Nese
Lorcan has been on 205 Live since the start of 2019 and only now is he bringing in his partner from NXT Danny Burch to help him out. I guess the story never called for it until now, and in this case, he was outnumbered by Gulak and Nese, so this match made sense. This was a vast improvement over Lorcan vs. Nese from last week as the action was entertaining, all four guys worked well together, and the crowd came alive at certain points. Burch pinned Nese for the victory, so here's hoping we see more of him on 205 Live in the future.
Lio Rush became the number one contender to the Cruiserweight Championship on last week's NXT but did not appear on this show and only highlights of his win were shown at the beginning. Worse yet, there was no confirmation as to what's happening with 205 Live starting next week. Is it being moved to Fridays after SmackDown Live? Is it being merged with NXT? Is it staying on Tuesday nights somehow? Is it being cancelled? I hate how nothing was made clear, unless I missed something. Otherwise, this was a pretty good show with two quality matches.
