We continue the waiting around for Curt Stallions Cruiserweight Title shot, which has been set up for months now. I’m not sure what they’re waiting on, but at this point they need to have something special planned for the whole thing. You never can tell if that is going to play a role in this week’s show but maybe they’ll surprise us. Let’s get to it.
Ashante Adonis vs. Ariya Daivari
Adonis’ headlock doesn’t last long as Daivari knees him in the ribs and hits a dropkick. Daivari chops away in the corner but it just seems to annoy Adonis, who hammers away in the corner. A spinebuster gives Adonis two and there’s a dropkick to put Daivari on the floor. Back in and a missed charge in the corner allows Daivari to wrap the leg around the post.
Daivari kicks him in the face but the Figure Four attempt is countered into a small package for two. Adonis manages to knock Daivari outside for a breather and it’s time to strike away back inside. A DDT rocks Daivari and it’s a flapjack to do it again. The knee gives out to break up the Long Kiss Goodnight though and Daivari slaps on the Figure Four. That’s turned over after a bit of a struggle so Daivari grabs the Rock Bottom for two. The hammerlock lariat misses and the Long Kiss Goodnight finishes Daivari at 8:48.
Result: Ashante Adonis b. Ariya Daivari – Long Kiss Goodnight (8:48)
William Regal announces that 205 Live will be hosting some Dusty Classic matches.
We look at Santos Escobar successfully defending the Cruiserweight Title against Gran Metalik on Wednesday.
August Grey/Curt Stallion vs. Bollywood Boyz
The Boyz now have a Go Pro camera. Grey cranks on Sunil’s arm to start but has to kick out of an early crucifix attempt. Grey’s rollup gets two and the armdrag into the armbar keeps Sunil in trouble. Stallion comes in off a blind tag to hit a dropkick and it’s off to Sunil as well. The Boyz are cleared out in a hurry but it’s back to Sunil vs. Grey. This time it’s Grey being knocked outside for a cheap shot so the Boyz can take over.
The chinlock goes on back inside, followed by a jawbreaker into a middle rope bulldog. We hit the chinlock again but Sunil lets go so he can knock Stallion off the apron. The Bollywood Blast connects with Stallion having to make a save. Grey avoids a charge in the corner though and now it’s Stallion coming in to clean house. Everything breaks down and Stallion dives onto Samir on the floor. Back in and the running headbutt drops Sunil and Grey’s run the ropes Unprettier finishes at 9:33.
Result: August Grey/Curt Stallion b. Bollywood Boyz – Top rope Unprettier to Sunil (9:33)
