What does it mean when 205 Live comes to the Thunderdome? Probably not all that much as last week’s show was pretty much nothing. That’s what happens when you fall back on the same wrestlers who didn’t work in the first place and still don’t now that more time has passed. Maybe they can go with some of the good stuff this time so let’s get to it.

Opening sequence.

Drake Maverick vs. Tehuti Miles

Hold on though as Miles wants to make sure that his shiny fanny pack is placed in the corner before heading outside. After taking his time combing his hair, Miles comes back in for a lockup so he can take Drake down. Maverick goes after him in the corner so Miles hides in the ropes and stops to comb his hair. That earns him a dropkick to the floor and the beating is on, with Gulak suggesting that his former boss get him.

Miles manages to send Maverick back first into the post for two and we hit the chinlock. Maverick reverses and grabs some rollups for two each as the pace picks up. Miles can’t get a Boston crab but he can hit a clothesline. That means the arrogance can start up again and Maverick slugs away. A running forearm into the bulldog drops Miles again and the top rope elbow connects. The Underdog finishes Miles at 7:45.

Result: Drake Maverick b. Tehuti Miles – Underdog (7:45)

Ex-Boss Time:

Jake Atlas vs. Tony Nese

They lock up to start with Nese grabbing a waistlock. That’s switched into an armbar but Atlas reverses into a headlock on the mat. Nese fights up and takes him into a corner, only to be armdragged out of another corner, setting up a dropkick. We hit the cravate on Nese but he reverses a headlock into a belly to back suplex. Nese goes with the neck crank, followed by a spinning kick to Atlas’ seated face for two.

Back up and Atlas hits a forearm out of the corner and a springboard Blockbuster gives him his own two. Nese kicks him in the head to block a sunset flip and the Lionsault is good for another near fall. They slug it out and Nese is backdropped to the floor, setting up a suicide dive. Back in and Nese hides from the cartwheel DDT but stops to yell at Gulak, allowing Atlas to grab a rollup for the pin at 10:36.

Result: Jake Atlas b. Tony Nese – Rollup (10:36)

That isn’t nice:

Post match Nese jumps him again and hits the Running Nese (with a camera angle showing that it hit Atlas in the arm). With Atlas down, Nese picks up the 205 Live cover on the announcers’ table and says this show is nothing without him to end the show.
