We’re still in the middle of both Dusty Classics and that means another match taking up space on this show. That’s still a good idea too, because there is very little that 205 Live is going to be able to do that is anywhere near as important as something pretty big from NXT. Let’s get to it.

We open with a recap of the Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic so far.

Jake Atlas vs. Ariya Daivari vs. August Grey

Daivari takes over to start but Grey sends him outside for a suicide dive. Back in and Grey and Atlas fight over wrist control until Atlas cartwheels out of a hurricanrana attempt. Daivari misses a dive off the top, leaving the other two to keep fighting. Atlas gets knocked down though and Daivari flips Grey off the top onto him for two. With Atlas on the floor, Grey charges into an elbow to the face to give Daivari two more.

Grey gets chinlocked but Atlas comes back in to roll both of them up for two each.  Daivari is back up though and knocks Atlas to the floor. Grey hits a high crossbody on Daivari but Atlas comes back in and everyone is knocked down. Atlas kicks Daivari in the face for two but Daivari is back up to hiptoss Grey into Atlas in the corner.

The Persian Lion splash gets two on Grey and Atlas is back in to hit him with a brainbuster. A dropkick puts Daivari on the floor but Grey is up with a superkick to Atlas. Grey dives onto Daivari and walks into a Stunner from Atlas, followed by the cartwheel DDT. Daivari breaks up the cover and hits Atlas with the chain for the knockout. Back in and the hammerlock lariat gives Daivari the pin on Grey at 10:58.

Result: Ariya Daivari b. August Grey and Jake Atlas – Hammerlock lariat to Grey (10:58)

We see Curt Stallion’s NXT promo about having a rocket attached to his back. Then he was attacked so the title match was off for the night. William Regal came in and yelled at Legado del Fantasma, setting up the match for next week.

Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic First Round: Zoey Stark/Marina Shafir vs. Shotzi Blackheart/Ember Moon

This is Stark’s debut and she starts with Blackheart, who is launched into the corner with some straight power. Moon comes in and it’s a double dropkick for two on Stark, who is already requiring cheating to take her down. It’s off to Shafir, who wrestles Moon down for two and a slam onto Stark’s knees gets two more. Moon kicks away from a cradle but Shafir flips forward to slap her in the face.

You don’t do that to Moon as everything breaks down, with Shotzi hitting a running hip attack to both of them in 619 position. Blackheart’s reverse Sling Blade plants Shafir but Stark gets in a cheap shot from the apron to put her in trouble. Stark comes back in to stomp away and drives some knees into Blackheart’s arm. A reverse t-bone suplex from Shafir sets up Stark’s running knee for two with Moon having to make a save. Shotzi enziguris her way to freedom though and the hot tag brings in Moon. Everything breaks down and Moon ties Stark up in a modified STF for the tap at 8:52.
