I’m cautiously optimistic about this show as they have started treating it as something a little more important than filler. That being said, you can only expect so much out of a show supplementing the division that is usually filler for the developmental show. Last week’s show was pretty good though so let’s get to it.
Tehuti Miles vs. Mansoor
Rematch from last week. Miles throws his jacket at Mansoor to start and stomps away in the corner, followed by a heck of a whip into the corner. Mansoor comes back with a backdrop for two and a suplex with a floatover gets two. The chinlock goes on but Miles fights up and dropkicks him to the floor.
Some whips into various things have Mansoor in more trouble and they head back inside. Miles gets two off a neckbreaker and we hit the bodyscissors. A flapjack gives Miles two more but he misses a dropkick and gets caught with the slingshot neckbreaker. The electric chair Death Valley Driver finishes Miles at 7:22.
Result: Mansoor b. Tehuti Miles – Electric chair Death Valley Driver (7:22)
We see the Legado del Fantasma segment from NXT, with the trio talking about wanting to bring back the real lucha libre.
We look at Isaiah Scott and Tony Nese joining forces to take out Ever Rise.
Tony Nese vs. Chase Parker
Matt Martel is here with Parker. Nese throws him down with ease and strikes the double bicep pose to play to his strengths. Some takedowns into an STF and then a reverse Figure Four with his legs (best way I can put it) have Nese even more in control. Martel’s distraction attempt doesn’t work as Parker gets taken down by some legsweeps and kicks to the chest.
The second distraction causes Nese to go outside after Martel, allowing Parker to get in a shot from behind. A bulldog gets two and we hit the armbar. Another bulldog attempt doesn’t work though and Nese is back with the Lionsault for two. Martel tries to interfere again but Nese shrugs it off and kicks Parker in the face for the pin at 6:53.
Result: Tony Nese b. Chase Parker – Kick to the face (6:53)
On his own:
Post match Ever Rise beats Nese down but Isaiah Scott runs in for the save to end the show.
