It’s time for a special show as we are at the 205th episode of 205 Live. This time around that means we are going to be seeing a five way match to crown a new #1 contender to the Cruiserweight Title. That should mean we have a long and well put together match which won’t likely change all that much. Let’s get to it.
We open with a history of the show and the cruiserweight division, which has done rather well at various time. Granted it’s the absolute bottom of the barrel but the matches have been good. We also get some quick looks at some of the more important cruiserweights, including Brian Kendrick, Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, Akira Tozawa, Ariya Daivari and the Bollywood Boyz.
Next up is a recap of the current originals vs. newcomers story, setting up tonight’s five way.
Ariya Daivari vs. Tony Nese vs. Curt Stallion vs. Ashante Adonis vs. August Grey
One fall to a finish for the future title shot. Adonis drops to the floor to start and Nese and Daivari beat the other two down. Stallion and Grey fight the two of them off and have a staredown of their own, with Grey grabbing a quick rollup for two. Daivari and Nese run back in to jump them, which is enough to bring Adonis back in to clean house. That doesn’t last long and it’s Adonis being sent outside as well, only to have Grey break up another showdown.
Stallion strikes Grey down but it’s Adonis coming back in for a dropkick. A hard whip into the corner rocks Grey so Stallion stomps Adonis down, only to have Daivari and Nese jump both of them again. Stallion gets suplexed down but Grey slips out of one and hits a belly to back for two on Nese. Grey avoids Nese’s Lionsault but Daivari pulls him outside and the villains take turns sending Grey face first into the announcers’ table. The beating heads back inside, including Daivari intercepting Adonis.
Nese grabs the chinlock on Grey until Adonis grabs a sleeper on Nese for the break. Daivari clears the ring until Stallion sneaks up from behind with a German suplex and a DDT. Nese makes the save until Daivari comes back in to Rock Bottom Adonis. Daivari isn’t done as he sends Grey into the steps and hits the Persian Lion splash. Stallion is right back in to cover Daivari for two but it’s Nese coming in with a 450 to Stallion for two of his own.
Grey gets back up….and here are the Bollywood Boyz to beat him down. Now it’s Ever Rise coming in to hammer on Adonis and Grey as well, as Nese and Daivari seem to have paid for all of these people. Adonis, Stallion and Grey get together to fight them off so Daivari wraps a chain around his fist and knocks Adonis out. Grey makes another save so Nese makes one of his own. Nese catches Stallion on top but he slips out and hits a super reverse Spanish Fly to pin Nese for the title shot at 18:38.
Result: Curt Stallion b. Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari, August Grey and Ashante Adonis – Super reverse Spanish Fly to Nese (18:38)
