It’s time to get back to the cruiserweights now that the holiday is over. That could open up a few doors around here, but the biggest story continue to be Curt Stallion moving towards the Cruiserweight Title shot. I’m not sure what that is going to entail or when he is getting the chance, but points for trying someone new. Let’s get to it.
August Grey vs. Ariya Daivari
Tony Nese comes out with Daivari, who says he has this on his own, meaning Tony heads to the back. Daivari takes him into the corner to start and we actually get a clean break. Grey slaps him in the face and grabs a rollup for two. There’s a hurricanrana to keep Daivari in trouble and it’s time for a break on the apron. The break lets Daivari snap Grey’s throat across the top rope and then wrap the leg around the post.
It’s time to work on the leg with some elbows to the knee but Daivari’s trip to the floor earns him a kick into the barricade. Daivari is fine enough to slap on the Figure Four back inside, but he lets it go and opts to kick at the leg some more. The delay lets Grey kick him away and grab a belly to back suplex for a breather.
Daivari bails outside and grabs his chain so Grey hits a suicide dive. A high crossbody into a superkick gets two on Daivari but he’s right back with the Figure Four again. This time it’s broken up and Daivari goes up top, where he has to shove Grey down. The Persian Lion splash gets two and a Rock Bottom is good for the same on Grey. The hammerlock lariat is loaded up but Grey ducks into an Unprettier, complete with running up the corner for the extra impact and the pin at 9:44.
Result: August Grey b. Ariya Daivari – Super Unprettier (9:44)
Legado del Fantasma doesn’t think much of Curt Stallion talking about Santos Escobar so tonight it’s time to learn a lesson.
The Bollywood Boyz don’t think much of Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari losing over and over. Nese and Daivari haven’t asked for their help so come find them when they want lights, camera and Bollywood action.
Curt Stallion vs. Raul Mendoza
Joaquin Wilde is here with Mendoza. Stallion gets taken to the mat in a hurry and Mendoza messes with his hair. A headlock has Stallion in more trouble and there’s a loud chop in the corner. Mendoza hits a missile dropkick for two and he stomps Stallion down to make it worse. The chinlock doesn’t last long so Mendoza goes with a basement dropkick for two instead.
Stallion fights back up and knocks him outside for a suicide dive, followed by a running knee in the corner back inside. A quick DDT out of said corner gets two and there’s a jumping double stomp for the same. Stallion goes up but Mendoza hits a jumping kick to the head to bring him back down. A cradle gives Mendoza two but Stallion snaps off one of his own for the pin at 7:09.
Result: Curt Stallion b. Raul Mendoza – Rollup (7:09)
Post match Wilde comes in to beat Stallion down and it’s the running kick to the face/Russian legsweep combination to leave Stallion laying. Santos Escobar comes out to pose with Legado to end the show.
