It’s the post Draft edition of the show and that isn’t likely to mean a thing. You never know what to expect around this show, save for cruiserweights, wrestling, and not much of a run time. Hopefully it winds up being another rather easy to watch show, which has tended to be the case over the last few weeks. Let’s get to it.
Here’s Ariya Daivari for the Daivari Dinero Division, meaning he’s facing two men and if either beat him, they get $10,000.
Ariya Daivari vs. Anthony Greene
Greene is from Evolve and is very 80s. Daivari drives him into the corner to start for a slap to the face but another attempt is blocked with some right hands from Greene. A running elbow takes care of that though and Daivari whips him hard into the corner. Daivari stomps him down in the corner but misses a charge in the corner, allowing Greene to get some near falls off a pair of rollups. A hurricanrana gets two more but a spinning high crossbody misses. The hammerlock lariat gives Daivari the pin at 3:22.
Result: Ariya Daivari b. Anthony Greene – Hammerlock lariat (3:22)
Ariya Daivari vs. Curt Stallion
Stallion is from Evolve as well. Daivari jumps him on the entrance but Stallion fights back and they head outside. Stallion gets sent face first into the announcers’ table as Daivari shouts about him wanting the money. Back in the Persian Lion splash gets a few near falls but Stallion is back with a small package for two. A headbutt sends Daivari outside and Stallion hits a dive. Back in and…here’s Tony Nese to knee Stallion in the head for the DQ at 2:48.
Result: Curt Stallion b. Ariya Daivari via DQ when Tony Nese interfered (2:48)
Daivari keeps the money because it wasn’t a pin or submission.
Brian Kendrick vs. Isaiah Scott
They lock up to start with Kendrick going to an early armbar. Scott can’t quite spin out so the armbar stays on for a bit until Scott grabs his own on the mat. Back up and Kendrick forearms away in the corner, only to get caught in a rolling Downward Spiral for two. Kendrick’s arm gets sent into the corner so it’s a hammerlock belly to back suplex to stay on the injury.
Kendrick kicks his way out of an armbar but he has to go to the ropes to escape a cross armbreaker attempt. They head outside with Kendrick sending him head first into the steps to bang up the back/neck a bit. Back in and Scott punches him in the face but misses a charge in the corner. A neckbreaker gives Kendrick two and there’s another one over the middle rope.
Sliced Bread is broken up though and Scott hits a suplex. The middle rope elbow to a seated Kendrick’s back keeps him in trouble but Kendrick sends him to the apron. Another neckbreaker is countered into a backdrop to the floor but Kendrick is fine enough to get a mostly one armed Captain’s Hook back inside. Scott gets up so Kendrick hits Sliced Bread for two. Kendrick takes him up top but Scott flips him down hits him in the arm, and grabs the JML Driver for the pin at 10:14.
Result: Isaiah Scott b. Brian Kendrick – JML Driver (10:14)
Post match Kendrick teases ignoring a handshake but eventually gives one to end the show.
