It’s the post Draft show and I can’t imagine much of anything is going to change very much around this show. That might not be the best thing in the world, but 205 Live isn’t exactly the top priority around here. I’m having to strain to remember what happened last week, which isn’t a good sign for any show. Let’s get to it.
Ariya Daivari vs. Jake Atlas
Daivari does seem to be in better shape and starts jabbing away. Atlas knocks him into the corner and they’re on the floor in a hurry. Back in and a quick neckbreaker over the middle rope puts Atlas in trouble again. A chest first whip into the corner sets up a chinlock on Atlas, with Daivari slamming him head first into the mat. Atlas fights up and they slug it out until Daivari grabs a layout reverse DDT.
A regular DDT gives Daivari two more and he punches Atlas down a few more times. Atlas comes out of the corner with a hard forearm and there’s a running dropkick. The running pump kick in the corner gives Atlas two but Daivari grabs another neckbreaker. The Persian Lion splash only gets two though and Daivari is shocked. Atlas hits another pump kick to put him on the floor and there’s the suicide dive…but Tony Nese comes in to deck Atlas for the DQ at 9:21.
Result: Jake Atlas b. Ariya Daivari via DQ when Tony Nese interfered (9:21)
We’ll come back to this:
Post match Nese leaves and Daivari smiles, setting up the hammerlock lariat to lay Atlas out again.
We look back at Brian Kendrick beating Ashante Adonis a few times but Adonis keeps learning.
The Singh Brothers are coming back but this time, it’s the Bollywood Boyz.

Brian Kendrick vs. Ashante Adonis
Trilogy match time and commentary casually mentions that this is the 200th episode. Adonis’ headlock doesn’t work so well but a dropkick puts Kendrick down on the ropes. A Cactus Clothesline puts both of them outside and it’s Kendrick sending him into the barricade. The Russian legsweep sends Adonis into the barricade again and a leg lariat gets two back inside.
The armbar goes on for a bit, followed by a bunch of forearms to put Kendrick down in the corner. A high crossbody into a DDT gives Adonis two, followed by a spinebuster for the same. Kendrick is back with four straight big boots to set up the Captain’s Hook but Adonis rolls out. Adonis hits a low superkick and the Long Kiss Goodnight (superkick) finishes Kendrick at 8:27.
Result: Ashante Adonis b. Brian Kendrick – Long Kiss Goodnight (8:27)
The battle continues:
They shake hands to end the show.
