Last week saw 205 Live turn into the Ariya Daivari Show and I’m not sure why anyone thought that was going to be their best idea. Thankfully this show has a tendency to change things up almost weekly so there is a good chance that it will be something different this week. Let’s get to it.
Mansoor vs. Ashante Adonis
Adonis takes him down in a hurry to start and throws in an early taunt. That earns Adonis an armbar and you can see the frustration/surprise setting in. Adonis fights up and spins out so Mansoor takes him down with a reverse DDT. Back up and Adonis snaps Mansoor’s throat across the top to put him outside and a neckbreaker gets two. We hit the chinlock for a bit, followed by a flapjack to give Adams two more.
Mansoor jawbreaks his way to freedom from another chinlock and something close to a Vader Bomb gives him a breather. The middle rope bulldog gets two more but Adonis pulls him down into Brian Kendrick’s Captain’s Hook. That’s broken up as well though and Mansoor hits his electric chair into a Death Valley Driver for the pin at 7:57.
Result: Mansoor b. Ashante Adonis – Death Valley Driver (7:57)
The guy has something:

Isaiah Scott vs. Ariya Daivari
Daivari works on the arm to start so Scott takes him down by the leg without much effort. That’s reversed into a headlock but Scott is right back with a quickly broken chinlock. Scott bends then arm back and snaps it down onto the mat for an always painful looking moment. There’s a basement dropkick to put Daivari in the corner and they head outside with Scott hammering away.
As they head back in, Daivari grabs a DDT, setting up a neckbreaker for two. The crossface chickenwing goes on until Scott fights up with an elbow to the face. Scott sends him outside for a kick to the face and the rolling Downward Spiral gets two back inside. Daivari plants him down again though and it’s the Persian Lion splash for his own two. The hammerlock lariat is broken up though and it’s the House Call for the pin at 10:33.
Result: Isaiah Scott b. Ariya Daivari – House Call (10:33)
