Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of WWE 205 Live in its regular Tuesday night at 10PM Eastern time slot on WWE Network.
They may not have gotten the main event slot on Raw for a fourth straight week, but the cruiserweights have two (as of now) non-Kickoff matches on the next pay-per-view (PPV)!
Heading into an attempt to regain his title at TLC, Enzo Amore has recruited a who’s who of the division’s villainy. In Seattle tonight, he’ll partner up with Ariya Daivari to try and continue getting the upperhand on champion Kalisto and his ally, Mustafa Ali.
Building to 205 Live’s other match this Sunday in Minneapolis, Rich Swann and Gentleman Jack Gallagher will represent for their teammates (Cedric Alexander and The Brian Kendrick, respectively) before their PPV tag. I guess TJP and his issues with Swann really are done after TJ was swept in last week’s two-out-of-three falls match...
Hopefully, Drew Gulak and his POWERPOINT PRESENTATION will get some time to reveal a few slides and continue the feud with Akira Tozawa on Tuesday night, too.
We'll post match results and plot developments here. And this gives you Cagesiders a dedicated place to rave and/or bitch about whatever goes down on the WWE’s cruiserweight showcase - while it’s being broadcast!
Enjoy the show!
- Recap of the scene from Raw last night which revealed Enzo’s new allies and set-up our tag main event
- Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness welcome us and lay out our two announced matches, then the former champ is here to do the deal.
- Enzo Amore asks Seattle if they can smell that? It’s smells like TEAM spirit. He shouts out his team (Noam Dar, Drew Gulak, Davairi Dinero) and says they’re making Starbucks, and he’s not talking about cappucinno. When he’s done with Kalisto on Sunday, he’s gonna be in the hospital (probably the children’s hospital). He can settle in, hook up his wifi, pull up the WWE Network and watch The Zo Show on Tuesday. Amore talks up how he saved 205 Live, and says the only thing the company ever did for him was hand him the microphone. His charisma and talent made him, not the fans. He runs down the fans as not having his gifts, but says they have no choice but to accept him. Zo says he’s living on the edge, because if you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up space. And he’s never seen anyone take up space, and be so small as Kalisto...
- That brings out the champ to shut Zo up. After eating a kick, Amore slides out of the ring, waiting to fight later.
- Video package on the history of Cedric Alexander against The Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher, including The Gentleman’s turn
- During Rich Swann’s entrance, he and Cedric get an inset interview about how Gallagher and Kendrick don’t have the numbers any more.
- Rich Swann (with Cedric Alexander) def. Jack Gallagher (with The Brian Kendrick) via disqualification; a good match that eventually broke down into a four-man melee, the DQ came after the heels sent first Cedric then Swann headfirst into the barricade. The faces rebounded and Rich almost hit Gallagher with the Phoenix Splash, but Kendrick saved him.
- Drew Gulak is out, and he feels like he’s our father. And in creating his Drewtopia, he’s trying to shelter us from top rope dives and unnecessary chanting. Since some of us aren’t following his example, he was forced to take action (rolls footage of Gulak attacking Akira Tozawa last Tuesday, leaving him with a damaged layrnx and swollen vocal chords). What he just showed us was tough love, because people like Tozawa and his annoying “AH” chant don’t listen. When fans chant, Gulak says they need tough love, just like he gave to Akira, making his chants and interruptions impotent. If Tozawa had listened, he’d have learned about proposal nine in the POWERPOINT PRESENTATION... “no defying authority”. We call these proposals, but they’re more than that. They’re rules, and despite what kids may have heard on their Beastie Boys and Fresh Prince albums, rules do matter and parents do understand. On Sunday, our father will educate all of us, as on the TLC pre-show, we’ll get a special championship edition of all the slides in Gulak’s POWERPOINT PRESENTATION!
- Enzo out with a mic, but he hands it to Daivari for some Persian smacktalk. Amore takes back the stick and says he understood Ariya, because they speak the same language - money. In the ring, there’s two dudes, but only one word to describe them... S-A-W-F-T
- Kalisto and Mustafa Ali def. Enzo Amore and Ariya Daivari via pinfall (Kalisto on Zo following a SDS); the champ isn’t done with Amore afterwards, diving onto both men and laying into the Certified G with strikes until officials pull him off. We close on a shocked/incensed challenger staring from the ramp as the luchador champ celebrates in the ring.
