WWE 205 Live results (June 27, 2017): Neville responds to Tozawa

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.

No matches have been announced for tonight, but’s preview does indicate which angles will be a focus of the June 27 episode from San Diego.

Since returning from injury, Cedric Alexander has tried to make it clear to his ex-girlfriend Alicia Fox and her new beau, Noam Dar, that he’s done with both of them, but Foxy can’t let go - even while at home nursing a neck injury sustained at Extreme Rules. Her instructions have left Ced frustrated and may have gotten the Scottish Supernova in hot water when he inadvertantly put Ariya Daivari’s $15,000 suitcase in a Dayton, Ohio river last week. What does Alicia want from Alexander?

And Akira Tozawa looks to have official signed with Titus O’Neil’s brand, the recently renamed Titus Worldwide, and it’s earned him a title shot at Great Balls of Fire. How will the King of the Cruiserweights retort?

In addition to those, we’ll be looking for more on the “affiliation” between the injured Austin Aries and Jack Gallagher, and Drew Gulak’s campaign for a “Better 205 Live”.

We'll post match results here, and most importantly, 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!

- We start with flashback of Titus Worldwide’s announcement of Tozawa vs. Neville for Great Balls of Fire

- Corey Graves and Vic Joseph inform us we’re getting a Neville address, Alexander vs. Daivari and Jack Gallagher in action

- Dasha Fuentes interviews Jack, who will face The Brian Kendrick tonight. Gallagher made a mistake letting his guard down last week against Tony Nese, he won’t make that mistake against notorious villain Kendrick tonight.

- After Gallagher enters, his music plays again. It’s not a production screw-up, though. It’s Kendrick in a suit, fake moustache and an umbrella. He says Jack is an embarrassment, just like England. The worst part is Gallagher doesn’t even know he’s just a cheap William Regal knock-off. The bell rings and TBK will wrestle in his costume.

- Jack Gallagher def. The Brian Kendrick via disqualification when Kendrick attacks him with an umbrella, breaks that over his back, throws it into the crowd and gets another one

- Flashback to Mustafa Ali beating Drew Gulak before Dasha talks to Drew. He’s glad she showed that clip, because it motivated him to keep sending the message of “Safe and Sound, Feet on the Ground”. Ali rolls up to ask why Gulak hates high fliers. Is it because it’s unsafe, or is it because aerial moves are something “Drew just can’t do?”

- Mustafa Ali def. Drew Gulak via pinfall with a crucifix roll-up after Gulak (shakily) climbed to the top turnbuckle and missed a Superfly Splash

- In the locker room, Noam Dar tries to apologize to Daivari for throwing his $15K luggage in the water, and to blame Cedric for it. Ariya says that is peasant money, and Dar is relieved he doesn’t have to pay him back because he’s broke. His phone bill is killing him because Alicia wants to FaceTime constantly. She calls, and Daivari takes the phone and throws it against the wall, telling Noam he still owes him.

- Ariya Daivari def. Cedric Alexander via pinfall following a hammerlock lariat (aided by Dar charging onto the apron and getting forearmed by Ced, who then turned into the finish)

- Dar climbs in the ring to beat down Alexander after the bell and then demands a microphone. He sends a message to Alicia, who he’d love to be on FaceTime with right now. The Cedric Alexander chapter is over, and now they can move on and focus on their love. “Yo Alicia! We did it”

- Neville sneers his way down to the ring for a promo. In two weeks, he defends his Cruiserweight title against another so-called challenger. But this time, he believes his opponent has been mislead. The WWE Universe has convinced the “wonderkid” Akira Tozawa he has a chance at defeating him (when the crowd chants “AH”, Neville dismisses it as cute). He’s also not concerned with the “white noise” that is Titus O’Neil. He knows Tozawa likes to give lessons, but the King likes to give warnings - don’t show up at Great Balls of Fire, because if he steps in the ring, he’ll get a slap of reality that he’s not at the Neville Level. If Akira doesn’t believe him, ask any of the men he’s already beaten.

- Tozawa appears, and when Neville asks what he wants, and if he understands English, Akira only responds “AH” over and over as the crowd chants along. A frustrated champ charges, but he gets taken down and put out of the ring by the #1 contender. Neville backs up the ramp as Tozawa gives him a few more “AH”s and stares him down.
