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 WWE.com’s preview does indicate which angles will be a focus of the July 4 episode from Phoenix.
And they are familiar ones. One night after viciously forcing Mustafa Ali to tap on Raw, Cruiserweight champion Neville might be sending another message to his Great Balls of Fire Kickoff match challenger, Akira Tozawa.
Plus, Alicia Fox’s return means the long (LOOOOONG) program featuring her, Noam Dar and Cedric Alexander will continue on for at least one more show.
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!
- Titus O’Neil is walking backstage, talking to Akira Tozawa on the phone. He chats up Ariya Daivari (asking if his shirt is swelvet - silk and velvet) and Mustafa Ali (who could be Muhammad Ali with a few more wins), then tells Tozawa he’s heading out to kick 205 Live off right in Phoenix. They practice some “HA” chants, then the theme song plays.
- Corey Graves and Vic Joseph tell us that tonight we’re getting Jack Gallagher vs. Tony Nese and TJP vs. Rich Swann
- Titus is introduced as the founder of Titus Worldwide, and makes his way to the ring slapping hands with fans on his way in. O’Neil has a plexiglass podium with his brand’s logo on it, and pictures of Tozawa and Neville. He hypes the Cruiserweight title match at Balls, saying the champ will be no match for his client.
- Neville interrupts, complimenting Titus on becoming a charismatic leader. But he’s selling a pure fantasy. Saying he’s going to show what happens when a client signs with Titus Worldwide, Neville shows footage of Raw’s main event and Apollo Crews and O’Neil’s destruction at the hands of Braun Strowman (the crowd chants “You’re Not Strowman” at Neville, causing him to pause and tell them “nice”). He says Titus is all about pursuing the dollar, not taking care of his clients. He invites O’Neil to watch his destruction of Lince Dorado from the commentary booth so he will know what awaits Akira at GBOF.
- Neville def. Lince Dorado via submission with Rings of Saturn (while glaring at O’Neil)
- Swann approaches Perkins in the locker room to ask why he requested their match tonight. TJP says Rich wanted to see the guy who won the Cruiserweight Classic, and in the CWC, TJ beat Swann. They agree to see who the better man is in some friendly competition tonight.
- Reminder about The Brian Kendrick’s mocking attack on Gentleman Jack last Tuesday
- Jack Gallagher def. Tony Nese via pinfall following a running dropkick (after Jack refuses to fall for Nese feigning injury again, hitting him with a headbutt as he claimed his knee was hurt)
- Kendrick shows up on the ‘Tron in colonial garb to deliver history lessons about the “nefarious Brits” and their military failures, drawing parallels to Gallagher’s career. He plans to kick Jack out of 205 Live just like his forefathers kicked the English out of America... and this revolution will be televised. Gallagher calls for TBK to come out to the ring, but we eventually go to commercial.
- Replay of the Cedric Alexander’s win and the overall segment with Noam Dar and Alicia Fox from the July 3 Raw
- Dar is being seen by a trainer who tells him he won’t need a neck brace. He says that’s good news, but not as good as having Foxy back. She runs in as he breaks down his plan to claim the Cruiserweight title. She says that’s great, but what about Cedric? Alicia wants them to keep after Alexander until he quits 205 Live (Noam doesn’t seem thrilled with this plan)
- Rich Swann def. TJP via pinfall; after a hard fought, evenly matched bout Swann finally got a three count after a series of pin counters. TJ tried for another hold after the ref’s count, not realizing it was over. He was frustrated, but accepted Swann’s handshake to end the show.
