WWE 205 Live results (June 26, 2018): Lucha House Party vs. Kendrick, Gulak & Gallagher

Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of WWE 205 Live as it airs on WWE Network.

This week, seeing as he’s submitted all three members of Lucha House Party in one-on-one action, the clear next step if to put Drew Gulak and his allies The Brian Kendick and Gentleman Jack Gallagher into a match with Kalisto, Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik. But the dueling trios have already been in a traditional trios showdown (won by LHP two weeks back), so General Manager DRAKE MAVERICK is making this six-man an elimination match.

DM THE GM also welcomes his newest signee, Lio Rush, to the ring in Ontario, CA on June 26. He’ll also have to deal with TJP’s continued demands to be better utilized or sent elsewhere, and decide if Hideo Itami’s big win over Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy last Tuesday has earned him a shot at Cedric Alexander’s Cruiserweight Championship.

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 at 10PM Eastern!

Enjoy the show!

- DRAKE MAVERICK runs down tonight’s card, then it’s opening theme time and Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson welcome us to Cali.

- Akira Tozawa def. Tony Nese via pinfall following a top-rope senton

All Tozawa early, but when Nese heads to the floor he gathers himself and catches the former champ when he tries for a dive. After driving him into the apron and stairs, the heel heat stretch is on. The tide shifts back to Akira, but Nese rolls out before he can hit the senton from the top. A dive connects on the outside, but Tony comes back and gets a nearfall on a gutbuster. They trade strikes, and Nese sets up for a superplex, but Tozawa fights it off and sends him headfirst to the mat. The finish follow.

- Recap of Hideo Itami’s big win last week. We then see Cedric Alexander step to DM THE GM to ask when his next title defense will be. MAVERICK says he hasn’t decided, and Cedric says he figures it would be Itami. DRAKE doesn’t want to “reward bad behavior” (and uses TJP’s recent antics as an example of something that won’t work with him), but when Alexander explains a chance to face a legend like Hideo would allow him to establish his own legacy, DM says he’ll take it under advisement.

- Lio Rush def. Dewey James via pinfall following the Final Hour (frog splash)

Rush takes his time getting to the ring, and even after the bell stalls while removing all his jewelry. When finally ready, Lio cheapshots James then evades him by running the ropes and lights Dewey up with kicks. He blasts him off the apron, a few more kicks when James gets back in the ring, and that’s it.

- Dasha Fuentes interviews Rush in the ring. He says the future of the cruiserweight division is here. He can do things in the ring that the guys in the locker room can only dream of doing. They’re good, but they’re no Lio Rush - they have no style, presence or finesse. He’s the man of the hour, and 205 Live is going to feel the rush.

- Renee Young catches up with Cedric backstage. She asks about his decision to lobby for Itami. Alexander says he was impressed by Hideo beating Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy, and repeats the same stuff about establishing his reputation as champ. Itami approaches, looks him up and down and talks some trash in Japanese. Alexander says he’ll show him respect, Hideo shoves him and MAVERICK shows up with some guys to separate them!

- Next week’s main event is a no DQ match between Ali and Murphy

- Drew Gulak, The Brian Kendrick and Gentleman Jack Gallagher def. Lucha House Party (Kalisto, Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado) in an elimination tag

Metalik is the first elimination after Gulak grabs him while he runs the ropes, sending him right into a Gallagher head butt

Kendrick is out next, eliminated by Dorado (after being unmasked by Gulak and worked over in the heel’s corner) after a handspring cutter

Dorado taps to the Gu-Lock; he made it to the corner for a tag, but Kendrick snuck in and pulled Kalisto off the apron before it could happen.

Gallagher is pinned after Salida del Sol to make it one-on-one against Gulak

Kalisto is last eliminated with Gu-Lock, which Drew locked in after countering a SDS and going for Kalisto’s mask

- Drew destroys Penelope Gulak (LHP’s pinata mascot)
