- The show opens with a recap of Tony Nese’s WrestleMania title victory.
- We’re informed that we will in fact be getting a WrestleMania title rematch tonight.
- Humberto Carrillo over Jack Gallagher by disqualification when Drew Gulak pushes him off the top turnbuckle.
- Post-match, Gulak puts the boots to Carrillo to teach him a lesson! But Gallagher’s seen enough and grabs Drew’s hand mid-punch before laying him out with a headbutt!
- Buddy Murphy gets a promo where he says he’s going to win his title back.
- Tony Nese also gets a promo, where he says WrestleMania was the greatest day of his life and he’s fought for this dream for over a decade, so Murphy can say what he wants, but he’ll never take this from him.
- Oney Lorcan has a meeting with Drake Maverick when Cedric Alexander rolls up. He says this has to be about their rematch so he figured he’s save Drake from having two meetings. Maverick confirms the rematch and tells him he can go, but Oney asks if Alexander knows why Lorcan came back to 205 Live. The reason is that they say to be the man, you have to beat the man, and that’s what he’s going to do next week.
- Tony Nese (c) over Buddy Murphy by pinfall with a hesitation Running Nese to retain the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
- That’s the show, folks.
