“Hail to the Crown” by CFO$ featuring From Ashes to New
Fatal Four Way Match
Tyler Bate vs TJP vs Kenny Williams vs Kalisto
(referee: Charles Robinson)
Result: Tyler Bate pins TJP with a Tyler Driver ’97
Very good match. This was a whole lot of fun. The early parts of the match contained a lot of unique multiple-man scenarios, including TJP getting all three of his opponents in a submission hold at the same time. After a certain point, the pace picked up considerably, and it led to a fast and fun finish. There were a couple of moments when it seemed like things didn’t go exactly as they wanted, but those moments were minor and quickly covered.
I think TJP stood out to me as being particularly fun to watch in this one. He had some really great moves and transitions. He would flow from one hold into another and it was fun watching the transitions.
A package video of Buddy Murphy. He wants to be on top of 205 Live, and he’s willing to do anything to take that spot.
Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali are joined by Flash Morgan Webster. Flash is very confident.
Dasha Fuentes asks Drew Gulak, Joseph Conners, and James Drake how they will be able to work together as a team tonight. Gulak put them through some team building exercises, so they should be fine.

Very good match. Great action and lots of very good interactions. It had a fun breakdown towards the end, and the UK guys added something different to the match.
This was a fun one-off show. Nothing really mattered here as far as story lines go, but I liked seeing the UK roster mixed in with the cruiserweights. It was also a good promo for this year’s UK tournament.
Match of the Night
Fatal Four Way
I liked the six man tag as well, but I preferred the four way. It felt more competitive while the six man, at times, felt like more of a showcase of talent rather than competitive match. I also liked the unique scenarios in the four a lot.
