“Hail to the Crown” by CFO$ featuring From Ashes to New
The Brian Kendrick w/ Gentleman Jack Gallagher vs Akira Tozawa
(referee: Mike Chioda)
Result: Akira Tozawa wins via pinfall after a diving senton
Good match. It felt a little short considering some of the matches they’ve had in the past, but I still liked it.
Kayla Braxton welcomes Tony Nese and Buddy Murphy. Murphy intends to send a message to all of 205 Live tonight. He and Nese are done playing around.
Hideo Itami vs Michael Blaise
(referee: Danilo Anfibio)
Result: The match ends in a No Contest when Mustafa Ali challenges Hideo Itami to a fight.
This was another of Itami’s squash matches where he continues to beat on his opponent until the referee has to stop the match. This time, before the referee could call for the bell, Mustafa Ali came out and entered the ring. Needless to say, this wasn’t much of a match, but it was an interesting segment regardless.
Cedric Alexander says Drew Gulak exposed himself as a spineless hypocrite last week.
The Lucha House Party gets ready with a chant and a dance.
Buddy Murphy w/ Tony Nese vs Kalisto w/ Gran Metlik, Lince Dorado
(referee: Jason Ayers)
Result: Buddy Murphy wins via pinfall after Murphy’s Law
Great match. These two continue to bring new and innovative action to the 205 Live ring. This match was at times brutal and breathtaking, often at the same time. Great stuff.
The main event dominated the show, but I did like seeing Tozawa get a good win and Mustafa Ali coming back for Hideo Itami.
Match of the Night
Buddy Murphy vs Kalisto
Both these guys put on a great show every time they’re in the ring.
