Last week, Mike Kanellis confronted Drake Maverick and goaded Maverick into attacking him.
Drake Maverick says that as GM of 205 Live, his own actions last week were uncalled for. But as a man, his actions were justified. Now Mike Kanellis has an opportunity to earn a Cruiserweight Title match, but first he has to beat Drake Maverick. Maverick and Kanellis will fight next week in an unsanctioned match.

Kalisto & Gran Metalik w/ Lince Dorado vs Humberto Carrillo & Raul Mendoza
(referee: DA Brewer)
Result: Humberto Carrillo pins Gran Metalik after a twisting corkscrew splash
Great match. These teams were very evenly matched as far as their styles go. This was very fast-paced with a lot of dives, counters, and kicks. This was a ton of fun to watch, and every man in the ring stood out.
The Singh Brothers are angry that Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick have their Bollywood award, so they challenge Tozawa and Kendrick to a tag match for next week.
A look at Isaiah “Swerve” Scott.
Oney Lorcan vs Tony Isner
(referee: Jessika Carr)
Result: Oney Lorcan wins via pinfall after a half and half suplex
Squash. Lorcan beat Isner up.
Drew Gulak isn’t surprised that no one from the 205 Live locker room stepped up last week. So now, Gulak will face a man from his past, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott. Gulak helped train Scott, but Scott has a lot more to learn.
Isaiah “Swerve” Scott vs Drew Gulak (Cruiserweight Champ)
(referee: Darryl Sharma)
Result: Drew Gulak wins via pinfall after the Cyclone Crash
Great match. Gulak and Scott were evenly matched at first, but a punch from Scott changed the complexion of the match. For one thing, it dropped Gulak. At the same time though, the punch hurt Scott’s own hand so much that he was feeling the effects of the punch for the rest of the match. Whenever Scott got Gulak in trouble, all Gulak had to do was go after Scott’s hand. That was a huge opening for Gulak which he absolutely capitalized on.
This was another good show. The first and last matches were both highly entertaining.
Match of the Night
Lucha House Party vs Carrillo & Mendoza
As good as the main event was, I think I might have had more fun with the opener. They were very different matches, but I think seeing the team of Carrillo and Mendoza back together pushed this one over the top for me.
