Drew Gulak def. Akira Tozawa
Watching this match actually made me sad knowing the battles they had over the Cruiserweight Championship a few years ago and how far they've fallen since then. On the bright side, because they're two of the biggest losers on 205 Live (as far as their win-loss records go), I actually didn't know who would win. It was the quality contest you'd expect from them and I was happy they had the chance to go at it one last time before Gulak departs for SmackDown starting this Friday.
#AskGSM is a weekly Q&A video where I, Graham "GSM" Matthews, answer fan questions from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in regards to the world of wrestling. Nothing is off limits, and this week's edition touches upon a variety of topics including:
Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis Attacked NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams
Gargano hasn't been featured on NXT TV hardly at all since the wedding of Dexter Lumis and Indi Hartwell. It felt like there wasn't a spot for him in NXT 2.0, but I'm totally fine with him going back to being a babyface, the role that suits him best. Now he all he needs is his old entrance music and he's golden. This was a great segment that set the stage for Gargano and Lumis vs. Hayes and Williams and established Hayes' first challenger to the championship. I'm very much on-board with Gargano vs. Hayes as that sounds like a banger.
Jeremiah Plunkett def. Heartthrob Jaden
Plunkett has primarily been positioned as an enhancement guy on the show, so this afforded him a chance to pick up a rare singles win. He's perfectly fine, but I don't think viewers haven't been given a real reason to care about him up to this point. Thus, I found myself more impressed by Jaden, who had more of an aura about him. The match was solid. Unless Plunkett is going to be involved in something meaningful going forward, I'm not sure what purpose this was supposed to serve.
