Jake Atlas def. Ashante "Thee" Adonis
Unless I missed something, there was no storyline setup for this match, so it felt like a random battle of babyfaces. That said, this was a very fun match. Both guys have potential, though I'd still like to see some character development from the both of them. They can go in the ring and have quality matches, but casual viewers don't have any reason to care about them otherwise. This was an enjoyable opener.
August Grey def. Tony Nese
Just when you think Grey's rivalry with Nese and Ariya Daivari is over, it just keeps going. Hey, I'm not complaining since it's better than Grey being directionless. It seems like the story is that Daivari wants Grey to cheat to win, but Grey prefers to do it the right way. He looked like an idiot for not wanting to win by count-out, especially since that cost him the victory against Mansoor a few weeks ago, but at least he won in this case. This was the usual entertaining encounter from these two.
No original matches aired on last week's episode. Rather, it featured some of the best Cruiserweight Championship matches from the last few years, I guess because nothing new could be taped before NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver. At any rate, I really, really hope Kushida winning the NXT Cruiserweight Championship on Wednesday (which was recapped on this show) means the champion will have more of a presence on the show going forward because the title has basically been nonexistent on 205 Live for the last year. Both bouts on this week's episode were well-wrestled and you'll get no complaints out of me about that.
