Josh Briggs def. Damon Kemp
I'm more and more impressed by Kemp every time I see him in action. I had no idea he was the brother of Gable Steveson and his legitimate wrestling background makes him stand out. He's an impressive athlete but obviously still has a long way to go. As for Briggs, he's the better wrestler of him and Brooks Jensen, so I enjoyed this hoss fight while it lasted with Kemp getting to show some skills before eating defeat.
Valentina Feroz and Yulisa Leon def. Amari Miller and Lash Legend
I don't know if it was such a wise idea to put so many inexperienced people in one match. Legend's matches have been very hit or miss so far, Miller is mediocre at best, and Feroz and Leon are still improving. It was a fairly basic bout, but it actually exceeded my expectations because there weren't any terribly botched spots and everyone was kept limited. Feroz and Leon are an actual team, so them winning made sense. With Miller and Legend teasing tension, expect them to face off one of these weeks on 205 Live.
Joe Gacy def. Draco Anthony
I'm curious what's next for Gacy since it doesn't look he and Harland are entering the men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic after all. Anthony won his first 205 Live match last week, but he didn't get as lucky this week. This was essentially an extended squash with Anthony scoring minimal offense and Gacy dominating otherwise. This wasn't much of a "main event," but Gacy was the biggest name on the show compared to everything else, so that's probably why it went on last.
We got the debut of a new play-by-play commentators on this show, and while he's a fine replacement for Vic Joseph, when the hell are we getting a full rebrand of 205 Live? The name has got to go. At any rate, this was a solid show by recent 205 Live standards. Every match offered something a little different and the tag match in the middle in particular was better than I thought it would be, so I can't complain.
