Ashante "Thee" Adonis def. Ariya Daivari
Daivari is coming off a lengthy feud with August Grey, who cheated to beat him last week. It sure looked like that was done to build to a rematch, and while we may still get one, it was odd that he lost to Adonis here. Hey, I'm not complaining, but Daivari was being heavily protected up until last week, so him losing to Adonis of all people was certainly a surprise. Nothing about the bout stood out as special, but it was decent for what it was.
Jake Atlas def. Tony Nese
I felt like I had seen this match a bunch of times before, so upon looking it up, I discovered that this actually marked their sixth one-on-one encounter since last year. That's wild, especially for two people who have never had a formal feud as far as I can remember. They have really good chemistry together and this was another quality contest from them, but it's clear WWE has no idea what to do with either of them and that's why they keep getting paired up in random matches. Nese is talented, but Atlas is the fresher face and thus him winning was the right call.
I was a little surprised by how light on storyline advancement this edition of 205 Live was after a string of shows that were storyline-focused. I'm not sure if Daivari vs. Grey is over, but The Bollywood Boyz and Ever-Rise were nowhere to be seen and I assume Mansoor vs. Curt Stallion has been put on hold because Stallion is reportedly hurt. That said, while this wasn't a standout show from that standpoint, both bouts were enjoyable and featured the correct outcomes, so I can't complaint too much.
