August Grey def. Ariya Daivari
August Grey is still a stupid name and will probably always be stupid, but that's probably because I'm just not used to it yet. On the bright side, he's held his own against everyone he's stepped in the ring with so far on 205 Live, including Daivari. It's well documented that I couldn't care less about Daivari, but this was a pretty fun opener, largely thanks to Grey. I'm glad he went over as 205 Live should be focused on building up new talent and Grey fits that bill. Daivari doesn't have a ton to offer whereas sky is the limit for Grey.
Curt Stallion def. Raul Mendoza
Stallion earned himself a shot at the NXT Cruiserweight Championship two weeks ago, so it made perfect sense for him to go up against Mendoza here. They produced a very well-wrestled main event as expected with both guys looking great. Stallion winning was the right call and I continue to hope that Stallion vs. Santos Escobar for the title will be added the NXT TakeOver: WarGames IV card for next Sunday.
This week's edition of 205 Live featured two above-average matches and both featured the correct outcomes. Grey and Stallion have been a breath of fresh air for this show and I appreciate that both are involved in actual storylines at the moment. What the hell happened to Mansoor, by the way? At any rate, this was a super solid show and one that I enjoyed, aside from that dumb Bollywood Boyz promo. I would be content if those guys never appeared on the program again. Otherwise, 205 Live is in good shape right now.
