Ariya Daivari def. Anthony Greene; Curt Stallion def. Daivari by Disqualification
Both Greene and Stallion were regulars in EVOLVE for a few years and were just signed to developmental deals by WWE this past week, so it was nice to see them appear on 205 Live so quickly. I was also happy that neither of them were completely squashed. Tony Nese attacking Stallion was what caused the disqualification, though Stallion didn't win the $10,000 because he didn't pin or submit Daivari. Daivari will never not bore me, but if he's going to be on the show, I'm glad he's at least working with some fresh faces.
Isiah "Swerve" Scott def. The Brian Kendrick
As seen on Wednesday's NXT, Scott still finds himself in hot pursuit of Santos Escobar's NXT Cruiserweight Championship, so there was virtually no chance of Kendrick winning here. Then again, he's always been more of a utility guy on 205 Live helping to get other guys over and it's a role he plays very well, so I'm not complaining. He and Scott had a top-notch main event despite paling in comparison to Scott's match with Escobar at NXT TakeOver 31. This helps him build his case for another shot at the strap.
The "Daivari Dinero Division" stuff does absolutely nothing for me as Daivari continues to bog 205 Live down after so many years of being on the program, but it was cool that the concept led to the debuts of Greene and Stallion on this episode and I'd love for them to be regulars in the Cruiserweight division going forward. Plus, Scott and Kendrick had an enjoyable main event, so I found this edition of 205 Live to be slightly better than usual.
