Jake Atlas def. Ariya Daivari by Disqualification
A replay aired beforehand of Daivari beating Atlas the last time they clashed. Honestly, I have no recollection of that whatsoever. Maybe it's because it made me mad enough that I decided to wipe it from my memory all together. In all seriousness, this was the best bout I've seen Daivari have since his return. He had a decent showing, but Atlas was who really impressed me here. They were just starting to pick up the pace before the lame interference from Tony Nese. He and Atlas teased feuding at one point, and while I have no issue with that, I wish his attack on Atlas was saved until afterward.
Ashante "Thee" Adonis def. The Brian Kendrick
These two previously faced off in August I believe in a match that was won by Kendrick. The story here was that Adonis was looking to learn from his mistakes and pull out the victory this time around. Sure enough, he did, as he should have. Then again, I somewhat expected that after he helped out Isiah "Swerve" Scott at NXT TakeOver 31, so it's clear the higher-ups see something special in him. He's been improving in recent months, but I just wish we got to hear from him more and be given a real reason to care about him. This was an enjoyable main event, though.
Since 205 Live is associated with the NXT brand, it makes sense for the show to be taped at the Capital Wrestling Center along with NXT. It makes for a much better environment, too. It's also worth noting that this marked the 200th episode of 205 Live, though you would never know because there wasn't anything special about it whatsoever. The NXT Cruiserweight Championship hasn't been defended on the program in ages and the roster has been depleted for some time now. Other than that, this was a solid half-hour of wrestling with two quality matches. I can't complain about getting good wrestling and that's exactly what this show was.
