PLAY BY PLAY

Drake Maverick recaps the 100th episode of 205 Live!

He applauds the “fantastic Falls Count Anywhere” between Mustafa Ali and Hideo Itami. Their rivalry was put to rest with the insane 450 splash from the Heart of the Cruiserweight Division. However, Maverick hopes episode 101 surpasses even that.

The Man with a Plan and Extraordinary Gentlemen used to be friends and tag team partners, but after a brutal betrayal, neither man will show the other mercy. The bad blood is undeniable, and these two might do anything and everything possible to win. Then in the main event, both Mustafa Ali and Tony Nese will be rewarded for their recently impressive victories. The winner moves on to face the Cruiserweight Champion, Buddy Murphy, for the title! The Premier Athlete looks to prove himself worthy at Ali’s expense, but the Beacon of Light wants one more shot at the title. However, is Ali in any shape to go the distance? Or is there more to being the Heart of the Division than just the body?

 

THE Brian Kendrick VS Jack Gallagher w/ Drew Gulak!

The Man with a Plan founded the Ungentle Men’s Club along side Gallagher months ago, and they both decided to join the Philly Fury in his campaign for a #Better205Live. However, it would seem Gulak made himself the leader of their alliance, and says Kendrick has grown too soft in his old age to hang with them anymore. They brutally beat down Kendrick as they kicked him out of the club, and he made them pay for it when he helped Akira Tozawa of all people. Can Kendrick continue to get even with Gallagher? Or is Gulak being ringside going to be an x-factor?

The bell rings and Kendrick keeps his cool as he stares down Gallagher. Gulak joins commentary to wish them a Happy Halloween. Gallagher points a finger at Kendrick, so Kendrick slaps it away. Gallagher then slaps Kendrick, so Kendrick fires off forearms! The brawl is on and Kendrick puts Gallagher on the ropes. The referee counts and Kendrick backs off, but then Gallagher deflects his boot and bails out. Fans boo, but Kendrick rocks Gallagher with a baseball slide! Kendrick goes out and fetches Gallagher, but Gulak distracts him by saying “You lost your edge!” Speaking of edge, Gallagher drives Kendrick into the apron edge! Gallagher puts Kendrick in, snap suplexes and covers, TWO! Gallagher keeps on Kendrick with European Uppercuts.

Kendrick shoves him away but Gallagher comes back with body shots. Gallagher whips Kendrick corner to corner hard! Gallagher toys with Kendrick, then snapmares him into the arm surfboard. Fans rally and Kendrick gets up. Gallagher throws him down by his hair, then basement dropkicks Kendrick. He drags Kendrick up for a backbreaker, covers, TWO! Fans rally for Kendrick but Gallagher drags him up. Gulak claims that he and Gallagher have an unbreakable bond over technical mat wrestling, and beating people up. But Kendrick does the beating as he forearms Gallagher back. Gallagher knees low, then knees Kendrick down. He drops an elbow, covers, TWO! Gallagher keeps his cool as he drags Kendrick up for haymakers. Gallagher throws more hands but fans boo and jeer.

Kendrick eggs Gallagher on. This is about no mercy, so he wants Gallagher to show no mercy! Gallagher kicks Kendrick again, then again! Kendrick still drags himself up, and fans are on his side. Gallagher scowls, but runs into a back elbow! Kendrick boots Gallagher, then dodges him to rock him with a right! And toss him with a back drop! Kendrick gets to ropes while Gallagher scowls more. Gallagher staggers over but Kendrick counter forearms him. Kendrick gets him again, then again, then again! Gallagher headbutts low, runs, but into the calf kick! Cover, TWO! Kendrick keeps his cool as he stalks Gallagher. He goes for the takedown but Gallagher holds ropes. Kendrick lets off, to Tiger Suplex! TWO, into the Captain’s Hook!

Gallagher flails and reaches, and his leg gets the ropebreak. Gulak is stone silent as Gallagher gets to the apron. Gallagher shoulders in then hotshots Kendrick. Gallagher slingshots for the capture and sleeper hold! He has body scissors, but Kendrick gets a ropebreak now. Kendrick rolls away but Gallagher runs in. Gallagher misses the dropkick, but denies Sliced Bread. SUPERKICK from Kendrick! Gulak starts to approach the ring, but Akira Tozawa takes him out with a spin kick! Kendrick hits Sliced Bread! Cover, Kendrick wins!

Winner: THE Brian Kendrick, by pinfall

The Stamina Monster returns the favor and the Man with a Plan scores a victory! Will this new alliance of strange bedfellows be enough to stop the cruel winter? Or will G&G still bring about their vision for Cruiserweight wrestling?

 

Drake Maverick meets with Cedric Alexander.

The 205 Live GM appreciates the Soul of 205 Live appearing, as Maverick realizes he owes him an explanation. Alexander would like one, as to why his 181-day championship reign doesn’t get him an automatic rematch. Maverick promises that contractual rematch will happen, when Maverick feels Alexander is ready. As GM, Maverick wants to prepare the best matches. But including that first loss to Murphy, Alexander is suddenly on a three-match losing streak. Alexander is not at the same level he once was, so it’d be unfair to the rest of the roster for Alexander to automatically get his rematch. It’d be unfair to Alexander, too, in a way. Maverick has faith Alexander will snap his streak and start winning again. And he knows Alexander is disappointed, but he hopes he also understands.

Alexander admits he’s fallen off and promises to get back on track. And the moment he does, he wants his title rematch. Maverick shakes his hand to make the deal. How long will it take the Age of Alexander to rise from the ashes? Who will be champion when he comes back for his throne?

 

Gran Metalik w/ Lucha House Party VS ??

The King of the Ropes was ringside to support his amigos in their Monday Night Raw debut, but now it’s his turn on Halloween Wednesday to keep the trio rolling. Metalik calls TJP out as a coward, TJP talks week in and week out about LHP but he’s not man enough to fight them. TJP replied on social media that he doesn’t need to beat Metalik again, because he did that back in the Cruiserweight Classic a couple years ago. That’s why Metalik instead faces ?? tonight. Will Metalik stay focused when his mind is on the FilAm Flash?

Metalik and ?? circle, and ?? kicks low. ?? forearms Metalik then whips, but Metalik handsprings. ?? dodges but Metalik starts up the “Lucha! Lucha!” chants. Metalik dodges then chops ??, then whips. ?? reverses but runs into Metalik’s boot. Metalik runs, Sling-Dog! He keeps moving, climbing up top and walking the tightrope, for the springboard elbow! Cover, Metalik wins!

Winner: Gran Metalik, by pinfall

Metalik makes quick work of his opponent tonight, but he doesn’t get to celebrate long as TJP attacks from behind! TJP knocks Metalik down and YANKS OFF THE MASK! Lince and Kalisto are too slow, TJP gets away with his third trophy! Fans boot while Kalisto and Lince are livid. Will Lucha House Party ever get proper payback for such despicably disrespectful behavior?

 

Backstage interview with Buddy Murphy.

The Cruiserweight Juggernaut had a meeting with Drake Maverick just now, and it pertains to next week’s WWE UK appearances. 205 Live will be in Manchester, and Murphy had an idea. He is the best in the Cruiserweight Division, so he wanted a match with one of the UK Division’s best, “to show the world what happens when you come face to face the Juggernaut.” Mark Andrews will be his opponent, and Murphy promises to annihilate him. But what are Murphy’s thoughts on Tony Nese winning a title match opportunity tonight? Murphy says that’s none of our business. Ali and Nese battle up next, will the results reveal his true feelings?

 

Backstage interview with Mr. & Mrs. Kanellis.

Mike was successful in defeating Lince Dorado in his 205 Live in-ring debut, it was with some controversy given Maria incited a fight. The First Lady wants Dasha Fuentes to be careful how she “spins” the story. Maria takes the mic and takes over the interview, because “I’m better at it anyways.” She asks her husband how it feels to be “the greatest Cruiserweight of all 205 Live.” Well he didn’t expect that question, but if he had to say-

Oh, TJP runs in, still on the run from the Lucha House Party. He’s glad to see Mike & Maria, but they’re not happy to see him. Well sorry, but as the first ever (New Era) Cruiserweight Champion, he just thought he’d give them a quick tour, right now. Maria tells TJP to shut up, because she knows what he’s doing. TJP pushed things too far and now he’s crawling to Mike for help. He admits that’s true. That’s fine, because when opportunity knocks, they answer. The three of them head out to talk business, is this a new alliance of egos?

 

WWE Cruiserweight Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Mustafa Ali VS Tony Nese!

With the Soul of 205 Live’s rematch being put on standby, the Heart and the Abs of 205 Live have a golden opportunity. Ali is no stranger to Murphy’s might, but Nese is Buddy’s fellow Body Guy. Will Murphy be happy when Ali loses? Or be upset that his friend won?

The bell rings and the two circle. Nese goes right at the taped ribs as he tackles Ali to a corner and rams his shoulder in. Fans boo as Nese flexes over Ali. Ali stands but Nese back kicks the ribs. Ali clutches his gut but Nese is on him with a toss into a corner. Nese soaks up the heat, then runs in, but Ali manages to go up and over. Ali keeps moving, dodges Nese and just manages to hurdle him to hit a huricanrana! Nese bails out but comes back, only for Ali to dropkick him down. Ali then slingshots out, but Nese catches him for a Fall Away Slam! Ali hits the ramp and those ribs hurt even more now. The referee checks on Ali while keeping Nese away. Nese flexes and soaks up the heat while Ali refuses to quit.

Nese brings Ali up and trophy lifts him, before tossing him at the barriers! The ref counts and it passes 5 before Nese puts Ali back in the ring. Nese covers, TWO! Nese kicks Ali in the ribs, then puts on the rear bearhug. Ali endures the squeeze as fans rally up. Ali feeds off the energy and throws punches. Nese shoves Ali and gives him a knee to the ribs. Ali chops Nese back, but Nese whips him for another knee. Then whips again for a big kitchen sink knee! Cover, TWO! Nese kicks Ali while he’s down again, and Ali goes to ropes. Nese stomps Ali, but fans continue to rally. The ref backs Nese off the stomps, but Nese whips Ali. Ali rolls Nese up, TWO!

Nese kicks low again, then back suplexes. Ali makes it a crossbody cover, TWO! Ali gets moving, springboard DDT but Nese catches it to make it a Northern Lights! Bridge cover, TWO! Nese keeps his cool as he looms over Ali. He sits Ali up for a swift kick to the back. Ali writhes but Nese sits him up for more kicks. Nese puts the body scissor squeeze on and Ali endures. Fans continue to rally, but Nese gives Ali a swift chop to the chest. Nese trash talks Ali, but Ali refuses to quit. Ali pries at the feet and makes it a cover, TWO! Ali is free but runs into a back kick. Nese drags Ali up, for another stiff back kick. Nese soaks up the heat then whips Ali for a flapjack toss! Cover, TWO!

Nese grows frustrated with Ali, but then taunts him. He shouts at Ali, “You want more?!” Nese brings Ali over to a corner, and drags him up by his hair. Ali trips Nese and Nese hits buckles! Both men are down but fans build to a rally. They both stand, and Ali throws body shots. Ali gets Nese in a corner with more body shots, then runs in. Nese back elbows, then running hotshots Ali! Nese hurries back up, triangle moonsault misses! Ali leaps for a sunset flip, roll through to a sit-out powerbomb! But he can’t make the cover from the pain in his ribs! Nese is spared while both men are down. Ali gets up first but flounders to a corner. Nese is up and runs in, but Ali dodges. Ali roundhouses Nese back, then slingshots in for the facebuster!

Nese flounders, Ali clotheslines him out! But Ali won’t stop, he builds speed to FLY! Direct hit as Ali throws caution and his body to the wind! A ring count begins but hits 5 before either man sits up. Ali stands at 7 and puts Nese in at 8. Ali climbs up top, and leaps for a crossbody! He bounces off the cover but comes back, TWO! Both men are down, catching their breath. Ali brings Nese up but Nese lifts in the fireman’s carry. Ali slips out but Nese goes Matrix to then back kick, knee lift and roundhouse, but Ali ducks to front kick and SUPERKICK, and then SUPERKICK to the back! Cover, TWO!! Nese lives but both men are exhausted. Fans declare “This is Awesome!” as Ali drags himself up. Ali then drags Nese to a drop zone, and climbs. Ali aims, but Nese trips him up!

Nese has Ali sideways for the top shelf knee into fireman’s carry. Ali escapes, rolls Nese, TWO! Springboard tornado DDT! Ali crawls to the cover, TWO!! Nese still lives, but Ali still wants it. Fans rally up for Ali as he gets himself to a corner. Ali climbs again, but Nese hits a SHORYUKEN! Nese hops up to join Ali, and has the fireman’s carry. SUPER GUTBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!! Ali still lives! Nese is furious, and argues with the ref, but two is two. Nese runs in at Ali for a mudhole stomp and clubbing forearms. The ref backs Nese off, but Ali throws a CHOP! Nese still gives Ali knees, then rips off the rib tape. The referee reprimands Nese but Nese doesn’t stop pulling the tape and kicking the ribs. Fans boo and jeer as Nese shows no mercy to Ali. Ali gets a jackknife cover, Ali wins!!

Winner: Mustafa Ali, by pinfall; new #1 contender to the Cruiserweight Championship

Nese let his anger boil over, and it cost him! Now the Beacon of Light will have another shot at the title while reviving his rivalry with Buddy Murphy. But with his body as beat up as it is, will he have a chance at sweeping the Body Guys?

Nese is furious, and he doesn’t look like he’ll leave Ali alone. So here comes Cedric Alexander! The Soul protects the Heart and runs Nese off. Alexander helps Ali up, but just when it looked like he was going to turn on him, he raises Ali’s hand. Ali and Alexander hug as Alexander encourages his good friend to go for the gold. And speaking of, the current champion in Buddy Murphy comes out to stare his new challenger down. Murphy holds his title up high, but will it be his title for much longer?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A great episode of 205 Live, though clearly they didn’t worry about making it Halloween themed despite being aired on Halloween. Kendrick VS Gallagher was pretty good, and I’m glad to see Tozawa understands Kendrick is on his side now. Tozawa watching out for Kendrick was a good move, and I’m pretty sure this blow-off will be a tag match. Hopefully it’ll be something No Disqualification based so that they all can show that “no mercy” aspect this story has become centered around. I’m glad to see that TJP and Kanellis are forming an alliance, too, even if it’s out of convenience. Plus, more teams means more of a reason to make a tag division official. I’m thinking that’s something that can keep 205 Live afloat since it just still isn’t gaining ground with general fans.

Ali VS Nese was another amazing main event. Ali really sold those bad ribs, and Nese did a great job focusing on them with his two squeeze submissions. As I said before, it makes more sense for Ali to win so that we don’t threaten a Body Guys break-up so soon. I liked the turn tease, Alexander could’ve easily gotten Ali in the Lumbar Check there. But Alexander stands by his friend the same as Murphy, and I hope we get a tag match of Body Guys VS Heart & Soul before what I assume is a Survivor Series Cruiserweight Championship match. Those two teams should also be part of the not yet official tag division, because both would make for some top contenders day one.

My Score: 8.5/10
