Mike disrespected the General Manager of 205 Live Drake Maverick and said he wanted to kick his ass the GM had heard enough and brought the fight to his disgruntled employee.

Maverick later accepted Mike’s challenge via social media. Will the two men come to blows again tonight?


Chris’s Grades:

Backstage Promo From Drake Maverick:

Drake has kept his cool long enough and last week when Mike bad-mouthed his wife, he exploded in rage. I am loving this storyline as Drake “the man” is appearing for the first time on 205 Live, but I’m not sure if this is going to help Mike Kanellis at all. After weeks of humiliation from his pregnant wife and losing consecutively, this all feels like another loss for him.

If Mike’s new character is a running joke each passing week, why the hell did he stay in WWE? Seriously though, what’s the big pay-off for this developing and hard to watch storyline?


Lucha House Party (Kalisto and Gran Metalik) VS Humberto Carrillo and Raul Mendoza:

WHAT A MATCH!!! Seriously all four Lucha Libre superstars tore the house down, from counters and unique sequences and high-flying action. This was everything and more 205 Live has to offer, the veterans looked to shut down the young and up-and-coming newcomers with old-school wrestling tactics. However, it was the new blood that came up with an impressive victory tonight! I can’t wait to see the rematch down the road.



Bollywood Boyz Backstage Promo:

After back-to-back weeks of getting outsmarted by The Brian Kendrick and Akira Tozawa, the Singhs feel disrespected. Especially after Tozawa’s win last week and taking their Boscar award. They will now do battle next week in a tag team match. I want to make one more mention here, Samir and Sunil are incredible heels that get under your skin. It makes you want to knock them out, that’s how you know their characters are working. No longer just lackeys for The Modern Day Maharaja Jinder Mahal!.



Oney Lorcan VS Tony Isner:

Lorcan is fun to watch with his speed and agility always coming into play. This was nothing more than a display of how dominating the crazed Lorcan can be. A mere stop in the road until he gets into the cruiserweight championship title scene.

Winner: Oney Lorcan, Grade–B


Drew Gulak’s Threatening Promo:

A vindictive and vicious Cruiserweight Champion in a dark room delivered another stellar bone-chilling promo. This is the Drew Gulak that we should have gotten all along, like a shark smelling blood anxiously waiting for a challenger and his next victim. Gulak will remain on top of the division, and he doesn’t care who he must obliterate to stay WWE Cruiserweight Champion!



Drew Gulak VS Isiah “Swerve” Scott:

This was a hard-fought battle between the student and the prideful and arrogant teacher. Drew Gulak continues to evolve into a raging beast who is capable of almost anything to hurt his opponents. The champion was perfect in methodically targeting Swerve’s injured hand to ensure the victory.

The young up-and-coming star was out to prove to his mentor, that he’s grown significantly in the squared circle. He did that and much more showing off his speed and agility and keeping Gulak on his toes and all times. There was a dozen of near-falls and great unique counters that brought the WWE Universe to their feet. If Swerve was a little more experienced, his “Swerve” (pun intended) aka confidence would be perfect to go up against the NXT Champion Adam Cole!

Winner: Drew Gulak, Grade–A

Chris’s Show Grade–A


The show opens up with a recap of Mike Kanellis weeks of frustrations and the physical altercation between Drake Maverick and himself last week.

Backstage promo from General Manager of 205 Live Drake Maverick. A remorseful Drake says he crossed the line last week but as a man, he felt justified. Drake announces that Mike’s not here tonight, but he’s going to get his title shot and the opportunity to “kick his ass!” Drake then drops a bombshell that next week it will Drake Maverick vs. Mike Kanellis in an Unsanctioned Match!!

We go live as Vic Joseph and Aiden English welcome us to Miami, FL, and announce tonight’s episode is competition night with NXT superstars crossing over! Starting the night off right high-flying action that makes the cruiserweight division must see! Lucha House Party (Kalisto and Gran Metalik) vs. Humberto Carrillo and NXT’s Raul Mendoza.

The bell rings and Kalisto and Raul start things off. They tie-up and Raul applies a wristlock, Kalisto escapes with a cartwheel into his own to reverse the pressure. Raul locks in a headlock, Kalisto scoops him and tilt-o-whirls out and escapes again! Lucha Libre at its finest ladies and gentlemen! Both competitors are tearing it up and the WWE Universe is on fire! Tag here comes Metalik and Carrillo to show the crowd what they can bring to the table, they both enter with handsprings!

Tie-up and Carillo gains some offense but Metalik reverses…back to Carillo headlock, off the ropes and backflips and Metalik does the same. The competitors shake hands…nope Metalik kicks him and scoops Carillo down. Quick tags by The Lucha House Party to cut off the ring as they school the newcomers. One highlight of the match is when Kalisto tags in Metalik and he uses his back for Metalik to land a missile dropkick! Raul is back in now, firing on all cylinders… clothesline into a dropkick. Irish Whip into the corner and Raul slides through the middle rope, and walking the ropes to hit a dropkick!  Raul hits a ferocious enzugiri for a near-fall!

The finish comes with Carillo and Metalik fighting in the corner, Raul hits another enzugiri on Kalisto and wipes him out with a corkscrew splash outside. Metalik climbs up and lands a backflip into knees… Carillo up now and lands his jaw-dropping twisting corkscrew splash for the 1-2-3!

We head backstage where The Bollywood Boyz are talking about The Brian Kendrick and Akira Tozawa parading through Miami with “their” Boscar award. They say “For weeks Kendrick and Tozawa we’ve been playing your games, but next week we play ours!” Next week it will be Kendrick and Tozawa vs. The Singh Brothers in a tag team match.

We get a stellar video of another crossover superstar from NXT Isaiah “Swerve” Scott.  They show highlights of his matches in NXT while proclaiming that Swerve means confidence!

We get a recap of Chad Gable/Jack Gallagher II from last week, if you haven’t watched it yet, stop reading and go check it out! Seriously GO WATCH IT!  Jack Gallagher sent out a tweet following their outstanding match claiming “The Best of Jack Gallagher is still yet to come!”

I want the trilogy and so does the WWE Universe, perhaps a Two-out-of-Three Falls Match? Make it happen HHH!

Here comes The Fury of 205 Live Oney Lorcan and his opponent Tony Isner is already in the ring. The bell rings as Isner lands some right hands right of the gate, but it’s short-lived as Lorcan takes over with some nasty-looking chops. Lorcan with a hard whip into the corner, followed by three running uppercuts!. Crazed look by Lorcan signals the end as he hits the Half-and-half for the 1-2-3!

Ahead of tonight’s main event, the Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak gave another threatening promo. Claiming he sent out a challenge to anyone on the roster last week, and since nobody answered he’s facing someone from NXT. Many may have forgotten that Gulak trained Swerve and taught him the ropes, but that’s not the Drew Gulak he’ll be facing tonight!

Next week Mike Kanellis will face Drake Maverick in an Unsanctioned Match if Mike wins he will earn himself a title shot at the WWE Cruiserweight Championship!

Here comes Isiah “Swerve” Scott, followed by the champ. The bell rings and Gulak blasts Swerve with a missile dropkick right into the corner, snapmare takedown into a headlock. Swerve escapes into a wristlock and Gulak headscissors out. A slap from the ruthless champion and a stalemate. They interlock with both men jockeying for position, and Gulak throws him into the ropes to the outside. After consecutive sequences of waistlocks and wristlocks and flipping escapes Swerve blasts the veteran with a dropkick and send Gulak outside.

Gulak back in now and he shoves Swerve back to assert his dominance and tosses Swerve outside but he handsprings through. Gulak slides in…Swerve appears to escape but cartwheels into a splash! Swerve on offense and drives Gulak into the corner, breaks at the five-count. Swerve with a takedown and joint manipulation pulling the fingers back. Gulak waistlocks back to his feet, Swerve escapes… nope Gulak pulls him back, back elbow and a devastating right hand Two!  The young up-and-coming superstar is taking it to his former mentor with only one hand now as he blasts the champ with knife edge chops in the corner. A “Let’s Go Swerve” chant breaks out!

Swerve lands some stiff kicks to the body of Gulak, but the champ goes right after the injured hand to and punches Swerve outside. Gulak drives him into the barricade stomach-first, takes him to the announce table and lands a thunderous slap to the chest before driving him onto the hard apron. The ruthless champion is done playing around, as he lifts Swerve up into a Crucifix Bomb into the ring post! Rolls him back in two-count. Gulak locks in a single leg submission all-the-while stomping his boot on Swerve’s head. Gulak Irish Whip into the corner reversed but Swerve can’t capitalize and gets blasted with an elbow. Gulak climbs out and turns Swerve inside out with a ferocious top-rope flying lariat, Two!

The WWE Universe is rallying Swerve back to his feet, Gulak with hard strikes now sends him to the corner. The champ lifts him up again for the crucifix bomb, but Swerve flips out…jawbreaker Gulak is in the corner and eats an elbow, following by a middle-rope spinning uppercut Two! Gulak goes up top and Swerve steiners him crashing to the mat. The fan-favorite is feeling it now, Swerve runs and delivers a killshot calf kick, another near-fall! The second week in a row the WWE Universe is chanting “THIS IS AWESOME!” Gulak back to the injured hand and locks in the Dragon Sleeper, Swerve gets his foot under the rope for a break.

Both competitors are up, Gulak goes up and over the ropes…Swerve with a right hand followed by a shortkick through the ropes. Swerve to the apron, Double-Stomp to his former mentor. Climbs up to the top and lands THUNDEROUS DOUBLE-STOMP, another near-fall! Both competitors back up, Gulak with a strike to the chest…off the ropes and catches Swerve in mid-air for a roll-up, 1-2-nope!

Gulak runs right into a tilt-o-whirl slam into an armbar. Swerve can’t use the right hand to clinch it in, Gulak now with joint manipulation on the injured hand. Swerve with slaps to the face, the vindictive champion fires back with some of his own…High Angle Suplex and then the Cyclone Crash Neckbreaker for the 1-2-3!

That’s the show folks!

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?



With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass

Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed

The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!



Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
