So, last week, Drew Gulak beat Oney Lorcan in a Cruiserweight Championship rematch, but the story wasn’t over.The two had a nasty brawl in the back after the show, leading to Drake Maverick declaring a massive tag match for this week!
Team Gulak vs Team Lorcan. Let the Cruiserweight Civil War begin!
Team Gulak (Drew Gulak, Ariya Daivari, Mike Kanellis, Tony Nese, and Angel Garza from NXT’s Breakout Tournament) vs Team Lorcan (Oney Lorcan, Humberto Carillo, Jack Gallagher, Akira Tozawa, and Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott)
Okay, I honestly wasn’t expecting this match to be the WHOLE show, but a tag match this big is probably going to take awhile, especially if it’s a Survivor Series style match, which is what it seems like it’s going to be given that basically the entire 205 roster is in this match.
The quadruple dive with Williams IV, V, VI, and VII, which is more King Williams than have existed in the whole of English History, was really fun.
I really appreciate that the NXT guys got a chance to really shine in this match. It would’ve been easy for the top 205 guys to take the whole spotlight, but they didn’t. Also, Carrillo vs Garza was LOVELY.
Also, as seen in the header, Mike Kanellis was back! Unfortunately, he didn’t get as good a showing as I would’ve liked, but he was there and eliminated someone along the way.
Scott vs Garza was so good to watch. I can’t believe NXT was keeping these guys off TV because they are SO good!
Was NOT expecting that confrontation between Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher. Looks like Kendrick might be getting ready to turn heel again.
Scrap this whole multi-man and make it Garza vs Scott.
I just get nothing from Humberto Carrillo. I want to, he’s a great talent and screams ‘babyface’, but I just feel like there’s nothing to him.
Did Lorcan just take out his own partner? No, wait, that was Garza, my mistake. In my defense, Garza and Carrillo are both wearing white and gold ring gear.
So, Gulak got DQ’d for using a chair, saving himself from being pinned by Lorcan or Carrillo, but I don’t think that’s going to help him with Maverick.
Good god, Garza didn’t even try to hide the fact that he was using the ropes for leverage. Don’t they teach that in heel school?
So, Carrillo gets the win for his team, but the champ wasn’t pinned, so it was a pin that really means nothing. However, it’s clear that Gulak vs Lorcan isn’t over with, but after all that, the continuation of ONE feud seems like small potatoes. Maybe it’s just me.
That’s it for Tiffany’s 205 Takes! Tune in tomorrow for the NXT coverages.
