Winners: Isaiah “Swerve” Scott & The BritAm Brawlers
Whose House? Swerve’s House! He helped One and Burch take care of Tehuti, but it seems things are only getting more complicated for Nese and Gallagher. What will it take to settle that side of the board?
This was an alright episode of 205 Live. Ever-Rise finally moves up from being jobbers to being guys who face jobbers and win. They’ll move up the ladder as the weeks go by, but it’ll be some time before they’re really anywhere near title talks. If only there were Cruiserweight Tag Team Championships… But then the Six Man was a lot of fun, though maybe could’ve been much longer to really play up the dysfunction between Tehuti and the 205 Live OG in Gallagher and Nese. But it made a lot of sense for Gallagher to get fed up and ditch Tehuti. Not sure if it made sense for Nese to follow Gallagher, because I honestly thought and was hoping it’d stay a Triple Threat feud between them and Swerve. I had half a feeling that Tehuti and Swerve were going to come to some kind of understanding of swagger and become a team in this match, but maybe that comes later. It just seems odd that two feuds that were 2v1 melded together out of nowhere and then didn’t result in something more.
My Score: 8/10
