Another loss for Tehuti/Adonis, and another lesson learned: brag after you’ve won. Kendrick again shows Adonis some respect with a handshake offered, and Tehuti again takes it. Kendrick wants Adonis to know he is a star in the making, and come to him if he ever needs anything. Another lesson is to take advantage of your resources. Will Adonis come to Kendrick with any problems that he faces in the future?

Winners: El Legado del Fantasma, by pinfall
Ever-Rise doesn’t sweat that Oney and Lorcan lost, they just want their pound of flesh! El Legado says a win is a win, but will they continue to win by the skin of their teeth?
A good episode of 205 Live, but I keep hoping they’ll go past half an hour, just to give us a bit more per match. I see that the name change is continuing, I just don’t get why Tehuti Miles is no longer Tehuti Miles when that is a great name that he’s been going by for months. There wasn’t even a real kayfabe explanation for it on NXT or here on 205 Live, something that could’ve helped extend the episode past 30 minutes. Ever-Rise gets a good win over Reality of Wrestling’s Lockhart Brothers, and it makes a lot of sense they still got involved with the main event. For one, it was great to see Escobar get even just that little bit of comeuppance. It was also a way for Oney and Burch to lose without it really hurting their power rankings. I hope this actually turns into a Triple Threat tag and that is how El Legado earns their shot at the NXT Tag Team Champions, who I assume will be Breezango.
My Score: 8/10
