Matt Marthel and Chase Parker feel cheated because their cheating didn’t win! They get a rematch out of the BritAm Bruisers, but can they redeem themselves? Or will it be another 1-2-3 for the One Two?
Daivari joins commentary for this match and says this is the first time in FOUR YEARS he’s even been invited. That’s a disgrace to him, the main stay of this brand! Daivari’s disgruntled attitude aside, Ever-Rise gets attitude with Vic Joseph now because of his “big mouth!” Vic is on thin ice with them now, and Gulak joins in just so they won’t be upset with him.

Escobar stands tall with his title belt and his cohorts by his side! A message has been sent to the Cruiserweight Division, but how will Swerve and others respond?
WWE advertised this as “Must-see” but I wouldn’t say that. It was a good episode, very fast paced since it still had to happen within 30 minutes. I like the continuation of Tehuti’s story where he takes on 205 Live OG’s. Daivari and Tehuti had a good match, of course Tehuti loses to continue the story, and Daivari leaving Tehuti hanging on the handshake was also pretty good. Daivari joining commentary on the main event was also good, because it makes sense as he has beef with Oney still.
Mansoor VS Colby was a better match than I expected, but obviously Mansoor wins. I kinda hope Colby is given half a chance to be something in WWE, this was a really good start. And then I was confused as to why we got a rematch of Ever-Rise and BritAm Bruisers, but it was going great, and then El Legado shows up! That was quite the beating they gave everyone, and it shows 205 Live is at least good for giving the Cruiserweight title story more build since there’s only so much time on NXT.
My Score: 8.1/10
