Daivari Dinero could not make Atlas pay, and then Atlas is ready to stop him from bringing the chair in! Atlas looks ready to swing on the OG, but they regroup and retreat! Is there going to be a new pecking order in the purple ‘n’ orange now?
A pretty good episode for 205 Live, and I did NOT expect the tag match to be a No Holds Barred match. It was pretty good for one, but all the more reason they should try and let 205 Live be longer than half an hour. I am fairly certain Ever-Rise and Bollywood Boyz could have gone a lot longer than they did, to properly bring things back to this show’s “golden days.” I will say it is surprising Ever-Rise won, but I suppose they’ve been building up a lot of momentum from NXT so it makes some sense.
Then we got a really good match out of Atlas and Nese, even with Daivari getting involved. I’m still not sure why they keep trying to make the cartwheel DDT happen, to where they’ve even given Atlas a move that only serves to set him up for it. I suppose it’s hard to come up with completely original finishers, so it was just easier to stick with what he had than spend an unknown amount of time working out something else. But Atlas winning was still a good move. Daivari and Nese have been on 205 Live for a long, long time, I’m not sure they’re ever going anywhere else other than NXT, but being gatekeepers on 205 Live is still a solid role.
My Score: 8.1/10
