Ariya Daivari vs. Kalisto
The #LuchaHouseParty‘s @KalistoWWE is ALL OVER @AriyaDaivariWWE at the outset of this one! #205Live pic.twitter.com/LrwxhU4BCp— WWE Network (@WWENetwork) August 28, 2019
This one started off quickly, and never really slowed down, if I’m being honest. Early on, Daivari tripped up Kalisto on the ring apron and then dropkicked him (from inside of the ring) off the apron and into the barricade… Ouch.
Daivari actually controlled the pace of the match from this moment on. Kalisto did manage to fight back at moments, especially towards the end, but he just didn’t have enough to get the job done.
Daivari got the win via the Pepsi Twist. The crowd never really got into this match, for whatever reason, but it was far from bad and actually quite fun to watch.
Winner: Ariya Daivari
Humberto Carrillo vs. Oney Lorcan
No. 1 Contendership Match for the Cruiserweight Championship
He’s flying!!! #205Live @humberto_wwe @_StarDESTROYER pic.twitter.com/h0aOUgduao— 205 Live (@WWE205Live) August 28, 2019
This match was made earlier on in the show. It was announced that the winner would earn the right to face Drew Gulak for the Cruiserweight Championship at Clash of Champions, which really helped create a big fight feel.
Things started off slow, but once they got going, they really got going. Lorcan managed to ground Carrillo early on. He mixed in some fun submission holds with some nasty smash mouth offense, which is always a blast to watch.
Carrillo went for a moonsault at one point, but Lorcan got the boots up. Carrillo eventually followed that up with a dive to the floor, which did manage to connect.
After a few more awesome spots, including a half-and-half suplex on the floor from Lorcan, Carrillo got the win via the rounding moonsault. He’s headed to Clash of Champions to face Gulak for the title in 10 days.
