This match started off with a ton of flipping that actually got a nice reaction from the live crowd. These two gentleman were tasked with following the killer Andrade//Rey Mysterio match from SmackDown Live, but did a great job with it.
Humberto Carrillo got the win via pinfall following some sort of wacky headstand springboard moonsault that looked wicked-cool.
Winner: Humberto Carrillo
Hideo Itami vs. Kalisto vs. Akira Tozawa
Advantage: @WWE_Murphy?#205Live @HideoItami @TozawaAkira @KalistoWWE pic.twitter.com/jyPC9SHfVs— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) January 23, 2019
Hideo Itami controlled the action for the first part of the match and really roughed up the other two competitors. Things got chaotic rather quickly, and Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy (who was watching at ringside) even got involved in the action.
This entire match was fun, but the entire segment felt like it was designed to build up Itami, which is a wonderful sign of things to come. Itami got the win via the GTS ’18.
If you missed this episode of 205 Live, go out of your way to check it out, because both of these matches were fantastic.
Winner: Hideo Itami
