The 07/16/19 edition of WWE 205 Live, out of the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, just wrapped up. We’ve got the match results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #139 of 205 Live by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Samir Singh (w/ Sunil Singh) vs. Akira Tozawa (w/ Brian Kendrick)
Akira Tozawa defeated Samir Singh to kick off the show. Sunil Singh tried to get involved toward the end of the match, but Brian Kendrick was there to stop him and thus allowed Tozawa to keep things one-on-one.
Expect to see a tag match between these four in the coming weeks.
Winner: Akira Tozawa
Mike Kanellis vs. Peter Parker (???)
Squash match. Kanellis ran over a local guy with ease.
Post-match, Kanellis and Drake Maverick got into a spat on the microphone. The two ended up coming to blows, but believe it or not, Maverick got the better of Kanellis in the skirmish.
Perhaps this is building to Drake’s first legit match in WWE? That could be fun!
Winner: Mike Kanellis
Chad Gable vs. Gentleman Jack Gallagher
Spoiler alert: This match ruled. Hard. In fact, this was not only the best 205 Live match of the year but one of the best WWE matches of the year period. To say it’s worth checking out would be a massive understatement.
As for the match, things started off slow, with both guys going back and forth on the ground. After that bit ended in a stalemate, Gable introduced striking into the match, and things never really slowed down from there until it was over.
Gable landed a pretty belly-to-belly on Gallagher, and then a few more uppercuts. He followed that up with another suplex, then a dragon screw leg sweep, but it wasn’t enough to win him the match.
Gallagher didn’t give up there, as he landed a nice dropkick, and then his delayed suplex, for a near fall of his own. Out on the floor, Gallagher threw Gable into the barricade HARD. Gable retaliated with another suplex, dumping Gallagher on his head on the ringside area. Good stuff.
Back in the ring, Gable locked in an ankle lock, but Gallagher escaped. He then almost headbutted Gable’s head completely off, but even that wasn’t enough to get him the win.
Gable then went for his moonsault, but Gallagher got his boots up. He followed that up with a Daniel Bryan-like corner dropkick, and then went back up the top for what looked like a suplex.
Gable countered, sending Gallagher to the mat with his (Gable) own body weight crashing down on top of Gallagher. The German with a bridge was all Gable needed after that to get the win.
Winner: Chad Gable
