The 05/22/18 episode of WWE 205 Live just wrapped up. We’ve got the match results and our overall thoughts on the show for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #77 of WWE 205 Live by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.


Drew Gulak vs. Gran Metalik


Gran Metalik took things to the air early and often, but Gulak used his superb technique to ground Metalik, rendering the ring a “no fly zone.” Metalik is one of the better high flyers in the company at the moment, which is really saying something because the roster is the most athletic it’s ever been. Gulak eventually locked in the Gu-Lock to get the victory after a hard fought battle.

Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher were on commentary for this bout and absolutely killed it. At one point, Gallagher confused Metalik with the band Metallica, which got a big reaction from us.

Winner: Dew Gulak


Buddy Murphy Talks His Game


WWE aired a video package promoting Buddy Murphy, as well as his Cruiserweight Championship match with Cedric Alexander taking place NEXT WEEK. It’s going to be good, you guys.


TJP vs. Christopher Guy (?)


TJP squashed Christopher Guy(?) with minimal effort.

The commentary team put over the fact that TJP has been complaining about lack of opportunities on 205 Live, going as far as to reach out to SmackDown Live GM, Paige, about a spot on the blue brand. Drake Maverick was shown watching the match backstage and he did not look happy, so TJP might be in the 205 Live GM’s doghouse at the moment.

Winner: TJP


The Champ is Here


Cedric Alexander had a sit-down interview with Vic Joseph backstage, designed to further hype next week’s title match against Buddy Murphy. The match will be taking place in Alexander’s hometown, so things are going to get crazy. TUNE IN!


Hideo Itami vs. Akira Tozawa


This match was very stiff, which was expected given the bad energy that has built between these two as of late. More than once, Itami got a little too invested in what the crowd was doing, giving Tozawa the opening he needed to shift things in his favor. The story of Itami not living up to the hype and, as a result, living in his own head and getting in his own way, is excellent writing and the perfect way to use bits of reality in a wrestling storyline in 2018.

At one point, Itami hit a top rope Falcon Arrow, but only managed to get two count out of it. Itami followed that up with a nasty face lock spin kick to the head of Tozawa to get the win. It’s not the GTS, but it gets the job done.

Winner: Hideo Itami
