Noam Dar vs. Ariya Daivari
#DaivariDinero gets the better of @NoamDar on #205Live… is @TonyNese next at #MITB? @AriyaDaivariWWE pic.twitter.com/AY7mVxnbKl— 205 Live (@WWE205Live) May 8, 2019
Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese was at ringside for this match. He’ll face Ariya Daivari for the title at Money in the Bank in two weeks.
Davair and Noam Daw went back-and-forth for the majority of the match. Daivari locked in the Million Dollar Dream at one point, and it looked like it was all over for Dar, but he somehow managed to roll out of it.
Daivari spent some time jawing back and forth with Nese, too, leading to Dar staying around for a lot longer than he probably should have. Speaking of Dar, he planted Daivari with a pretty Northern Lights, but it wasn’t enough to win the match.
Daivari landed a top rope frog splash, and then a hammerlock lariat, to get the pinfall victory.
After the match, Tony Nese snuck up on Daivari but didn’t attack him. He told Daivari that he could have if he wanted to but didn’t. Mind games and whatnot.
Winner: Ariya Daivari
The Singh Brothers vs. ???
WINNER WINNER! #205Live @SinghBrosWWE pic.twitter.com/Knxfy7kA1g— 205 Live (@WWE205Live) May 8, 2019
The Singh Brothers got a win over two local competitors.
They called out the Lucha House Party post-match and challenged them to a match. In case you missed it, the Singhs lost to the LHP last week, so they’re looking for revenge.
Winner: The Singh Brothers
Mike Kanellis vs. Akira Tozawa
Ummmm, what? But, YES. #205Live @TozawaAkira @RealMikeBennett pic.twitter.com/5AwV7n4i97— WWE (@WWE) May 8, 2019
Akira Tozawa wasted no time getting after Mike Kanellis, who was alone this week (no Maria Kanellis at ringside). The two brawled all the way up the ramp, and then back down it, where Kanellis laid out Tozawa with a nasty sidewalk slam on the steel.
In control, Kanellis brought out a ton of chairs, and two tables, both of which he set up at ringside near the entrance ramp. Daivari went to take Kanellis out with diving headbutt but was met with a superkick.
In the ring, two chairs were set up next to one another. Tozawa suplexed Kanellis brutally back-first onto those two chairs. Tozawa then put a trashcan on Kanellis’ head and landed his diving headbutt, which got a laugh from us.
Back in the ring, Kanellis flattened that same trash can with a fireman’s carry Michinoku Driver. The two then engaged in a striking exchange, ending when Tozawa hit Kanellis with a pretty snap German Suplex.
We got another German from Tozawa, this time on the apron, sending them back to the floor and near those tables. Tozawa tried to set up Kanellis for the diving senton, but Kanellis blocked it and went for something else.
We think Kanellis was going for that fireman’s carry Michinoku Driver again, but Tozawa countered with a headscissors, sending both men crashing from the top rope, to the floor, and through both tables.
Tozawa got both himself and Kanellis back in the ring (his shoulder was pretty messed up from the table spot), covered Kanellis with chairs, and hit his diving senton to get the win.
This match RULED and is very much worth going out of your way to watch, if you missed it.
Winner: Akira Tozawa
