Before we get started, it’s worth noting that this crowd was hot for the entirety of this show. That, combined with the matches and angles, made it must-see TV, in my humble opinion.
This match, in particular, was probably the best match of the night. Mike Kanellis got the win after a hard-fought battle, but the story was actually what happened after the match itself was over…
Later on the show, Oney Lorcan was being interviewed backstage when Nese, who was upset about his match, was nearby. Lorcan tried to console Nese but was viciously attacked for his efforts. More on Evil Nese later…
Winner: Mike Kanellis

Humberto Carrillo vs. Lince Dorado

After a bit of a slow start, an intense chop exchange got this match (and this crowd) really going. And things never really slowed down, which is pretty much the norm at this point for 205 Live main events.
We got tons of creative dives to the floor, including one where Dorado dove through the ropes and DDT’d Carrillo on the floor, which is just mind-boggling awesome.
Dorado got the win after a Shooting Star Press, which actually means he’s been added to the Cruiserweight Title match at Clash of Champions. He’ll join current champion Drew Gulak, as well as the man he faced tonight, Carrillo, in a 3-way match for the title in two weeks.
Speaking of Gulak, he attacked Dorado from behind post-match, and eventually, Nese showed up and the duo took out both Carrillo and Dorado. Evil Nese has gone full Evil now, and a tag match between these four will most likely steal the show next week (if I had to guess).
