WWE 206 Live February 20, 2018 Results and Review
Buddy Murphy defeated Ariya Daivari
The opening match had a back and forth sequencing to it that wasn’t half bad. Buddy Murphy was faster than Daivari at different points, but Ariya didn’t just let himself get pushed over. He hit a great deal of his moves, but it was Murphy’s rough and tumble process of wrestling that would garner the success in this one, and Daivari got pinned. The ending sequence is something to behold as this was a great overall match.
Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik defeated Evan Daniels and Corazon Delgado
This was a job match, and the mainstay Lucha Guys beat down the other guys, and that’s that. A burial.
Mustafa Ali defeated Gentleman Jack Gallagher
This match didn’t make much sense to me, Ali took so much punishment that he shouldn’t have been able to do some of the moves that he threw down. At one point, it even looked like he took a bad spill, and was out cold. Gallagher was able to win several times, and I found his offense a bit more crisp than when he was just comedic in character. Ali, despite a shoulder focused beat down, pulled out the inverted 450 splash and he’d win. It was great to see, and he pulled off one hell of a win as Gallagher once again loses.
That’s the end of this night of wrestling, and it was a purist’s wrestling showcase. I liked it, and you should definitely check it out, as it has a great deal of focus on the work of the cruiserweights. Not as good as WCW, but still a good night of wrestling if you ask me.
