WWE 205 Live Results and Review
Drew Gulak defeated Mark Andrews
This was a fight, a real fight. Andrews was able to turn things up with his high flying, but Gulak was fighting hardcore. He fought through a lot of Gulak’s technical tactics, but would eventually miss a high spot and then get thrown into a hard dragon sleeper for the win. Gulak, before the match cut a “Power Point” presentation name drop and I was marking out huge. This was good, and that’s that. Great match.
Hideo Itami and Akira Tozawa defeated Two Jobbers
The WWE site has put the names of these two jobbers, but I didn’t want to type it out. Itami and Tozawa are fluid in the ring and I was surprised to see how well they worked together. They put the jobbers through some nice moments, and at this point, I see them getting the belts if the rumored tag team match is true.
Mustafa Ali defeated Buddy Murphy
This was one hell of a match. Ali did his usual spots, but Buddy Murphy was one step ahead for the majority of the match. Go and watch this and see two performers that were evenly matched with one just faster than the other. Murphy was just so good against Ali, and it brought the best out of Ali throughout. At the end of the match, it was Murphy that would lose because he had a shoulder issue that Ali kept going back to. I was impressed with the counters during this match, and honestly, you can’t sleep on this, it was that good. An incredible show ender, and I would go back and see it again.
That’s the end of 205 Live, and great stuff. Next week we will have Roderick Strong and Cedric Alexander will throw down for an incredible showcase as well.
