Three weeks ago, Ever-Rise and The Bollywood Boyz were bribed by Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese to interfere in a Fatal 5-Way Match on their behalf, but the plan backfired when Curt Stallion nevertheless claimed the victory, and the teams blamed one another for their failure to secure a win for either Daivari or Nese, sparking a tag team battle between them.
Chase Parker found himself in a world of trouble early in the bout, isolated from his teammate and subjected to several stinging chops and a spinning heel kick from Sunil Singh. After a tag from Sunil to Samir, however, Parker dodged a top-rope reverse elbow attempt from Samir, who instead clobbered his brother.
Parker made a diving tag to Matt Martel, who brutalized Samir with wicked strikes and a picture-perfect dropkick that caught Samir in the jaw. Moments later, Martel got his squad back in the win column after he and Parker leveled Samir with the French Connection.
Curt Stallion is for real.
What other conclusion can be made after the No. 1 contender to the NXT Cruiserweight Title decisively defeated 205 Live OG Ariya Daivari, especially since the win came just two days after he was viciously attacked by all three members of Legado del Fantasma near his residence?
Stallion, who won a Fatal 5-Way Match to earn a future championship bout against Santos Escobar and has been in Daivari’s crosshairs ever since debuting on the purple brand, showed a newfound mean streak, bouncing Daivari’s head off the announce table and hurling him into the ringside Plexiglas.
Stallion’s toughness was also on full display, as he whiffed on a dive through the ropes, crashed into the barricade, splattered to the floor and narrowly beat the official’s 10-count to avoid a loss.
Daivari seemed to be in the driver’s seat when he dropkicked Stallion and went for the Persian Splash, but Stallion rolled out of the way and tattooed his foe with a reverse flying elbow for the win.
