Despite competing in their hometown of Vancouver, The Singh Brothers taunted what should have been a friendly WWE Universe. First, Samir removed his Vancouver Canucks jersey to reveal a Los Angeles Kings jersey, claiming that Wayne Gretzky told The Singhs to leave Canada just like he did. Sunil then revealed a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey, claiming Gretzky told him to only root for a team that has won a Stanley Cup. Displeased with their antics, the WWE Universe in Vancouver were more than elated to see Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch make their way to the ring, ready for a fight.
The Singh Brothers attempted to gain the upper hand by meeting the charging hard-hitters on the entrance ramp, but that was a decision they quickly regretted. However, after Sunil attacked Burch from behind on the outside, it distracted Samir long enough to gain an advantage against Lorcan.
The Singh Brothers stayed in the fight long enough to execute their Bollywood Blast on Burch, but Lorcan made the save. Sunil was dumped to the outside, allowing Burch to regain control of the contest, and Lorcan helped Burch deliver an Implant DDT to secure the victory.
As Lorcan and Daivari celebrated, The Brian Kendrick and Ariya Daivari made their way into the ring and attacked their rivals. Aided by The Singhs, Kendrick and Daivari unleashed their rage, decimating Lorcan and Burch with steel chairs.
Reveling in the glory of their attack on Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch, The Brian Kendrick and Ariya Daivari addressed the WWE Universe, reminding everyone that as WWE 205 Live originals, they won’t allow the likes of Lorcan and Burch to show up and do whatever they want. They were also ready to make an example of whatever tag team they were scheduled to face What they didn’t expect was the unlikely pairing of Tony Nese and a returning Mike Kanellis.
A chaotic match unfolded, as Kanellis and Nese took down Daivari without realizing Kendrick was the legal man. During a pinfall on Daivari, Kendrick managed to apply The Captain’s Hook, forcing Nese to desperately drop himself and Kendrick on their respective partners to break the hold.
Nese nearly secured victory following a 450 Splash on Daivari, only for the pinfall to be broken up by The Man with a Plan. Kendrick responded by executing Sliced Bread No. 2 on Nese followed by The Persian Splash, but The Premier Athlete kicked out.
Frustrated by their inability to secure victory, Kendrick and Daivari were prepared to decimate Nese with steel chairs. However, before they could, Lorcan and Burch returned to the ring, and the distraction allowed Nese to roll up Daivari and score the pinfall victory.
However, there was no time for celebration, as Lorcan and Burch sought retribution for Kendrick and Daivari’s actions earlier in the evening. Lorcan and Burch dismantled their nemeses with steel chairs and stood tall as Kendrick and Daivari retreated.
As Lorcan and Burch stood their ground, it was announced that they would battle Kendrick and Daivari in a No Disqualification Tag Team Match next week!
Two weeks ago on WWE 205 Live, Joaquin Wilde picked up an impressive victory in only his second appearance on the purple brand when he defeated Raul Mendoza. With both Superstars looking to make a splash in the Cruiserweight division and build their cases for a potential NXT Cruiserweight Championship opportunity, they will battle once again next week!
Their first clash was fast-paced and left the WWE Universe on the edge of their seats, and that will undoubtedly be the case when they once again collide. Can Mendoza rebound, or will The Cosmic Superstar prove he’s the next big star of the Cruiserweight division?
After each team attacked the other with steel chairs on WWE 205 Live to bring their rivalry to a boiling point, Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan will collide with The Brian Kendrick and Ariya Daivari in a No Disqualification Tag Team Match next week on 205 Live.
