Last month on WWE 205 Live, Joaquin Wilde picked up an impressive victory in only his second appearance on the purple brand by defeating Raul Mendoza. Looking to bounce back, Mendoza battled The Cosmic Superstar once more.
Mendoza adopted an unpredictable arsenal, mixing strength with speed, forcing his opponent to the outside before flattening him by rolling through the middle rope and dropping Wilde on the arena floor. Back inside the ring, Mendoza turned up the pressure, attacking with ferocity and preparing to drop his opponent from the top rope. However, The Cosmic Superstar reversed an electric chair from the top rope into a huge powerbomb to regain control.
Wilde sped up his attacks and stayed one step ahead of Mendoza, pushing him off the top rope to the outside before landing a huge senton.
Both Superstars traded high-impact strikes followed by quick recoveries. And after avoiding his opponent’s patented Wilde Thing, Mendoza dropped Wilde with a huge kick to score the pinfall victory.
After Lio Rush was defeated by NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin in WWE NXT earlier in the week, Tyler Breeze tried to encourage The Man of the Hour, but Rush wanted nothing to do with Prince Pretty. However, with title aspirations of his own, Breeze returned to WWE 205 Live to battle Samir Singh.
As the opening bell sounded, Samir engaged in his usual antics, but his taunting backfired when Prince Pretty struck back and forced Samir to the outside to strategize with his brother. Breeze flattened Samir on the outside and pushed him back in the ring, only to be distracted by Sunil.
With Breeze outnumbered, The Singh Brothers worked together to keep Prince Pretty on defense. As Sunil once again tried to aid his brother, Breeze fell from the top rope to the canvas, but he recovered in time to nail Samir with a Supermodel Kick to score the win.
Immediately after Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch entered the ring, The Brian Kendrick and Ariya Daivari wasted little time charging the squared circle and decimating their bitter rivals all over the outside of the ring.
After gaining the upper hand, Lorcan and Burch obliged the WWE Universe and retrieved a table. Preparing to put The Persian Lion through the table, the two heavy hitters were blindsided by Kendrick. Seizing the opportunity to strike, The Man with a Plan dropped Lorcan through the table with a Death Valley Driver.
Daivari tossed Burch over the announce table and fetched a ladder from underneath the ring. Daivari’s plan backfired, as he tried to toss Burch into the ladder only to be countered and greeted by the ladder with his own face instead.
Ascending to the top of the ladder, Daivari delivered a huge splash but saw victory escape his grasp as Lorcan broke up the pinfall.
Burch avoided a double suplex before sitting Kendrick in the chair for Lorcan to execute a blockbuster. Lorcan dropped onto both opponents on the outside before duct-taping Kendrick to the turnbuckle. Lorcan and Burch delivered an impact DDT on the table before executing the move a second time in the center of the ring with Kendrick watching helplessly as the official made the three-count.
Next week, WWE 205 Live original Tony Nese will pick four partners to face a team chosen by NXT Cruiserweight Lio Rush for a 10-Man Elimination Match that will take place next month.
Additionally, the former NXT Cruiserweight Champions will go one-on-one in a captain’s match next week!
