Welcome to the go-home edition of 205 Live Landscape, each week we will break down the action of the amazing cruiserweights in WWE this week’s main event includes a one-on-one contest where Oney Lorcan and Ariya Daivari will add a new chapter in their bitter rivalry, one week after Daivari cost Lorcan the opportunity to become the number-one contender. Here at Pro Wrestling Post, we want to share with you the most exhilarating matches pro wrestling has to offer!
Tonight’s episode begins with a video of General Manager Drake Maverick addressing the conclusion…or rather not one, to last week’s fatal-four-way where both Drew Gulak and Akira Tozawa pinned each other’s shoulders to the mat and left with no conclusive number-one contender.
He announces that since both competitors won the fatal-four-way, then Akira Tozawa and Drew Gulak will face Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese in a Triple-threat-match at WWE Stomping Grounds this Sunday. The Lucha House Party will also be facing ‘The Bollywood Boyz’ Samir and Sunil Singh tonight. Let’s get this party started on the last stop before the pay-per-view.
We go live as a new voice to 205 Live SmackDown Live’s commentator Tom Phillips, Nigel McGuinness, and Aiden English welcome us to Ontario, CA. We’re kicking the show off with tag-team action as the Lucha House Party makes their entrance.

Double Arm-Drag… Wheelbarrow Senton and Dorado plank splash…two-count. Lots of taunting and gloating from The Singh’s.

Dar’s Demands: Noam Dar is sipping a drink here in Magaluf and rehabbing his knee…while claiming he’s not coming back to 205 Live until new safety procedures are set in place…Looks like Brian Kendrick was on the same flight as he walks right in and plays along for a minute. Kendrick better catch his private jet so he can compete…in two minutes…we head to commercial.
Back live as Brian Kendrick makes his way for his one-on-one match with Russ Taylor…on Raw Russ and Randy aka jobbers got annihilated by The Viking Raiders. Nothing to mention…Squash match Russ rocks Kendrick with a stiff forearm after that Kendrick obliterated him…Sliced Bread #2.

Schrieber asks him about his disappointing loss…Mike and Maria Kanellis interrupt. Mike calls him an embarrassment to 205 Live; as well as Maverick who’s absent from the show and, how Gallagher was gifted a golden opportunity and squandered it. Maria chimes in…WWE needs us…Gallagher challenges Mike for next week.
Ariya Daivari is out first for his match with Oney Lorcan in our main event.
Oney Lorcan vs. Ariya Daivari
Right out of gate…. An uppercut to Daivari. Lorcan is firing on all cylinders as he continues the attack. Daivari outside…He tried to escape a few times but Lorcan prevents it. All Lorcan so far…Wants the half-and-half but Daivari counters…a Daivari’s Court that hyperextends Lorcan’s arm. Plenty of rest holds and more precise dissection of Lorcan’s injured arm, another Half and half attempt…Daivari drives him shoulder-first into the turnbuckle. More methodical attacks on the arm. half-and-half reversed…Daivari locks in The Million Dollar Dream and Lorcan is down…Lorcan now driving Daivari in all four corners to escape the hold.
Armbreaker to Lorcan’s arm, iconoclasm off the top rope..1-2-kick out. Persian Lion nobodies home…Strikes and uppercuts from Lorcan…Running Blockbuster…1-2..nope. Hard chops to Daivari…Uppercuts…Million Dollar Dream…reversed into a half-and-half but Daivari rolls outside.

Winner by DQ: Oney Lorcan
He drills with some punches before sending Lorcan into the steel steps. Smashes him headfirst into the Titantron Tron…He’s not through and drops him with a ferocious Rainmaker on the ramp.
Triple-Threat-Promo: Tony Nese up first; he talks about the odds always stacked against him, while also declaring if Tozawa or Gulak want HIS Cruiserweight championship they are going to have to beat him. This felt forced… Nese needs to turn heel again.
Akira Tozawa acknowledges the task ahead of him…He promises to become a two-time Cruiserweight champion…Promos have never been a strong suit for him…He’ll speak volumes on Sunday with his high-flying maneuvers.
Drew Gulak is on last, this is a brand-new more focused Gulak. He tells a parable about terror never sleeping, and it correlates with the sadistic and calculated attitude he brings out. Call him sadistic, dangerous, and vicious, you will soon call him…Cruiserweight Champion!
