Welcome to another edition of 205 Live Landscape, this week; our main event will be former 205 Live Champion Tony Nese and Akira Tozawa battling it out, to become the New Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak’s challenger for Extreme Rules. 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 sinister promo by Gulak. He says he remained true to his promise and won the title at Stomping Grounds. He’s no longer concerned with a better 205 Live, only a better Drew Gulak. He claims the show doesn’t deserve compassion, only his destructive wrath. Gulak wants Nese and Tozawa to fight to determine his next victim.
We go live as Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuinness, and Aiden English welcome us to Portland, Oregon, while hyping tonight’s main event with Extreme Rules implications. Jack Gallagher makes his entrance. Followed by Mike and Maria Kanellis.
