WWE 205 Live 2.14.17: Spewin’ Snark Recap w/ Cameron Dougharty
Corey Graves said ‘205 Live and chill’, like that would even be over with a girl that’s into wrestling. You just moved down a peg, Graves.
Noam Dar v. Rich Swann
Rich Swann is back, bay bay! As each week goes by I could make a strong argument for six cruiserweights that should be on the main roster, easily. Here’s to hoping there is at least two cruiserweight matches at Wrestlemania.
Swann picks up the win and puts his name back into the hat for the top contender on 205 Live; the roster is stacked.
Gran Metalik v. Drew Gulak
Metalik makes his 205 Live debut and could become a fan favorite sooner than later. Both Metalik and Lince Dorado would love to rise to the main roster and fill that lucha void the WWE continues to have. Who’s still signed to the WWE in two years, Metalik or Gulak?
Metalik, as expected, didn’t lose his 205 Live debut but went through a physical style of wrestling hell from Drew in order to do so.
TJ Perkins v. Neville
Going back to the Cruiserweight Classic, the WWE having Perkins win the inaugural tournament was almost a Roman Reigns-esque rub to help Perkins stay over with the causal fan. Since TJ dropped the title Neville, Rich Swann, Cedric Alexander, Akira Tozawa and Jack Gallagher have all passed Perkins by. He just happens to be the weak link of the show, proving how deep the 205 Live roster really is.
Neville picked up the win with a double arm bar. Replacing the 450 splash with a submission finish helps his heel character really thrive. EVERYONE wants to see his 450 splash and NO ONE, simply, will get it.
