‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (March 20th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a couple of fun pairings here to enjoy, so let’s rock.


Match #1: Danny Burch defeated Joaquin Wilde

Looking to continue making a name for himself in the Cruiserweight division, Joaquin Wilde turned his attention to the hard-hitting Danny Burch. Intense and ready for a fight, Burch was ready for action and charged into the ring. The Cosmic Superstar landed the first big blow when he jumped into the stands at the Performance Center and launched himself onto Burch to take control of the contest. With the bout in his favor, Wilde kept Burch grounded by focusing on his arm and taking away much of the British Superstar’s hard-hitting offense. However, the resilient Brit fired back and broke free of his opponent’s hold before unleashing a series of crushing strikes and landing a missile dropkick. Burch countered his opponent’s patented Wilde Thing and nearly secured a pinfall. Taking down Burch with double knees to the chest, Wilde missed a high-flying maneuver only to be head-butted by Burch. Capitalizing on Wilde’s dazed state, Burch quickly locked in a crossface to force The Cosmic Superstar to tap out.

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5 – This was really good for a match that went less than ten. The contrast in styles was a blast and there’s nothing here that isn’t worth seeing at least once.

Match #2: (Main Event) Isaiah Scott defeated Oney Lorcan

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Although they were victorious teammates last week in the 10-man Elimination Tag Team Match on WWE 205 Live, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Oney Lorcan stood on opposite sides in singles competition tonight. After a series of fast-paced counters and submission attempts, Scott was forced to the apron, allowing The Boston Brawler to take him down with a dragon screw to the leg. Wasting little time to capitalize, Lorcan returned the battle to the ring and focused on Scott’s leg. As Lorcan continued to mount pressure, “Swerve” applied an armbar and delivered a series of kicks to Lorcan’s head, but Scott delivered a huge chop before de-cleating Lorcan with a powerful lariat. Scott maintained control, despite fighting through the pain inflicted on his leg by Lorcan. After nearly securing victory with a Flatliner, Scott was once again forced on defense as they battled in the corner. Lorcan tried to set up a Half and Half suplex from the top rope, but Scott countered by dropping The Boston Brawler to the mat and executing a double stomp from the top to secure the victory.

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5 – This was another good match from this show. All of my observations about this match are the same as the opener. I liked the different styles meshing well, but still having some common ground to work on. Swerve has plenty of talent to take him any-where, but I hope that Vince sees that. Any-way, this was good stuff.

Final Verdict: 3.4/5

This was a good show that needed a bit more wrestling to turn some heads, but what was here was worth your time.
