‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (April 10th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and this f—– is hanging in there. Maybe being a cruiserweight is an immunity to COVID-19? Nah, but it sure does feel like a Hot Pocket in here…HOT POCKET!!!!!!!! Like Bob Ross always says, “B—-, where’s my money?!”


Match #1: Tony Nese def. Danny Burch

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

With the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship beginning next week on WWE NXT, former champion Tony Nese and Danny Burch each hoped to make a case for a spot in the tournament, bringing them on a collision course with each other. The two Superstars have clashed before, but never with the stakes this high. Burch landed one of the biggest blows of the contest when he caught Nese with a jawbreaker before the British Superstar unloaded with his brawling instincts. However, a flurry of hard-hitting offense was not enough to finish off Nese. In control but growing frustrated, Nese executed a drop into the top rope and springboard moonsault. After escaping a crossface, Nese quickly tossed Burch into the turnbuckle with a German suplex before hitting the Running Nese for the win.

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5 – This was a cold, scientific match that I liked, but still feel needed some passion to it. Well, this was good fun though, so don’t think you’ll have a bad time here. As an opener, this did its job and made me happy for all the lobster people…drenched in butter…sweet, sweet butter. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

Match #2: (Main Event) Oney Lorcan vs. Jack Gallagher (No Contest)

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Following Tony Nese’s victory against Danny Burch, The Premier Athlete approached the announce table and refused to leave, as John Quasto and Byron Saxton continued their broadcast. Nese was making his case for why he would win the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship and felt disrespected. Gentleman Jack Gallagher made his way to the ring for his battle with Oney Lorcan. A frustrated Gallagher confronted The Premier Athlete, who finally left the ring as Lorcan made his entrance. The early goings were highlighted by one of the most brutal back-and-forth striking contests WWE 205 Live has ever seen. The intensity continued to mount as Gallagher executed a series of headbutts before being dropped with a Half and Half Suplex. After preventing a Half and Half from the top rope, Gallagher stopped his opponent in his tracks with a diving cross body, but he was distracted as Nese retuned to ringside and sat down. After Gallagher kicked out of a pinfall attempt, The Premier Athlete entered the ring and attacked the British Superstar. With the match ending in a No Contest, Lorcan attacked Nese, and the two battled until Burch came to Lorcan’s aid and chased away The Premier Athlete.

My Opinion: 3.5 out of 5 – This was livelier than the opener and just as much fun. Jack and Oney are a match made in heaven…or Churchill’s wet-dreams. If you like technical wrestling, then this match will tickle your fancy, you p—-. For a hard-hitting fight that did more for advocating professional dentistry than any NASCAR event in Alabama, you can’t go wrong with this.

News Of The Night:

  1. A tournament to crown an Interim NXT Cruiser-Weight Champion starts, next week.

Final Verdict: 3.5/5

This was easy viewing, like it should be.
