‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (May 15th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. It’s been a while since new matches were filmed for this show, so let’s see if this episode was worth the wait. Alien: Resurrection was worth the wait…for me to poop on! I’m having a bad day, but you’re smiling face makes it all worthwhile…for me to poop on!

Match #1: Tyler Breeze def. Tehuti Miles

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Though he had to overcome some ring rust during his first bout in six weeks, Tyler Breeze withstood a tough challenge from WWE Performance Center standout Tehuti Miles. Miles wasn’t shy about claiming he was the superior Superstar in skill and looks, but Prince Pretty settled the debate with a brutal Unprettier.

My Opinion: 2.8 out 5 – Breeze is a breeze to watch on this show and in this match. I can’t believe I just said th…yes, I can, because I’m a dumb-ass. Miles did well for the fall guy, but this was Breeze’s match, through and through. For a match with even back-and-forth, along with a healthy dose of Vitamin Cool, you’ll…Vitamin Cool? I really am a dip-s—. This was fun for a match that should have gone a lot longer.

Match #2: (Main Event) Jack Gallagher def. Tony Nese

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

It’s been a tough go lately for Tony Nese. After a winless showing in the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament, The Premier Athlete’s frustrating run continued with a loss to Jack Gallagher on 205 Live. Gallagher landed a Rolling Elbow and promised Nese that their issues were far from settled.

My Opinion: 3.3 out of 5 – This was a fine showing for these two that found more success than Amber Heard trying to frame Johnny Depp as a woman-beater. I don’t like seeing lose again, but he’s had that problem in both TNA and WWE, so he’s used to it by now. Gallagher worked hard, as usual, to give his opponent as much as they give back, so expect a fair deal from both sides of the contest. Overall, this shorter bout will give you enough bang for your buck, but will not have as many bucks as it should have.

Final Verdict: 2.9/5

Doesn’t “Final Verdict” make me sound like prick? The matches needed to be longer, but the action was good, for the most part.
