‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (May 22nd 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and STARDOM wrestler Hana Kimura committed suicide, because a bunch of jack-asses went on the internet and told her she was a piece of s— for knocking some guy’s hat of his head for shrinking her wrestling gear in the wash. What a lousy week. Additionally, both Shad Gaspard and Larry Csonka (who died this recently) have GoFundMe campaigns available here and here. Internet nerds piss me off when they act like pricks and here comes some cruiserweight wrestling.

Match #1: Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch def. Ever-Rise

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch were motivated to keep the momentum going from their NXT win, and that determination was evident from the opening bell against Ever-Rise. Chase Parker & Matt Martel had an early advantage, but Lorcan & Burch did what they do best: fought back and picked up a gritty win.

My Opinion: 2.8 out of 5 – This was a pretty simple few minutes that saw ol’ Oney and Danny carry E-R to a decent little match.

Match #2: (Main Event) Isaiah “Swerve” Scott def. Tyler Breeze

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Isaiah “Swerve” Scott entered this 205 Live clash at a crossroads, as Tyler Breeze offered veteran advice after Swerve fell short in the NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament. Prince Pretty got his message across early, but Scott’s decisive Confidence Booster earned the victory.

My Opinion: 3.1 out of 5 – This was good, but it didn’t have the snap to it you would hope for. Make no mistake when I say that this was a quality match, but it wasn’t as lively as you might like. The moves were good and the right guy won, but I was hoping for more from two guys that can give more without killing themselves. At the end of the day, they were booked for less than ten and they and to deliver a match that could fit into that time-frame. Overall, I enjoyed this, but it isn’t enough to draw folks back to the show.

Final Verdict: 2.9/5

Two matches in thirty minutes is a decent way to spend some time in the day.
