‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (June 19th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and this should be Jack Gallagher’s last match in the WWE (possibly anywhere) due to him being fired after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct came to light during the first day or so of #speakingout. Also, The Monkees are cool and don’t ever let anybody tell you they suck! Okay, let’s get to the matches.

Match #1: Oney Lorcan def. Chase Parker

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Oney Lorcan of The Brit-Am Brawlers and Chase Parker of Ever-Rise collided for tag team bragging rights on the purple brand. Parker quickly took the fight to Lorcan, but pain remained the greatest motivator for the crazed cruiserweight. Lorcan rallied back and landed a Blockbuster to secure the win.

My Opinion: 3.3 out of 5 – This was a real smack in the Wojohowitz and I liked it. Oney and Chase just clobbered each other for a little while, like Perry Mason and Perry Como in a battle of the “Same Name Conflict”. I loved seeing the hard-hitting strikes of the European style on a show that is often promoted as specializing in aerial moves. Oh what fun it is to ride in Santa’s sleigh tonight and this was a fine opener.

Match #2: (Main Event) Jake Atlas def. Jack Gallagher

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

The WWE didn’t recap this match… for obvious (alleged) reasons.

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5 – This turned out well and was another fine effort from both men. Jack is gone after this, so his swan song was about as good as can expect during a time where we have learned about (allegedly) his many rape attempts. That being said, Jack’s legacy will be that he was a very talented wrestler who (allegedly) pissed it all away for cheap, vile sex that only he was interested in having. Atlas seems to be a good egg so far, so let’s hope that the investment in Atlas does not go up in smoke like the one with Jack has now. If you’re looking for a fair and even contest between two very talented people, then this one is for you.

News Of The Night:

  1. Indus Sher attacked Lorcan & Burch to tease an invasion of giants in the cruiserweight brand (kinda like the Team 3D war against the X-Division in 2007 TNA).

Final Verdict: 3.3/5

Two good matches were marred only by Jack Gallagher’s sexual indiscretions.
