‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (July 3rd 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and cigarettes are bad! Tonight’s top story: Small dogs make tasty treats! More on this at eleven… Mean-hile, we’ve got more wrestling action with Tony Nese and wiener dogs go well with mustard. 205 Live starts…NNNNNOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!!!!!

Match #1: Isaiah “Swerve” Scott vs. Matt Martel (w/ Chase Parker)

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Isaiah “Swerve” Scott kicked off the Fourth of July weekend in style, pushing Matt Martel to his limit in a singles bout. In what was a brief singles match, “Swerve” blistered Martel’s chest with a series of stinging chops and appeared to have Martel on his heels. Unfortunately, Chase Parker suddenly pounced on Scott, resulting in the match being thrown out.

My Opinion: 2.4 out of 5 – This was way too short to work, but it also had enough kick to it to make you wanna actually see the good version of this.

Match #2: Isaiah “Swerve” Scott & Tony Nese def. Ever-Rise

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

For a pair of Cruiserweights that have been at each other’s throats for weeks, Scott and Nese gelled fairly seamlessly, using timely tags and several tandem attacks to bring the fight to Ever-Rise. When Nese received a late tag, he entered the ring like a ball of fire before tattooing Parker with the Running Nese and making a tag to “Swerve,” who sailed through the air with a double stomp for a 1-2-3 that was punctuated by a post-match handshake between the victorious tandem, though Scott still seemed slightly suspicious of his unlikely partner.

My Opinion: 2.7 out of 5 – This was a fun romp that stomped the clomp out of the bomp. Nese and Swerve carried ER, like when the writers gave-up after George Clooney left to be in that movie with Jennifer Lopez. There’s some nice crisp action and nothing here was bad, but it was lacklustre…like the Real Housewives Of What-The-F**k-Ever. All in all, this was a nice test for Nese and Swerve as a team, if only as a reluctant tandem.

Match #3: (Main Event) Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza def. Leon Ruff & Liam Gray

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

This is not the same old Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza, and nobody is more aware of their fact than their latest 205 Live opponents, Leon Ruff & Liam Gray. Sporting a spiffy suit with his prized NXT Cruiserweight Title slung over his shoulder, a smirking Escobar calmly observed the action from ringside as Wilde & Mendoza showed off their newfound mean streak and essentially dominated Ruff & Gray with a combination of savage kicks and some high-impact suplexes. The final blow? A vicious kick from Mendoza to Gray that resulted in Wilde scoring the pinfall.

My Opinion: 2 out of 5 – A squash for the main event? Kiss my ass.

Final Verdict: 2.6/5

Not much happened here and was not really worth watching…like every Super Bowl ever!
