by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and hot plates are excellent for soups! If you throw the spelling bee, you can go on an all expenses paid trip to the Seven Sisters college of your choice…with hot plates for your soup! We’ve got semi-heavy men fighting for nothing but nothing as of late, but it’s good fun buddy. So, let’s snatch-up those hot plates for our soup and enjoy 205 Live!

Match #1: Mansoor & Curt Stallion def. The Bollywood Boyz

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Even though they claimed a hard-fought win against The Bollywood Boyz, there were were no cheers, hugs, high-fives or even a handshake between Mansoor and Curt Stallion. Instead, tension lingered from Mansoor’s win over Stallion in singles competition last week, and Mansoor seemingly poured fuel on the fire during a pre-match interview when he essentially told his partner to stand in the corner and that he would only tag him if he needed him. Despite Mansoor indeed making good on his promise by refusing to tag Stallion on several occasions, Stallion tagged himself in to deliver a headbutt to Samir and pin Sunil after Mansoor laid him out. After the bell, the 42-0 Mansoor and the tough Texan engaged in a fierce staredown before finally raising each other’s arms and exchanging a couple celebratory (and rough) slaps across the chest.

The Score: 5 out of 10

  • The Good: This was okay. I’d wager that this match could be seen as a potato with a bit of butter on it. It’s good, but it coulda used a bit of extra butter. Mansoor continued to show how much he can progress from move to move in a given match. It’s remarkable to see Mansoor show how much he can offer. This entire match, while not thrilling or memorable, did offer both Mansoor and his partner Curt Stallion a chance to carry The Bollywood Boyz through the parts that they still can’t quite make exciting. Small miracles are worth talking about and you get them here, courtesy of Mansoor and Stallion.
  • The Bad: My balls hurt. The match was dull and it showed. Imagine watching a panda bear play with itself after farting really hard and you’ve got what was wrong with this match.
  • The Verdict: Not a great opener, but nothing to get upset about either. Sometimes just enough can be enough, for the most part.

Match #2: (Main Event) August Grey def. Ariya Daivari

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Ariya Daivari just might have to accept that the 205 Live landscape has changed. Though he and Tony Nese have repeatedly touted their superiority as the brand’s OGs, The Persian Prince has been engaged in a longstanding dogfight with relative newcomers such as August Grey and Jake Atlas. And while Daivari and Nese used nefarious tactics to claim a tag team win against Grey and Atlas last week, The Life of the Party struck back against the veteran of the purple brand. Daivari looked to have the bout in hand when he used the rope for leverage, but Grey stunned The Persian Prince with a rollup and placed his feet on the middle rope for a controversial victory.

The Score: 7 out of 10

  • The Good: Daivari and Grey really worked well together here. The hits were hard and the moves were sunk in like my cat after that car splatted his cat ass. Good pussy. Meow. Grey was quite impressive in his offense. Grey always felt like he could take the match at any time. Daivari was nothing to sneeze at here either, with his growing skills showing more still. The pairing of Grey and Daivari felt appropriate and proper, thanks to their consistent performance.
  • The Bad: Ringo Starr is here to whoop your ass. Make fun of the f—king drums will ya?! Me: Ringo! No! Ringo: I hated this stupid match…with its goodness! Pizza is stupid! Me: Shut up! Ringo: You shut up! Ringo: Make me, man who thought this match was lacking in oomph! Me: George Carlin was better on Shining Time Station than you! Ringo: F—k you!
  • The Verdict: As main events go, this was not bad at all.

Final Verdict: 6/10

Rapping pizza robots have brought us together to admit that this was a decent show that even I, a heartless bastard, can enjoy.
