‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (Apr 2nd 2021)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel there’s a bunch of bull-s—t going on here. St. Vincent just pretended to be a horny mummy on Saturday Night Live. Why does she look like my son? Is St. Vincent Bernadette Peters? Is St. Vincent that movie, but in a wig? Is St. Vincent 205 Live, which we’re reviewing right now? Oh yeah!

Match #1: Mansoor def. August Grey

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After making a confident pre-match boast that he’s a party starter and a streak ender, August Grey clearly wasn’t sweating Mansoor, who entered the bout with a 44-0 record. The Life of the Party came within an eyelash of a win after dropping his opponent with So Much Prettier, but Mansoor bounced out of the ring after the impact. Grey was about to claim a count-out victory, but he instead jumped out of the ring to break the official’s count at nine, stating that he didn’t want to win that way. Upon throwing Mansoor back into the squared circle, however, Grey found himself rolled up in the blink of an eye for the three-count! Mansoor offered a handshake after the bell, and Grey accepted after some hesitance, but he quickly threw Mansoor’s hand away and exited.

The Score: 7 out of 10

  • The Good: This was an excellent match. Mansoor and Grey got right to business and never let up on the negotiations. There was so much good stuff in here. I felt like a tube of toothpaste in a hamster ass when watching this. The action was fast and fierce, like Mathew Broderick when he ran that woman over. WHAM! Grey sold for Mansoor like his life depended on it. Mansoor somehow has become one of the best in the WWE and he doesn’t even compete on the main roster. Wow.
  • The Bad: How can this only go ten odd minutes? These guys are ready for the twenty. Give them the twenty minute match. Who do they have to kiss to get more time out there in that ring together?
  • The Verdict: These guys have the magic together. Let the magic be magical damn it! Quit making these cool dudes go ten when they can go twenty. Me like bouncy!

Match #2: (Main Event) The Bollywood Boyz def. Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Still winless as partners, Ever-Rise and The Bollywood Boyz decided to give it one last try, agreeing to call off the alliance if Chase Parker and Sunil Singh proved unable to finally claim the first victory for “Bolly-Rise.” The self-imposed ultimatum didn’t mean that Parker and Sunil were committed to following the rules against Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari, however. First, Parker dove across the ring to break up a pinfall attempt after Daivari landed a frog splash on Sunil. Then, Daivari picked up his gold chain that Samir had just thrown into the ring, and when the official questioned The Persian Prince about it, Sunil took advantage of the distraction with a surprise rollup for the 1-2-3! All four members of “Bolly-Rise” hugged and danced at ringside while Nese and Daivari threw a fit in the ring as 205 Live concluded.

The Score: 6 out of 10

  • The Good: Nese was the star here yet again. This time, he got the main event…in a tag team. Ariya worked hard and the Boyz gave their best performance yet.
  • The Bad: As a match, this was a bit weak, despite being solid as a rock.
  • The Verdict: The Boyz finally won one and it felt pretty good. Nese and Ariya lost to The Boyz and made them look very daring and debonair. I flipped a coin and landed on those two words. It was a nice change of pace seeing them win the match.

Final Verdict: 6/10

This felt like wash, rinse, repeat. At least the matches that keep getting booked the same way are of some value.
