‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (Apr 16th 2021)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s review of 205 Live, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and as a female comedian, I don’t want to be eaten by a f–king polar bear. That’s why I use Jippaney’s Polar Bear Repellent, for the lady who doesn’t want to be eaten by a f–king polar bear. Just spray one pint of Jippaney’s finest on your body and polar bears will avoid you like a priest around the parents of the child they violated. Jippaney’s Polar Bear Repellent: It’s such good s–t. Well, now that we have that out of the way, let’s get to the wrestling.

Match #1: Jake Atlas def. Ashante “Thee” Adonis

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Even several months after his brief rivalry with The Brian Kendrick, Ashante “Thee” Adonis still seems to be employing the veteran’s teachings. Adonis was laser-focused for his seesaw battle with Jake Atlas, who also came into Friday’s 205 Live hellbent on picking up another victory. Adonis yielded a long two-count after flattening his foe with a crossbody from the top rope, but Atlas rallied with his Cartwheel DDT for the victory. The Superstars also exchanged some choice words as Atlas celebrated in the ring and Adonis exited up the ramp.

The Score: 6 out of 10

Match #2: (Main Event) August Grey def. Tony Nese

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

August Grey, who passed on the chance to end Mansoor’s undefeated streak via a count-out and instead got rolled up two weeks ago, looked to bounce back in a slugfest with Tony Nese. Ariya Daivari, who joined the commentary desk, claimed that he was impressed when Grey used the ropes for leverage to defeat The Persian Prince several weeks ago but also criticized The Life of the Party for not taking a count-out win against Mansoor. Nese took control by planting Grey into the mat with a back suplex and dropping him with a gut buster. After the fight spilled to ringside and The Life of the Party once again refused to win via count-out, he reversed The Premier Athlete’s rollup for the 1-2-3!

The Score: 7 out of 10

Final Verdict: 6/10

Two nice matches made for a nice show. Nothing was ventured and nothing was gained on this broadcast. It’s nice to see Jake Atlas back in here. I wish we had more people on this active roster. Tony Nese worked hard to make Grey look skilled in the match and in victory. Not much may have happened here, but it was all in the name of simplicity, so that works for me. Well, that’s it for this week. I’ll see you next time.
