‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (May 29th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and the National Enquirer, Page Six, Globe, OK!, Us, People, Star, The Daily Mail, The Daily Mirror and The Sun, all true bastions of journalistic integrity, have agreed to herald my life’s story in glorious black print!

Match #1: Tony Nese def. Tyler Breeze

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

The Premier Athlete got an opportunity to get back in the win column during a battle against Prince Pretty. Tony Nese had been searching for answers since coming up short in the NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament and found his first one against Tyler Breeze. In a high-caliber 205 Live showcase, The Premiere Athlete showed why he’s one of the finest to compete on the purple brand with a crushing Running Nese to get back in the win column.

My Opinion: 3.2 out of 5 – This a brisk few minutes that was not around long enough to savor, but at least the taste left in my mouth was delicious. Nese and Breeze had some chemistry that was more towards the physical part of the match, but that doesn’t mean that these guys were bland like white people from Cape Cod. The action was smooth and fluid, with Nese as impeccable as ever. Both of these guys made the match worth the viewing and that’s splendid for an opener.

Match #2: (Main Event) Tehuti Miles def. Danny Burch

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Tehuti Miles proved a worthy competitor in his 205 Live debut against Tyler Breeze, and Danny Burch stepped up as another tough test for the WWE Performance Center standout. Burch has been on a roll competing with Oney Lorcan, but Miles was intent on notching his first victory and landed a surprise roll-up for the win.

My Opinion: 3.1 out of 5 – Burch really put this sucker through to the end of the race. Miles has potential, but Burch was the star here. If you’re a big fan of tight, intense European mat grappling, then Burch really brought all that you were looking for.

Final Verdict: 3/5

Short, quality matches with no junk in between made for a fun little episode.
