‘WWE 205 Live’ Review (Nov 20th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s 205 Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we’re on our way to talk to Hannibal Lecter, as a part of our children’s series on Pro Wrestling 101. Unfortunately the interview never led to the kind of discussion of wrestling that I wanted for the children, but…what the… Hannibal: Your fist tasted like knuckle children, Mr. Nathan. Perhaps you spend your waking hours too devoted to one hobby over the other? What kind of personal life do you keep, young man? Are you a man of romance, or are you a circle jerk? I…OW! Nathan: What does it taste like now, mother-f—-r?!

Match #1: The Bollywood Boyz def. Ever-Rise

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Nese and Daivari’s plot for Ever-Rise and The Bollywood Boyz to help one of them emerge victorious from last week’s 5-Way proved unsuccessful, and along with it Nese and Daivari’s promise to grant them future title opportunities. Instead, the two teams will return their focus to tag team competition as Chase Parker & Matt Martel battle Sunil & Samir Singh.

My Opinion: 2.6 out of 5 – Well, this had some nice moves and everybody jumped around like it was tomorrow come today…hey hey hey. Hey! I’m allowed to be jazzy! Mess with the “hey hey hey” and you get punched in the face face face! Any hoo hoo hoo, our winners did their usual thing and kinda stumbled and bumbled their way to a passable match with Infiniboners, who continue to have the sleeper run of the year. The match is nothing special, but it lasted for a bit and made use of the time wisely with the basics.

Match #2: (Main Event) Ashante “Thee” Adonis def. Tony Nese

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Ashante “Thee” Adonis will square off with Tony Nese a week after both competed in a Fatal 5-Way Match for a future NXT Cruiserweight Title opportunity. Though both men came up short, Adonis continued to turn heads while Nese fell victim to Stallion’s victory-clinching reverse Spanish Fly from the top rope. The Premier Athlete will look to bounce back by turning aside the young upstart, and Nese’s confidant, Ariya Daivari, will join Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness on commentary. Can Adonis score a major win against a former NXT Cruiserweight Champion, or will Nese’s experience edge — and the specter of Daivari at ringside —be too much to overcome?

My Opinion: 3.3 out of 5 – This was simple stuff with enough gusto to keep you glued to the screen long after you may want to look away. This was neither man’s best bout, but it was a nice teaser of a match that will likely be revisited over the next several months. Nese losing seems to be his lot in life, but he’s so good at it now that he has to be bulletproof by now. Adonis worked hard to make the most of his match with the more experienced Nese, who pisses excellence by now. I gotta dance like there’s ants in my pants and we had a decent main event that was otay!

Final Verdict: 3.2/5

This was average to the bone but the bone was strong, so who’s complaining?
