This is going to be the first episode of 205 Live in a long time to actually mean something.
Speaking of which, we get a recap of the Dusty Classic matches from NXT.
LEGADO DEL FANTASMA (JOAQUIN WILDE & RAUL MENDOZA) W/ SANTOS ESCOBAR VS. THE BOLLYWOOD BOYZ (SUNIL & SAMIR) – DUSTY RHODES TAG TEAM CLASSIC TOURNAMENT FIRST ROUND MATCH
I know it is 205 Live and everything, but there is no way Bollywood Boyz can get the win in this one, right?
Has Vic Joseph learned what a GoPro is since last week? He does let the Boyz know that if they win the tournament, he will dance with them.
Nice touch to have Nigel mention that the Boyz are sons of an Immigrant Bus Driver to show the working class connection with Dusty Rhodes.
Surprised how much offense the Bollywood Boyz have got in this one but they are coming off as the faces here tonight.
Some rare miscommunication from Legado del Fantasma allows the hot tag for Sunil to come in and take it to Raul Mendoza.
Close two count for Bollywood Boyz. If this was on any show but 205 Live it would have been over 10 minutes ago.
Flying Elbow from Sunil but Wilde is still able to break up the pin to the amusement of Escobar at ringside.
Nasty looking double team from Legado Del Fantasma before hitting the finish for the pinfall victory.
MATCH TIME: 9:21
Fun promo from Dain and Maverick with him highlighting the new theme music he came up with based on the suggestions Dain gave Drake.
KILLIAN DAIN & DRAKE MAVERICK VS. AUGUST GREY & CURT STALLION – DUSTY RHODES TAG TEAM CLASSIC TOURNAMENT FIRST ROUND MATCH
Is Curt Stallion getting the character and push that Triple H and NXT had in mind for Hangman way back when?
August Grey wearing a Dusty shirt and a polka dot knee pad to honour Dusty Rhodes during this match.
Killian Dain really should have listened to the whole thing because the theme is just a heavy metal remix of the previous theme.
Took them long enough to mention Drake Maverick’s history with the 205 Live brand.
Curt Stallion is getting a little annoyed at the dancing from Drake every time he gets the advantage but Drake continues to counter Curt.
August Grey tags in wanting Drake to be serious saying he is ready and Drake takes a second to tag in Killian Dain which quieted Grey down a little.
Grey and Stallion are not having much luck having an impact on Dain.
Great spot with Maverick trying to tell Dain to dive over the top on Stallion and Grey but he just throws Maverick on them instead.
Dain just making Stallion and Grey look like jobbers on their own brand. Always a nice way to book a match and talent.
Really love how Maverick set up Stallion for the neck breaker by rolling him over to create the momentum needed to get Stallion on his feet.
Great work at improving the change after Stallion couldn’t keep Dain in the bridging pin after the suplex.
Maverick gets the pinfall on Stallion after Dain powerbombed Drake on to Stallion.
