WWE's new cruiserweight division started at the Cruiserweight Classic tournament several months ago, graduating to the main roster as a side attraction on Monday Night Raw, but while they're still officially part of the Raw brand, they've now upgraded to tonight's premiere of their version own show, 205 Live! New superstars are expected to debut while others who have already established themselves like T.J. Perkins, Rich Swann, Noam Dar and the current champion Brian Kendrick will surely be in the mix as well.
Austin Aries is also on the commentary team with Mauro and Corey Graves.
They begin by introducing every member of the 205 Live roster.
VIDEO PACKAGE: They play a video package for the Bollywood Boyz.
MATCH: The Bollywood Boyz vs. Drew Gulak & Tony Nese
RESULTS: The Bollywood Boyz win via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: The Bollywood Boyz seem like awesome dudes, but I have a hard time getting behind gimmicks with dancing.. I don't know why, but I've never liked them. Hence my dislike for Rich Swann. Hopefully, the more I see of these guys the more I'm going to like them. But only time will tell us.
PROMO (In-Ring): Gulak & Nese say that the ring conditions were too poor, and cite that as the reason for their loss. Saying they shouldn't be expected to work in those conditions.
VIDEO PACKAGE: They play a video package for Noam Dar.
PROMO (Backstage): Tom Phillips asks Brian Kendrick about his match coming up with Rich Swann. He says that if you're a betting man then you should bet on him. Rich Swann is a betting man, he takes risks, but when he makes a mistake he is going to capitalize on it. Then TJ Perkins comes in and says that he is still owed a rematch, and he will hunt him down if he wins and possibly be removed from the title picture if he loses. So he wishes him good luck.
MATCH: Ariya Daivari vs. Jack Gallagher
RESULTS: Jack Gallagher wins via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I fell in love with Jack Gallagher during the CWC, and I'm so happy to see him back! Great character, great in ring work, and an all around entertaining guy.
VIDEO PACKAGE: They play a video package for Lince Dorado.
VIDEO PACKAGE: They play a video package for Rich Swann outlining his heartbreaks and challenges in his journey to where he is today.
CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Brian Kendrick (c) vs. Rich Swann
RESULTS: Rich Swann wins via pinfall to become the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
THOUGHTS: This was a flashback to the CWC. Give any two men on this roster an ample amount of time, and they will blow the roof off any building. I definitely don't like the result, but damn. What a match. Kudos to both men.
PROMO (In-Ring): An emotional Rich Swann fights through tears and thanks his mother who died when he was 16 years old, and says that this win was for her.
PROMO (In-Ring): Tom Phillips asks Brian Kendrick how he is feeling after his loss, and he says he didn't lose but he was robbed. TJ Perkins playing mind games, and says that Rich Swann as champion won't last long.
