Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

Honestly, I genuinely believe that 205 Live is the best consistent show that the company has atm.

That main-event between Jack Gallagher and Chad Gable was very good! It's easily a MOTY candidate from 205 Live

I'm not even a fan of Mike Kanellis, but this is probably the most I've ever been interested involving him (for now). He was part of a compelling segment with Drake Maverick, which was pretty well done here

Watching Akira Tozawa and Brian Kendrick interact as close allies is always a treat. I love how they went from being bitter enemies in 2017 to being good friends today. Hopefully, this friendship between both men continues for a while longer

No worries, I'll tell you which matches you can revisit after Buddy Murphy got called up

Here are some must-see 205 Live matches:

- Oney Lorcan vs Cedric Alexander (205 Live 4/16/19)

- Drew Gulak vs Tony Nese (205 Live 4/30/19)

- Akira Tozawa vs Mike Kanellis vs Brian Kendrick vs Oney Lorcan vs Ariya Daivari (205 Live 5/21/19)

- Akira Tozawa vs Oney Lorcan vs Humberto Carrillo vs Drew Gulak (205 Live 6/11/19)

- Tony Nese vs Akira Tozawa vs Drew Gulak (Stomping Grounds)

- Jack Gallagher/Oney Lorcan/Tony Nese vs Mike Kanellis/Ariya Daivari/Drew Gulak (205 Live 7/2/19)

Edit:

For the record, I left out Jack Gallagher vs Chad Gable (205 Live 7/16/19) since I'm assuming that you already watched it recently

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

Went back and watched the first Gable/Gallagher match from a month or two back as I know they did a sequel on this week's 205. Gable comes out to complete silence and then he basically gets buried immediately on commentary which isn't a great start but this was actually a pretty great match. I think I read somewhere they botched the finish? But I actually think it worked so well in context with the way in which the match gradually dissolved into nothing but an out and out fight and they so badly wanna keep ripping into one another but then Gallagher gets counted out so they have to stop. I wish 205 Live delivered more stuff like this.

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

So I just watched the second Gallagher/Gable match.

Gable is so damn good, like I forgot how good he was.

I don't think I have seen him wrestle in about two or three years, maybe even longer which is just insane. This guy is clearly at his prime and they are just wasting those years, this could be someone you could build something around and you're just paying him to sit at home, the WWE system is just absolutely bonkers. I mean if this turns into a regular role on 205 Live, at least they are using Gable I guess and this is an environment where potentially he would be allowed to be a top guy. However, just imagine, Cole v Gable for the NXT Title, Gable v Nakamura for the IC or v Styles for the US. Just my God, the sheer sea of incredible talent WWE wastes fucking hurts me man.

I mean I'd say the same about Gallagher as well but I also get that he isn't your “conventional WWE Superstar” but you look at Gable and that is exactly who you see when you think “Top WWE guy”.

In terms of the actual match, I mean just... man. It shows WWE can do it if they want to, I guess NXT proves that point. What a sequel, I wouldn't have asked for this combo without context but man these two are making magic. Structurally both matches were very similar with a lot of the same spots but they were just evolved in really imaginative ways. It feels like both guys have really sat down and studied their last encounter, coming into this one well prepared and with gameplans.

I wonder what is means now given Gable won both matches, I mean maybe he wasn't supposed to win the first won but he did and he won definitively here. I hope it means great things for him.

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

205 once again proving to be the best weekly show WWE puts out. LHP vs Mendoza/Carrillo was heaps of fun and Scott/Gulak was a great main event. Was nice to see Swerve get the crowd on side so quick and I would love it if he and Mendoza were on 205 on a full time basis.

Also, I think the biggest compliment I can give to 205live as a show is the fact that they actually have me excited to watch a Mike Kanellis vs Drake Maverick match next week!

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

Swerve's first night out and he got over in one match. His moveset is so impressive. A future star for sure!
