Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

OK I haven't watched 205 in months but the Gable debut had me intrigued.

Wow. He showcased a side of him I didn't even know he had. Him and Gallagher wrestled such a fun match. It was almost like watching a Japanese match at times with the crowd as they would be quiet but react to every spot respectively. And Gable with his Suplexes looked like a star and Gallagher is a beast himself. Even the countout finish to me was fine because it means this should continue.

Can't say I'll watch every week but I'll sure be keeping an eye on Gable.

And the the Fatal Four Way main event, holy shit, that was awesome too. That spot where Tozawa cannonballed off the apron into Gulak and Carillo hit the twisting dive onto Oney was awesome. They had the crowd in the palm of their hands through their effort alone.

Yeah usually the 205 Live crowd is kinda quiet and not really invested into the CW's but man did that main event wake them up and even got them chanting "205! 205!". It really felt like during this match the CW's won the fans over and is finally making fans realize "hey these guys are fucking awesome why are we watching this other shit for?".

The finish really fucking torpedoed all that goodwill though. There had to be a better way to get to a 3 way surely.

Gable Gallagher was awesome. Kota should take notes on that German. That's how you do a destructive German without nearly snapping your neck damn it

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

Could anyone make out what they were chanting as the show went off the air?

Also, better episode than usual this week. Two awesome matches to start and finish (shame both had screwy finishes, though I'm not sure the first one was meant to end that way? I feel like it was a botch, but even if it was it could extend the feud to more matches which on the evidence of that one would be no bad thing) and Nigel absolutely made that tag match in the middle. He really is the best

I really, really, really don't know why they insist on continuing to shoot this live after Smackdown. I mean is it really just for the name?? Could they not see the infinitely better reactions it got when they were filming it earlier during the MMC? Why was that not a good thing??????

I assume they want it on after SDL so they can sell the tickets for a bit more since they're getting 2 shows back to back when they buy tickets for SDL, its likely just that.

I do agree they'd be much better off at Fullsail airing on thursday nights or even before or after NXT.

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

I think the best thing for them is not so much to put them in Full Sail or anything but just have them before SD is aired. They did that when the MMC was on. And it made the show that much better. Plus being around the main roster gives these guys some chances for some PPV spotlight.

100%. The crowd reactions were so much better because they were fresh and not coming off 2 hours of being a Smackdown audience. Also, a lot of people leave the arena after Smackdown because of work/school the next day. It has been unfair to the cruisers sometimes when they have had great matches but the crowd couldn't give them the response they deserved.

I tuned out of 205 Live when Cedric and Murphy left, and we had a Nese/Daivari feud. But with Gable's debut and the Fatal 4 Way, the roster is back to featuring wrestlers I like- Tozawa, Gulak, Carillo and Lorcan... all of them would be great opponents for Nese.

And speaking of Nese... I've been on his case for being vanilla as hell, but that backstage interview he did on this episode might have been one of his best promos to date. Confident and passionate. Combine that with his stellar wrestling ability, and Nese might be able to turn my opinion of him around.

Great episode, glad to see 205 getting its form back.

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

In the main event for this episode they we're really trying out new camera angles during the match. I wonder if they testing out new angles before smackdown goes to fox they just testing it on 205

Re: 205 Live Discussion Thread

What a fantastic main event by tozowa and nese. Unfortunately lorcan can no longer be taken seriously by me. I'll forever be laughing at HOW DOES IT FEEL it was so wonderfully hammy but so stupid
