I loved Roddy vs Itami this week on 205 Live! It’s really cool to see Roddy on 205 and I’m glad he advanced in the CW title tournament. I’d love if he won. I’d really recommend you check this match out on the network if you haven’t already. One of the best non PPV matches I’ve seen WWE do in a good while
last tuesday was the first 205 Live show ive watched in a while (probably since November or October) and it felt like a completely different show (the only thing the same was the deadass crowd). why? they served the two steaks in actual hotplates, Kalisto vs Lince Dorado really showed off the lucha libre style with a lot of highflying and ‘at the edges’ moves, Roddy vs Itami on the other hand had a different style. instead of just relying on the highflying moves on the cruiserweight division, this time they actually served us a more of a hard hitting style in a fast pace and i dig that! props to Spud for making a huge improvement of this show which was in their lowest point considering the fact that they lost the cruiserweight champion. face it, we didnt need it enzo to make 205 live “relevant to watch” lol.
The reboot of 205Live has been magnificent. Vince supposedly step back and Triple H has control of the show now. The division has a General Manager in RockStar Spud (now Drake Maverick), putting on a CWC 2.0 for the vacant belt that ends at Mania. Cedric/Metalik was fun, Bate/TJP was an awesome mash of styles, Kalisto/Doardo put on a great and out of seat match and Roderick/Itami was quality. Next week we got Andrews/Tozawa & Gulak/Nese. Can’t wait to see how this tournament ends and who gets the strap at Mania.
With #HHH apparently taking over booking duties for #205Live , should #Neville , reconsider his decision to leave #WWE ? If 205 Live continues emphasis on in ring quality, there are some fresh match ups for him, including #HideoItami , #RoderickStrong , and maybe #Ricochet soon. If he's just riding out his contract, hopefully he doesn't rule out an on air WWE return.
