WWE 205 Live returns to WWE Network tonight (April 23, 2019), live on Tuesday nights, with a show from the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Advertised for tonight: Drew Gulak is determined to teach Humberto Carrillo how to be a proper ground-based grappler, but his methods have driven a rift between the Philadelphia Stretcher and his partner, Gentleman Jack Gallagher. Gulak and Carrillo go one-on-one tonight, and all eyes will be on how the Brit responds.
Come right back here at 10 p.m. ET. We’ll update all the results from 205 Live live as it airs on WWE Network below the line.
Enjoy the show!
- Drew Gulak gets the show-opening hype reel position this week, talking about how he’ll be coming for the title after he taps Humberto Carrillo out tonight.
- Nigel McGuinness is out this week, so David Otunga joins the booth.
- Humberto Carrillo over Drew Gulak by pinfall with the headstand Arabian press moonsault.
- Oney Lorcan gets a promo about how he’s been training for over a decade to come to WWE and become a champion. Ariya Daivari stands in his way, and once the bell rings all he cares about is hitting his opponent as hard as possible, but lucky for him, that’s the kind of fight he likes.
- Daivari gets a matching promo about his success since changing his attitude and the undefeated streak he’s running all year. He doesn’t care who it is, nobody but nobody’s going to keep him from becoming the next WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
- Drake Maverick is chatting with Maria and Mike Kanellis backstage when Brian Kendrick rolls up. He blames Maria for his boy Tozawa losing last week but she says Akira had better look in the mirror. Kendrick again says he just wants to talk and Tozawa can do his own fighting and he was just the distraction anyways.
- AKIRA TOZAWA JUMPS MIKE KANELLIS AND BEATS HIM DOWN UNTIL REFEREE MIKE CHIODA AND ROAD AGENT SONJAY DUTT PULL HIM OFF!
- Ariya Daivari over Oney Lorcan by pinfall with a Pepsi Twist to become #1 contender to the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
- Post-match Tony Nese offers Daivari a handshake but Ariya simply says he wants the title, so Nese invites him to try taking it.
- That’s the show, folks.
