Kalisto def. Ariya Daivari
In the wake of WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore’s clause stating none of the Cruiserweights could touch him, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle revealed those rules do not apply to the latest Cruiserweight to join the division – former United States Champion Kalisto.
The lucha sensation took down The Certified G on Raw and prepared to make his WWE 205 Live debut. Before Kalisto battled Ariya Daivari, he attempted to address the WWE Universe, but he was interrupted by the WWE Cruiserweight Champion. The two Cruiserweights traded barbs with The Realest Champ in the Room taking issue with all his haters. After expressing his feelings about the “Zo Show,” Enzo introduced his lone ally, Ariya Daivari.
Despite attacking aggressively as the opening bell rang, Daivari soon found himself on the defensive, trying to counter Kalisto’s incredible speed. The Persian Lion eventually regained control and welcomed the masked Superstar with relentless strikes.
Relying on resilience and his innovative arsenal, Kalisto battled back to score a near-fall, but he lost momentum once more attempting the Salida del Sol. That resulted in Daivari nearly securing the win following a Frog Splash. However, not letting his WWE 205 Live debut be spoiled, Kalisto recovered, this time successfully executing the incredible Salida del Sol for the 1-2-3.
