Enzo Amore def. Tyler Bate
Making his WWE 205 Live debut, inaugural U.K. Champion Tyler Bate took on WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore as a result of their altercation earlier in the evening. Uncharacteristically – and perhaps knowing the challenge before him – The Certified G didn’t address the WWE Universe again, instead making his way to the ring ready for a fight.
As the opening bell sounded, The Realest Champ in the Room quickly learned what he was up against as Bate countered every advance from Enzo, twice removing him from the ring, much to the delight of the WWE Universe in Manchester. Taking the fight to the outside, The Certified G finally turned the tables by launching Bate into the barricade. Capitalizing on his newfound advantage, Enzo remained on the attack, taking plenty of time to taunt both The Man from Moustache Mountain and the WWE Universe.
With Manchester cheering him on, Bate battled back, taking down Enzo and doing his best to build momentum and pick up a victory against the WWE Cruiserweight Champion. In control of the bout, Bate was ready to take down The Certified G from the top rope, but Enzo countered – knocking his opponent to the outside. As he fell, Bate’s knee got caught on the rope, giving The Realest Champ in the Room the advantage he needed.
Taking advantage of Bate being stunned after the fall from the top, The Certified G moved the contest back inside the ring where he toyed with Bate before executing the JawdonZo for the victory.
Following the impressive win, an irate WWE Cruiserweight Champion continued to attack Bate, only to be chased off by his Survivor Series opponent, Kalisto.
