Kalisto, Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado def. TJP, Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari

Kalisto, Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado vs. TJP, Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari: WWE 205 Live, Jan. 23, 2018

In a showcase of the high-octane competition, lucha libre sensations Kalisto, Gran Metalik and a returning Lince Dorado team up to battle TJP, Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari in six-man tag team action.

Looking to impress the incoming WWE 205 Live General Manager and show off the high-octane competitive spirit of the Cruiserweight division, TJP, Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari teamed up to battle a trio of lucha-libre Superstars – Kalisto, Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado — in six-man tag team action.

Making his own return after a hiatus, Lince Dorado kicked off the match against TJP, showing that he hasn’t lost a step and keeping the first-ever WWE Cruiserweight Championship on the defensive. The luchadores maintained the advantage against their opponents as questions remained about the alliance between Nese, Daivari and the conspicuously missing Drew Gulak. However, Nese and Daivari proved to be on the same page, as The Premier Athlete helped distract Kalisto, allowing The Persian Lion to knock the former Cruiserweight Champion from the ring, giving them much-needed momentum.

Nese, TJP and Daivari displayed impressive teamwork in methodically attacking Kalisto and preventing him from making a tag. Displaying his fighting spirit, Kalisto weathered the attacks, making the tag to Lince Dorado, who took the battle right to TJP. Dorado nearly secured victory with a near-fall broken up by Nese and Daivari. This prompted Metalik and Kalisto to spring into action and take out The Premier Athlete and The Persian Lion.

A miscommunication between Nese and TJP allowed The Golden Lynx to capitalize, stunning The Duke of Dab and securing the win for his team. After the match, TJP had a heated exchange with his partners, clearly upset over his continued losses.
