Tyler Bate def. TJP, Kalisto & Kenny Williams
Former WWE Cruiserweight Champions Kalisto and TJP, the first-ever U.K. Champion Tyler Bate and U.K. Division standout Kenny Williams battled in a Fatal 4-Way Match that showcased some of the finest competitors of both the Cruiserweight and U.K. Divisions. The last time Bate appeared on WWE 205 Live, he battled TJP in the first round of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament in a losing effort due to TJP using questionable tactics. Bate was looking to settle the score with The Fil-Am Flash while showing the WWE Universe what he is capable of.
Making his debut in a WWE ring, Kenny Williams joined forces with Tyler Bate early in the contest to put Kalisto on the defensive. TJP escaped Bate’s advance early in the bout only to escape the ring and wait for the right moment to strike. Removing the first-ever U.K. Champion from the ring and fending off Williams, The Duke of Dab took the fight to Kalisto and put the momentum of the contest firmly in his favor.
Battling Kalisto on the top rope, TJP counted a potential match-ending Salida del Sol by going after his opponent’s mask. This allowed Williams to strike and Kalisto to recover.
With Kalisto and Williams on the outside, Bate found himself alone in the ring with TJP and wasted no time unleashing a flurry of aggressive strikes. Hoisting TJP on his shoulders, Bate used the first-ever Cruiserweight Champion’s body to his advantage as Kalisto and Williams attempted to re-enter the fray.
The four Superstars traded blows before TJP managed to lock a submission hold on Williams. Incredibly, TJP countered both Bate and Kalisto and briefly held a triple submission maneuver before being overpowered. Following a jaw-dropping high-risk maneuver from the top, Williams built tremendous momentum and took down his opponents. However, as he dove onto TJP on the outside, Bate followed suit, and Kalisto flattening all three of his adversaries on the arena floor.
Despite Williams’ best efforts to use his high energy to strike – taking out Kalisto on the outside – Williams was stopped in his tracks when Bate knocked him off the ring apron.
In the center of the ring, Bate and TJP exchanged blows with Bate countering a Detonation Kick and securing a hard-fought victory following a perfectly-executed Tyler Driver ‘97.
