Drew Gulak def. Gran Metalik
Drew Gulak has a new approach to his plan for a better WWE 205 Live. The submission specialist has declared that his main objective is to ground all the high-flyers in the Cruiserweight division. As Gran Metalik prepared for the contest with his Lucha House Party brothers Kalisto and Lince Dorado, The Brian Kendrick and Gentleman Jack Gallagher made their way to the ring and joined Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuiness and Percy Watson on commentary.
When the opening bell sounded, Gulak immediately began using his technical prowess to force Metalik on defense. However, The King of the Ropes quickly turned the tables with his speed and agility to back Gulak into a corner. With momentum mounting, Metalik showed off his aerial ability, but a counter on the top rope swung control back to The Philadelphia Stretcher’s favor.
From ringside, Kalisto and Lince Dorado cheered on their fellow luchador, but Gulak’s targeting of his opponent’s extremities kept a rally at bay. The King of the Ropes recovered with a hurricanrana and unleashed a relentless offensive that ended with Gulak being flattened on the outside.
Unable to secure a pinfall, Metalik exchanged blows with Gulak, nearly securing victory by walking across the ring on the top rope and nailing his opponent with a dropkick. They continued to fight back and forth, exchanging near-falls, but Gulak took control by countering a high-flying attack from Metalik.
With his opponent dazed, Gulak quickly applied the excruciating Gulock to earn a hard-fought victory and receive a standing ovation from Kendrick and Gallagher.
