Humberto Carrillo def. Drew Gulak

Humberto Carrillo vs. Drew Gulak: WWE 205 Live, April 23, 2019

Drew Gulak aims to teach Humberto Carrillo the way to a better WWE 205 Live through technical and ground-based offense in a singles contest.

Annoyed with the state of WWE 205 Live, Drew Gulak told the WWE Universe that the WWE Cruiserweight Championship would eventually be his, but he had unsettled business with his former student Humberto Carrillo. Feeling betrayed by Carrillo and Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Gulak was determined to teach the Mexican Superstar a lesson he would never forget.

Delivering a message on Instagram, Gentleman Jack told Gulak that Drew may not have respected the British Superstar as an ally, but he will as an adversary.

As the bout between Gulak and Carrillo got underway, The Philadelphia Stretcher immediately put the Mexican high-flyer on the defensive with deliberate takedowns followed by obnoxious taunts.

As Carrillo relied on high-risk maneuvers, Gulak found an opening to knock his former student off the ropes and immediately unleash a relentless front of strikes and joint manipulation. Even as Carrillo attempted to battle back, he was quickly sent back down to the mat to be twisted into various submission holds.

Fighting through the pain, Carrillo battled back, once again channeling his speed to swing momentum in his favor and score a handful of near-falls. Carrillo came within an eyelash of securing victory when he connected with a picture-perfect missile dropkick.

Exhausted, both Superstars traded strikes, but as Carrillo leapt off the ropes for a springboard kick, Gulak caught his leg and applied an ankle lock, forcing The Mexican Superstar to desperately kick his way free. Gulak attempted a superplex, but Carrillo countered one last time and executed the Aztec Press to secure a hard-fought victory.
