Lince Dorado def. Humberto Carrillo
Citing Lince Dorado’s comments about lack of opportunities, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick decided that the battle between Dorado and Humberto Carrillo would have a huge stipulation: If The Golden Lynx defeated Carrillo, he would be added to the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match at WWE Clash of Champions.
Carrillo took control with his incredible aerial ability, but sliding to the outside resulted in the Mexican Superstar falling victim to an incredible diving DDT from The Lucha House Party’s resident hothead.
The Golden Lynx pounced and used a more technical strategy to keep Carrillo grounded. As Carrillo broke his opponent’s holds, he was met by a huge kick and spinning heel kick that put momentum right back in Dorado’s favor. Looking for a high-impact strike on the top rope, Dorado was fended off, and Carrillo found himself back in the fight following a huge missile dropkick. Favoring his chest, Carrillo did his best to manage his pain by keeping pressure on The Golden Lynx and drawing an ovation from the WWE Universe following a huge twisting dive to the outside.
Carrillo attempted to capitalize, but Dorado found a second wind and mounted an incredible counter-offense that ended with a reverse hurricanrana, spiking Carrillo into the mat. However, it still wasn’t enough to put Carrillo away. Dorado delivered precision chops, and Carrillo drove his opponent to the canvas with an incredible sit-down powerbomb.
A flurry of punches, chops and kicks left the WWE Universe on the edge of their seats. Barely escaping the ring following a Shooting Star Press, Carrillo struggled to regain control, allowing Dorado to execute a hurricanrana and keep Carrillo’s shoulders down for the win.
As Dorado celebrated his first WWE Cruiserweight Championship opportunity, he was attacked by Drew Gulak, who unloaded on his newest challenger. As Carrillo exited the ring to come to the aid of The Golden Lynx, Tony Nese came out of nowhere and decimated the Mexican Superstar. From there, Gulak and Nese appeared to rekindle their friendship and dismantled Carrillo and Dorado.
