Isaiah “Swerve” Scott def. Ariya Daivari
Earlier in the day, Ariya Daivari sent out a Twitter challenge to any of the current or new Superstars of WWE 205 Live to step inside the ring with him. He was especially looking to reset after his loss in last week’s Triple Threat Match against Tony Nese and Oney Lorcan. One of the Cruiserweight division’s newest competitors answered the call, and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott was determined to impress on his first night as an official member of the WWE 205 Live roster.
Scott has been building a great deal of momentum in recent weeks on WWE NXT, but Daivari quickly went on the attack, looking to welcome “Swerve” to WWE 205 Live in his own brutal way. However, the speed of Scott quickly turned the match in his favor and left Daivari reeling and resorting to a much more aggressive approach, using the environment in and outside the ring to his advantage.
The Persian Lion maintained his aggressiveness, but “Swerve” put his resilience on display and used his innovative attack to decimate his opponent.
Daivari struck back, and the two Superstars exchanged strikes back and forth. As Daivari attempted his Hammerlock Lariat, “Swerve” countered and took down his opponent with a huge kick to secure the win.
