Ariya Daivari def. Raul Mendoza

Raul Mendoza vs. Ariya Daivari: WWE 205 Live, Nov. 29, 2019

Raul Mendoza looks to continue his hot streak as he battles WWE 205 Live original Ariya Daivari.

After joining forces with Tony Nese for a tag team match against Raul Mendoza and NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush last week, Ariya Daivari set his sights on Mendoza in singles action. As a WWE 205 Live original, The Persian Lion has a territorial attitude toward the purple brand and wants to teach respect to newcomers like Mendoza.

Daivari Dinero started the contest with the advantage, but the speed and in-ring awareness of Mendoza led to a great deal of frustration for Daivari. Mendoza maintained pressure, diving through the ropes and torpedoing his opponent on the outside.

After pushing Mendoza off the top rope to the outside, Daivari regained control and taunted the WWE Universe. Daivari suppressed all of Mendoza’s counter attempts, even brutally hip tossing his opponent into the turnbuckle. The Persian Lion attempted a splash off the top, but his opponent rolled away.

Finding a second wind, Mendoza turned up the pressure and outmaneuvered Daivari with speed and agility. Despite a late flurry from Daivari and a back-and-forth sequence, The Persian Lion whiffed on his Hammerlock Lariat on the first attempt, but after countering Mendoza, Daivari executed the move and secured the victory.
