Tony Nese & Mike Kanellis def. The Brian Kendrick & Ariya Daivari
Reveling in the glory of their attack on Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch, The Brian Kendrick and Ariya Daivari addressed the WWE Universe, reminding everyone that as WWE 205 Live originals, they won’t allow the likes of Lorcan and Burch to show up and do whatever they want. They were also ready to make an example of whatever tag team they were scheduled to face What they didn’t expect was the unlikely pairing of Tony Nese and a returning Mike Kanellis.
A chaotic match unfolded, as Kanellis and Nese took down Daivari without realizing Kendrick was the legal man. During a pinfall on Daivari, Kendrick managed to apply The Captain’s Hook, forcing Nese to desperately drop himself and Kendrick on their respective partners to break the hold.
Nese nearly secured victory following a 450 Splash on Daivari, only for the pinfall to be broken up by The Man with a Plan. Kendrick responded by executing Sliced Bread No. 2 on Nese followed by The Persian Splash, but The Premier Athlete kicked out.
Frustrated by their inability to secure victory, Kendrick and Daivari were prepared to decimate Nese with steel chairs. However, before they could, Lorcan and Burch returned to the ring, and the distraction allowed Nese to roll up Daivari and score the pinfall victory.
However, there was no time for celebration, as Lorcan and Burch sought retribution for Kendrick and Daivari’s actions earlier in the evening. Lorcan and Burch dismantled their nemeses with steel chairs and stood tall as Kendrick and Daivari retreated.
As Lorcan and Burch stood their ground, it was announced that they would battle Kendrick and Daivari in a No Disqualification Tag Team Match next week!
