205 Live to feature Triple Threat Match, Women's Dusty Cup Bout
The 205 Live Universe will have to wait a little longer to see the first-ever singles clash between Jake Atlas and August Grey, as Ariya Daivari provoked each of his fellow Cruiserweights during an interview and got the bout transformed into a Triple Threat Match.
Daivari Dinero hasn’t exactly been shy about revealing his disdain toward 205 Live newcomers, and he’ll have a chance to back up his claims of superiority now that he has forced his way into a bout against the up-and-coming Atlas and Grey.
It looks like @AriyaDaivariWWE might have bitten off more than he can chew! It looks like tonight on #205Live, it’ll now be a Triple Threat match featuring Ariya Daivari, @JakeAtlas_ & @AugustGreyWWE!

While splitting his time between 205 Live and NXT, Atlas has gone toe-to-toe with Tommaso Ciampa and picked up eye-opening wins over the likes of Tony Nese and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott.
Grey has also impressed in short order on both brands, teaming with Curt Stallion for a decisive victory against The Bollywood Boyz and taking down Daivari himself in singles competition.
For the second straight week, 205 Live will have the distinction of hosting a Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Match, as Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart are set for a first-round bout against Marina Shafir and Zoey Stark.
Blackheart and Moon form an intriguing tandem and one that will be teaming together for the first time. Moon has competed on Raw, SmackDown and NXT and is a former NXT Women’s Champion, while Blackheart has racked up wins against Raquel González, Indi Hartwell and Xia Li on the black-and-gold brand.
Shafir and Stark represent another new tandem, and they’ll undoubtedly be looking to turn some heads by scoring what many would consider to be an upset win in the first round of the tournament.
