Daivari's Dinero Division
Ariya Daivari def. Eli Knight, Ariya Daivari def. Bobby Flaco, Ariya Daivari def. Jason Cain
Ariya Daivari put his money where his mouth his by creating Daivari’s Dinero Division and offering up $10,000 to any newcomer who could pin or submit The Persian Prince. Daivari quickly dispatched of Eli Knight and Bobby Flacco dishing out a Hammerlock Lariat for each competitor. The final challenger Jason Cain went on the offensive early trying to cash in on the opportunity. Cain put up a much tougher fight than the first two competitors, but Daivari was able to rally back and land one more Hammerlock Lariat to keep his status on 205 Live and his bank account secure.
Tony Nese def. Danny Burch
The last time Danny Burch squared off with Tony Nese an attack by Ariya Daivari on Oney Lorcan derailed the match and The Premier Athlete chose not to capitalize on the opening. Burch would go on to win that match thanks to Nese’s honorable but misguided tactical decision. With Daivari sitting on commentary for this showdown, The Persian Prince’s presence loomed over the match. The clash was an impressive display of skill between the outstanding Cruiserweights as Nese and Burch traded huge blows. Burch delivered a blistering clothesline to The Premier Athlete that almost locked up the match for the British brawler. This time Daivari distracted Burch and Nese didn’t hesitate this time and crushed his opponent with a Running Nese for the win.
