Well look what is back? Let’s get on with the show!
Video package kicks off looking at last week’s show with the continuation of the rivalry between Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander and Hideo Itami.
Commentary welcomes us to the show, then is interrupted by TJP. TJP rips on 205 Live GM Drake Maverick and the city of Omaha, then says to bring out whomever Maverick hand-picked to face him tonight. Out comes the returning Noam Dar, who has been out for several months with a knee injury and recently returned at the WWE UK Championship Special a couple weeks ago.
TJP vs. “The Scottish Supernova” Noam Dar
Dar immediately counters a TJP attack with a double thrust and a jumping roundhouse kick for the win. WOW!

Video package on the rivalry between Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy.
Buddy Murphy promo backstage. Says that if not for Ali, he’d be Cruiserweight Champion. Tonight, there is no rules from stopping him from putting Ali in the hospital. It doesn’t matter who is champion after next week, he’ll be waiting.
TJP refuses to answer a question about his loss backstage and leaves the building.
“The Stamina Monster” Akira Tozawa vs. Jason Strife
Before the match starts, Lio Rush comes out to ringside.
Tozawa with a rana and a snap jab early. Series of kicks, followed by a back senton. Strife tries to fight back, but Tozawa with a Shining Wizard, followed by the Top Rope Back Senton for the win.
Winner: “The Stamina Monster” Akira Tozawa by pinfall (Top Rope Back Senton)
Afterwards, Rush grabs the mic and mockingly says that was incredible and he is a fan. Tozawa is a former champion, but what have you done since losing the title? Looks like you’ve been waiting for opportunities, which is sad and embarrassing. You should be ashamed, I don’t wait for anything, I’m too quick and too good to wait. When you’re done waiting, step into the ring with the Man of the Hour and I’ll make you Feel the Rush.
Mustafa Ali promo backstage. Says Murphy is big and strong and dangerous, but while others run from danger, he runs into it. Tonight I prove that the Juggernaut is just a human after all.
Cedric Alexander promo backstage. Says that Hideo Itami is walking around entitled because of his past. I have done a lot to get to where I am. Next week, its Itami’s legacy vs. my legend.
