Asher Hale to make WWE 205 Live debut against Ariya Daivari


This week's 205 Live episode will feature the show debut of Asher Hale.

WWE has announced that Hale vs. Ariya Daivari will take place on 205 Live this Friday night. Asher Hale is Anthony Henry's WWE in-ring name.

Henry was part of the group of signees who joined the WWE Performance Center this February. He formerly wrestled for EVOLVE and is a former EVOLVE Tag Team Champion.

Henry debuted as Asher Hale on NXT last week. He lost to Cameron Grimes on the show.

"Old guard vs. new guard” matchups will be the theme of this week's 205 Live episode. The show will also feature Ari Sterling (formerly known as Alex Zayne) facing Daivari's tag team partner Tony Nese. Zayne made his WWE debut as Ari Sterling on last week's 205 Live episode. He defeated Samir Singh.

Ikemen Jiro (Jiro "Ikemen" Kuroshio) also debuted on 205 Live last week, teaming with August Grey to defeat Daivari & Nese. Zayne and Kuroshio both joined the WWE Performance Center in December 2020.
