Isaiah Scott, Tony Nese added to 205 Live Captain's Challenge match


All 10 participants have now been revealed for the Captain's Challenge match on this Tuesday's 205 Live.

It will be Drew Gulak, Ariya Daivari, Mike Kanellis, Angel Garza & Tony Nese vs. Oney Lorcan, Jack Gallagher, Akira Tozawa, Humberto Carrillo & Isaiah "Swerve" Scott (Shane Strickland). In storyline, Gulak and Lorcan got to pick their partners for the match.

Scott will be making his second appearance on 205 Live. Gulak defeated him on the July 23 episode of the show, with that match being the explanation given for why Lorcan chose Scott.

In April, it was confirmed that Scott had signed with WWE and joined NXT. He lost to Cameron Grimes in the first round of NXT's Breakout Tournament.

Before he confirmed Nese as his final partner, Gulak posted a video where he said that he didn't know who he was going to pick. Gulak said he doesn't know who is worthy of the spot and he doesn't know anyone who has made the same sacrifices that he has. Gulak challenged someone to convince him.

Nese responded by saying that Gulak was making excuses because he ran out of allies. Nese suggested that he and Gulak put their petty hatred for each other aside for one day and called himself the best option if Gulak wants to defeat Lorcan.

The Captain's Challenge match comes after Gulak retained his Cruiserweight Championship against Lorcan on the SummerSlam pre-show and last week's 205 Live.
