WWE 205 Live results: Ikemen Jiro vs. Ariya Daivari


Today, WWE cut eight members of the already thin 205 Live roster; given 205 Live is taped, and the left-hand seemingly doesn’t know what the right is doing, all of those cut still appeared on the show intro.

This is an entirely different show than it was this time last week.

Ikemen Jiro defeated Ariya Daivari 

Ariya Daivari was among the released earlier today, so this seems to be his unofficial sendoff. It was a good match, but what unfortunate circumstances it was under. 

The match opened with Daivari and Jiro going back and forth. Commentary mentioned Daivari fighting for “job security” after Jiro debuted; if only they knew. Jiro emerged from the opening skirmish with swagger-filled control. 

Jiro connected with multiple forearms but was intercepted. As Daivari gained a lead, commentary again referenced Daivari’s pay. Daivari landed multiple strikes before a reverse suplex reset the match’s pace. 

A quick sequence composed of a missed Ikeman slash and Asai moonsault left Jiro with a near fall. After Daivari climbed to the top rope and missed a dive, Jiro connected with the Ikemen slash; this time, the pin was successful. 

Grayson Waller defeated August Grey

Talk about a boring match. 

Waller and Grey toyed with each other in the opening moments by connecting with substantial moves that weren’t followed. The match slowed as Grey gained control of Waller’s arm. After holding Waller on the mat for a while, Grey was caught by a quick forearm, opening up the match once more. 

A massive kick to Grey allowed Waller to take complete control. After positioning Grey in the tree of woe, Waller stomped his opponent into the corner. Waller then connected with a top rope elbow drop for a near fall.

Grey flipped Waller with a quick backdrop before sending him to the outside with a forearm. Grey hit a tope which he followed with a crossbody; Waller tied himself in the ropes to prevent any follow-up. After Waller freed himself, he connected with the curb stomp, pinning Grey soon after.
