WWE has announced the two matchups that will be featured on this week's episode of 205 Live.
Ari Sterling vs. Ariya Daivari will take place on 205 Live this Friday night. Also on the show, Daivari's tag team partner Tony Nese will face Asher Hale.
Sterling (formerly known as Alex Zayne) and Hale (Anthony Henry) are both new additions to the 205 Live roster. Sterling was part of the group of signees that joined the WWE Performance Center last December, while Hale joined the Performance Center this February.
Sterling made his WWE debut by defeating Samir Singh on 205 Live three weeks ago. He lost to Nese the following week but then defeated Hale on last Friday's show.
Hale's WWE debut was a loss against Cameron Grimes on NXT three weeks ago. On 205 Live, Hale has defeated Daivari but lost to Sterling.
In storyline, Nese and Daivari are the veterans of 205 Live who don't like newcomers to the brand. Nese & Daivari were most recently in action on NXT last week, losing to Hit Row's Top Dolla & Ashante "Thee" Adonis.
