WWE 205 Live results: Akira Tozawa vs. Hideo Itami

The Hideo Itami video package from 2015 that aired this past week started the show off to hype his match with Akira Tozawa tonight. Nigel McGuinness, Vic Joseph, and Percy Watson talked about next week's Cedric Alexander vs. Buddy Murphy Cruiserweight Championship match being "the most anticipated match in 205 Live history."

Drew Gulak came down and we got a Twitter video of him saying he will prevail over a member of the Lucha House Party, and he'll prove that you can flip and dive, but if you step to him, you'll tap out. Gran Metalik, Kalisto, and Lince Dorado entered while Gulak looked on disgusted.

Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher made their way out and gave the commentators some drawings on a napkin while the House Party guys used their noisemakers. Kendrick and Gallagher joined in on commentary, with Gallagher lamenting being around "Vic and Percival."

Drew Gulak defeated Gran Metalik

Metalik hit a run-up arm drag off the top, but Gulak locked on a kneeling arm and kneebar. Metalik hit a dive, and Gallagher buried wrestlers in masks while Kendrick put over Ciclope. Gulak flipped Metalik  around with a discus lariat for two.

Gulak got knocked into the buckle for a rope-walk dropkick. Gulak reversed a victory roll for two. He followed up by applying the GuLock and winning by submission while also lifting Metalik's mask off of his face. Gallagher and Kendrick applauded Gulak for the victory. 

Joseph talked about how Murphy doesn't want to be the best kept secret -- he simply wants to be champion. Murphy said he can't be stopped and you can't stop the unstoppable.

TJP came out and they talked about how he's trying to go to SmackDown and move on from 205 Live.

TJP defeated Christopher Guy

TJP worked on Guy's arm before locking on a corner choke. Guy went for a sloppy sunset flip, but TJP kicked him and did a deathlock curb stomp before pinning him with a Detonation Kick. TJP talked with Dasha Fuentes about wanting to go elsewhere -- so he's basically doing RVD's Mr. Monday Night gimmick from ECW.

A Twitter rundown hyped up Alexander and Mustafa Ali having the match of the night on the Raw house show tour. Alexander chatted with Joseph about the roll he's on. Joseph asked if he's nervous to defend his title in his home state, and Alexander said that with his friends and family there, he can't fail.

Itami entered and we got an in-set promo with Tozawa saying if Itami didn't like him as a partner, he'll hate him as an opponent.

McGuinness discussed Itami being the apprentice of Kenta Kobashi and Tozawa training in the dojo. A stiff chop exchange went to Itami. McGuinness talked about how Toshiaki Kawada popularized stiff striking, then Tozawa got two off a senton.

Tozawa went for an outside-in sunset flip, but he ate a series of punts to the chest. Itami hit a seated kick to the back before sending him to the floor for kicks against the barricade. Itami hit the mocking boot after doing Tozawa's "Ha!" bit against him. Tozawa went for a shining wizard. Itami avoided that, but he couldn't avoid a cannonball senton. 

Itami hit a tornado throat snap on the rope before landing a diving lariat for two. Tozawa hit a tornado kick that put him into perfect position for the senton, but Itami crotched him up top and hit a super falcon arrow. That somehow only got two.

Tozawa locked on an octopus hold that Itami got out of by going to the floor, leading to the torpedo headbutt. The senton off the top missed and sent him into the corner, where he ate two basement dropkicks from Itami. The facebuster knee strike ended it as Itami picked up the win against his former tag team partner.
