WWE 205 Live results: Kalisto makes his show debut

The Big Takeaway --

Enzo Amore's issues with Kalisto started the show off strong, and Kalisto began his run on 205 Live with a strong outing against Ariya Daivari.

Drew Gulak's PowerPoint presentation continued, much to the dismay of Akira Tozawa and Mustafa Ali. Ali blatantly disregarded the new "no flipping" edict, while Tozawa violated the "no chants" rule. Cedric Alexander got a more serious edge by attacking Brian Kendrick, while Kendrick's ally Jack Gallagher battled against Alexander in the main event.

Show Recap --

Enzo Amore's promo from Raw was recapped, then we saw the debut of Kalisto in the division. Surprisingly, they didn't even try to add in a crowd reaction to it. Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness hyped up Kalisto vs. Ariya Daivari and Cedric Alexander vs. Jack Gallagher.

Kalisto is back to his "lucha lucha" theme and McGuinness compared him to Rey Mysterio Jr. Kalisto said the cruiserweights are the hardest workers, leading to Amore coming down. Amore buried his outfit for being horrible, saying he'd be ashamed to donate it to the Salvation Army -- but he's a good guy, so he'd still do it.

Kalisto showed Amore cheating to win the title to further the idea that the important things for the division happen on shows that aren't this. Amore said that he'll give Kalisto his due -- he went toe-to-toe with Braun Strowman, but he left in the trash and hasn't done anything since losing the US title. Amore hyped up Daivari and apologized for insulting him last night.

Kalisto defeated Ariya Daivari

Daivari slugged away to start things off, but Kalisto sent him out with a tilt-a-whirl headscissors. Daivari punched away more in the corner, but Kalisto hit the corkscrew crossbody and his snap rana for two.

Daivari countered the Salida del Sol and landed a frog splash for two. Kalisto then countered a pickup off the mat and ended it with the Salida del Sol. We got a replay of the frog splash -- and it was pretty outstanding.

A replay aired of Jack Gallagher's heel turn and his beating of Cedric Alexander last week, then Drew Gulak walked backstage to prepare to face Mustafa Ali. Gulak's revamped news magazine-style theme is just perfect for this act.

Gulak talked about his Drewtopia and how Akira Tozawa ruined everyone's chance to see the remainder of his 269 proposals -- and if anyone missed his prior proposals, you can watch him on demand. Gulak got a "Yes" chant for the PowerPoint presentation and showed his new slide -- no flipping.

Ali's theme interrupted slide number nine, to the dismay of McGuinness. Tozawa further interrupted with a chair and his war cry.

Mustafa Ali defeated Drew Gulak

Gulak was kicked off to the floor before Tozawa did his war cry on the mic. Gulak marched around ringside with his "no chants" sign to further remind everyone that he is fantastic. Ali did a backflip and waved "Hi" to Gulak. Ali did a spinning rana that went a bit awry, but a crossbody off the top got two.

Gulak turned a tornado DDT into a slingshot knee strike for two. Gulak got a nerve hold, but Tozawa's chant distracted him -- so he turned it into a seated straightjacket choke. Ali hit a pop-up dropkick and a flying neckbreaker for two.

Ali ate a suplex into the buckle and Gulak set up something in the corner, but Tozawa's chant distracted him and he did a charge into the corner that missed. The 054 then ended it for Ali. McGuinness demanded that this loss be stricken from the record due to the flips.

Dasha Fuentes talked to Brian Kendrick, who said that Gallagher is busy thinking of ways to torture Alexander. Kendrick said that he feels bad for being part of the mob that was against Amore, and he should have been there for him because he too had a locker room against him once. Kendrick said he stands by Amore now, then Alexander jumped him and attacked his left leg.

Gallagher entered in his full suit and tie while Alexander came down to the ring with a purpose.

Jack Gallagher defeated Cedric Alexander by DQ

Alexander started things off with intense forearm strikes to the jaw before Gallagher attacked and went to work on the mat. A quick takedown got two before Gallagher hit a series of round kicks to the stomach in the corner. He furthered the destruction on the mat and undid his jacket, but Alexander sent him out and dove onto him on the floor.

Gallagher ate a nasty forearm and tossed Alexander into the barricade. Gallagher went under the apron and jumped Alexander before undoing his tie. He grabbed William III, but Alexander stood on it and cracked him over the back to give Gallagher the win by DQ.

Alexander tossed Gallagher around the timekeeper's area before tossing him into the announce table, with McGuinness telling Joseph to run for his life. Alexander kept beating Gallagher down before Kendrick limped down to help his friend.
