WWE 205 Live results: Kushida in action

Humberto Carrillo and Lince Dorado's victories to set up the Clash of Champions Cruiserweight title triple threat match were shown, along with Tony Nese's heel turn and reunion with Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak.

Vic Joseph and Aiden English announced that Nigel McGuinness will no longer be on the 205 Live commentary team due to NXT going live next week. Dio Maddin is his replacement. He joked about not being 205 lb since sixth grade.

Akira Tozawa and Brian Kendrick came out to face Jack Gallagher and his mystery partner -- Kushida! As surreal as it's been to see Time Splitter Kushida in NXT, it's even more surreal to see him on the main roster.

English talked about the Madison Square Garden fans being dedicated. The crowd did a mild Kushida chant. Kushida worked on Kendrick's arm a bit with some mat work, with him getting a cross armbar before Kendrick just escaped.

Gallagher tagged in and worked on Kendrick's arms more with a double-arm wristlock that Gallagher turned into a cradle for one. Tozawa came in and got cradled for two as Gallagher ducked a basement buzzsaw kick. Kendrick posted Gallagher, then Tozawa worked him over for two.

Kushida tagged in and hit a handspring elbow on Tozawa before landing a somersault DDT on Kendrick. Tozawa broke that up at two. Kushida put Tozawa's feet on Gallagher and punted his ribs before a brawl erupted on the floor. Tozawa hit the cannonball senton out of nowhere onto Gallagher.

In the ring, Kushida moved and caused Tozawa to take out Kendrick. Kushida then submitted Kendrick with the Sakuraba Lock.

The Singh Brothers cut a promo and said that the next time 205 Live is in MSG, they'll be on top.

Mike Kanellis showed up looking like an extra in Clerks in acid-washed denim and a backwards ball cap and complained about doing nothing. He said he needs to become Cruiserweight Champion to prove to his wife that he's someone.

Maria Kanellis told Mike that last week's win against Tony Nese was pathetic. Maria said Mike may have won, but -- per usual -- he did everything for everyone else and nothing for himself or their family. Maria said that until Mike realizes those victories don't mean a damn thing, maybe she doesn't need to be here.

Humberto Carrillo and Lince Dorado got jumped by Drew Gulak and Tony Nese as they were entering for their tag match. Ariya Daivari joined the fray, then Gran Metalik came out to make a save for Dorado and Carrillo. This led to a six-man tag match after Gulak accepted Carrillo's challenge.

Metalik hit a double sledge on Daivari before Carrillo came in and worked Daivari over a bit. Dorado attacked as well before Gulak came in and ground him. Gulak tagged Nese in for a big leg drop that got two.

Gulak came back in and mocked Metalik with a rocking slam that got two before Nese came in and stomped away. Nese got a long bodyscissors before tagging Daivari in for a knee drop. Daivari got a big "you still got it" chant, resulting in him bowing and showing more charisma than he has yet by just being a smug prick.

Daivari went after Carrillo, which gave Metalik a chance to land a reverse slingblade. Carrillo faced off with Gulak and bowled him over, leading to a moonsault off the top to the floor onto all of the heels.

Gulak ate a missile dropkick, but he sold it by rocking back a bit, so Carrillo dropped him with a second one. Everyone hit flying moves before Gulak landed a Tenzan driver on Carrillo for two.

The faces got the heels down for a triple moonsault, but all of the heels got their feet up. Dorado came in and avoided a Cyclone Crash and took Gulak down before hitting a Shooting Star Press to get the win. This almost never got out of first gear and was hurt by that, but they at least gave Dorado some chances to shine.
