Before the action got underway on the first WWE 205 Live after WrestleMania, Vic Joseph introduced the newest member of the Cruiserweight division’s announce team, “Showtime” Percy Watson!
With a Tornado Tag Team battle pitting The Lucha House Party against Akira Tozawa and Hideo Itami set for next week, Kalisto and Tozawa – who have tried at times to maintain peace – collided in a battle of former WWE Cruiserweight Champions. Coming off a hard-fought defeat at the hands of Buddy Murphy last week, Kalisto aimed to reset course and build momentum for his Lucha brothers for next week’s contest.
The former WWE Cruiserweight Champions entered the match with none of their respective allies in tow, instead battling one-on-one in an evenly matched contest.
Reeling from Tozawa’s early aggression, Kalisto managed to avoid his charging opponent and take to the air, dropping on the Japanese Superstar. Battling on the top rope, Tozawa nearly executed his patented Senton but was stopped by a boot to the face. The struggle on the top rope continued and ended with Kalisto delivering a high-impact Spanish Fly.
Following a near-fall, Kalisto took control and took a page out of Tozawa’s book by executing a series of hard-hitting kicks. After several strikes to the chest, Kalisto charged forward but was leapfrogged into the turnbuckle. Escaping another Senton, Kalisto found himself on the receiving end of a brutal assault on the outside by his opponent.
Once again, Tozawa ascended the ropes and dropped for the Senton, only to be stopped by Kalisto’s knees. The two competitors engaged in a breath-taking series of near-falls before Kalisto executed Salida Del Sol for the win.
