The intensity between Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik and Hideo Itami and Akira Tozawa had gotten so high that WWE 205 Live GM Drake Maverick felt that only way to settling things was in the chaos of a Tornado Tag Team Match. Highlighting the tension, before Itami and Tozawa even made it to the ring, Metalik and Dorado attacked, and an all-out brawl commenced.
Using their speed and agility, The Golden Lynx and The King of the Ropes kept their opponents on defense, wisely separating them by keeping Itami out of the ring and Tozawa taking the brunt of their attacks. However, the hard-hitting and resilient Japanese Superstars wouldn’t stay down for long, as Tozawa turned the tide on both luchas and Itami quickly joined in on the offensive flurry.
Tozawa and Itami focused their attention on Lince Dorado, keeping Metalik reeling on the outside of the ring. The aggressive offense from the Japanese Superstars nearly resulted in Itami ripping off Dorado’s mask before they once again focused on a hard-hitting offense at The Golden Lynx’s expense.
The heavy focus on Dorado eventually backfired on Itami and Tozawa, as a recuperated Gran Metalik charged into the ring and leveled both opponents. Removing both Tozawa and Itami from the ring, Metalik and Dorado executed a jaw-dropping synchronized moonsault to the outside.
The match quickly devolved into a chaotic free-for-all on the outside of the ring that ended with Dorado battling both opponents on the top rope as Metalik recovered from being driven into the announce table. The King of the Ropes managed to recover fast enough to come to his partner’s aid and execute an incredible high-risk from the top.
With Metalik and Itami reeling, Tozawa and Dorado slugged it out in the middle of the ring with The Stamina Monster taking control and executing his patented Senton for a near-fall broken up by Metalik. The battle continued to rage and the Japanese competitors found themselves again alone with The Golden Lynx. However, showing his own resilience, Dorado countered a double team effort with a double springboard stunner, much to the delight of the WWE Universe.
Despite the flurry from Dorado, Itami struck and nearly secured victory until Metalik saved his partner and the luchas laid out their opponents. Freeing himself from Itami’s grasp, Metalik ducked a kick from Tozawa that leveled Itami. Taking down The Stamina Monster, The Golden Lynx and The King of the Ropes ascended to the top and executed two high-flying strikes for a hard-fought victory.
After the match, Kalisto charged the ring to celebrate the victory with his lucha brothers, and The Lucha House Party was officially underway.
