Last week on WWE 205 Live, Hideo Itami and Akira Tozawa defeated Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik in tag team action. Following the victory, Itami stood over Metalik, and that did not sit well with Lince Dorado. The two exchanged unpleasantries before being separated, the tension did not subside, and The Golden Lynx and Itami squared off on WWE 205 Live.
Known for his hard-hitting and aggressive style, Itami immediately took the fight to his opponent, leveraging early momentum to keep Dorado on the defensive. The Puerto Rican luchador eventually countered by tossing Itami from the ring, giving him the opening needed to take control.
With an offensive onslaught in full swing, The Golden Lynx relied on his incredible agility and high-flying ability to maintain the edge against his Japanese opponent. However, Itami battled back, stopping Dorado in his track with a perfectly timed knee strike and a boot to the face. Despite the shift in momentum, the two competitors exchanged slaps before engaging in a sequence of back-and-forth attacks that left both Cruiserweights reeling.
Once again dumped to the outside, Itami jawed with Kalisto and Gran Metalik before shoving The King of the Ropes. Metalik responded by driving Itami into the ring, forcing the official to throw out the match.Back inside the ring, Dorado and Itami again exchanged words before being separated by Kalisto and Tozawa, as the animosity nearly boiled over.
