Rich Swann vs Jonny Ocean Fans chanted "We don't know you" at Jonny Ocean who surprisingly took complete control of the match in the early stages. Swann soon hit back with a series of high-octane moves including a double-stomp to Ocean's back. He followed it up with a Rich Kick to an incoming Jonny Ocean. Swann then headed to the top rope and hit a Phoenix Splash to finish off Jonny Ocean
Ali then looked to hit his trademark Inverted 450 Splash but Kendrick took his feet out from under him before locking in the Bully Choke. The bell rang suddenly at this point and the referee tried to figure out who it was since Ali hadn't tapped. It turned out to be Akira Tozawa.
After a brief back and forth, Ali hit Kendrick with his trademark rolling neckbreaker for a nearfall. A frustrated Ali looked for a crossbody but he landed face-first on the mat. Kendrick capitalized with a running heel kick but Ali kicked out.
Ali acrobatically dodges Kendrick's clothesline before hitting a running hurracanrana. He followed it up with a crossbody from the apron to ringside as we got a shot of Drew Gulak watching the match backstage.
Brian Kendrick took refuge under the ring at this point before coming out and blindsiding Mustafa Ali.
On Raw, TJ Perkins seemed to forge an uneasy alliance with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville. The King of the Cruiserweights told Perkins that opportunities that should belong to The Duke of Dab have instead gone to Austin Aries. As the inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Perkins has become increasingly frustrated by his inability to reclaim his place atop the division.
After defeating Aries on Raw, Perkins displayed a newfound aggression and attacked A-Double, much to the delight of Neville. Looking to build on his momentum, TJP now sets his sights on another former No. 1 contender in Gentleman Jack Gallagher. Will Perkins’ hostile new attitude be enough to defeat the British Superstar, or will Gallagher headbutt some sense into The Duke of Dab?
Last week on WWE 205 Live, Rich Swann revealed that he has been responsible for sending couriers bearing various gifts to Noam Dar’s girlfriend, Alicia Fox. Dar previously claimed that he had been sending the gifts, smoothly helping to deliver them while being completely ignorant about what each of them were. Though it has certainly helped The Scottish Supernova’s standing with his leading lady, Swann’s confession certainly raises some questions.
Sidelined with an injury in recent weeks, Dar has been unable to refute the former Cruiserweight Champion’s claims. However, could last week’s revelation be enough to prompt the return of Dar to WWE 205 Live? How will he respond to Swann and, more importantly, how will he explain everything to Alicia Fox?
