Jake Atlas vs August Grey on 205 Live
In the 205 Live main event were two of the Purple Brand's brightest young Superstars. August Grey and Jake Atlas traded the upper hand, with both competitors locking in various holds in an attempt to gain a slight advantage.
Grey's bodyslam was countered by Atlas, who pulled Grey though with a cravate hold. Grey fought out of the hold after a few minutes but was then taken down with a backslide pin for a two-count. Both were tired of the wrestling at this point and were ready for a fight. Atlas won the war of blows, rocking Grey with an ax kick. A neckbreaker dropped Grey for a near fall.
The aggression picked up on 205 Live, with Grey and Atlas trading chops and rights. A big boot nearly knocked Grey's nose off, and Atlas followed up with a series of roundhouse and a standing moonsault. Grey managed to break away, but was unable to escape the flurry. Uppercuts, German suplexes and more left Grey always on his backfoot.
A discus clothesline rocked Grey for another close call. Grey managed to get a surprising upset, though, hitting Atlas with a top rope crossbody.
