205 Live Results: July 10, 2018
After two weeks of anticipation, Cedric Alexander and Hideo Itami finally went toe-to-toe for the Cruiserweight Championship.

Kalisto vs Tony Nese
As Lucha House Party stood in the ring, Tony Nese came out to the ramp followed by Buddy Murphy, who was one week out from his barn-burning performance with Mustafa Ali.
A spry Kalisto got in the head of Nese, using his speed to avoid the Premier Athlete. The two men then traded handsprings and backflips attempting to avoid each other's offense.
Kalisto finally took Nese down with his handstand head scissors followed by a dropkick. However, As he attempted to launch himself through the ropes for a cross body, Nese caught him, setting him up in the corner for a kick to the sternum before landing a suplex. Nese then locked in body scissors around the Lucha Dragon while taunting the crowd.
Kalisto fought out after turning the hold into a pinning attempt, catching Nese with a kick as he broke out. Kalisto then rolled to the apron, flying through the air with a seated senton then a springboard spinning elbow. The former Cruiserweight Champion landed a series of kicks on Nese, then launched himself from the ropes with a springboard cross body. Nese kicked out at two.
Nese attempted to take down Kalisto, but the luchador rolled him up with a schoolboy kick. Kalisto attempted to finish off Nese with a running kick, but Nese countered, then countered a Salida Del Sol into a powerbomb into the corner, leaving the former champion in a daze.
As Nese and Murphy went to harass the rest of Lucha House Party, Kalisto dove over the top rope to take out Nese. Before he could follow his opponent back into the ring, Murphy took out Kalisto, forcing a DQ loss for Tony Nese.
