205 Live's team captains set up teams for war
On the latest episode of 205 Live, Drew Gulak managed to defeat Oney Lorcan, defending his Cruiserweight Championship once again against the Star Destroyer. However, Lorcan has two gripes against the Submission Specialist.
At SummerSlam, Lorcan lost to Gulak when hit in the throat while the referee's back was turned. This allowed Gulak to hit the Cyclone Crash. This past Tuesday, Gulak trapped Lorcan in the Gu-Lock after a back-breaking brawl. However Lorcan never tapped, opting to pass out rather than give Gulak the satisfaction of earning a real submission victory.
Due to this, Lorcan still believes he's owed a shot at Gulak's championship. So, here we are. The pair will battle one final time this Tuesday, with the Stretcher hoping to finally move beyond his psychotic rival. This time around, the two men will lead five-man teams against one another while choosing their partners over Twitter in recent days. So far, the picks have been as follows in alternating order:
- Lorcan: Gentleman Jack Gallagher
- Gulak: Ariya Daivari
- Lorcan: Akira Tozawa
- Gulak: Mike Kanellis
- Lorcan: Humberto Carrillo
Gulak counters Lorcan's pick with a member of Carrillo's family
Lorcan's third choice was the handsome luchador Humberto Carrillo. Carrillo has history with Gulak, being mentored by the champion when first debuting with the Purple Brand. Gulak decided the best way to respond was bringing in a member of his family and another spectacular luchador in Angel Garza.
Lorcan was a little upset about the decision to say the least...
There are two more picks left for both teams. With an out of left-field pick like Garza, one has to wonder whether Lorcan will follow suit and head down to NXT for another teammate. After all, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott was another member of the Breakout Tournament who impressed the WWE Universe and even had history with Gulak, facing him on 205 Live last month. It wouldn't be a terrible choice for Lorcan.
If not him, there are a handful of other Superstars eager for a shot at the champion. We do know though, of one man who definitely won't feature on the team. Sorry, Bugez...Published 18 Aug 2019, 06:22 IST
