205 Live Review, 5/1

Why has Percy Watson been added to the 205 Live broadcast team?

HIDEO ITAMI & AKIRA TOZAWA VS. THE BRIAN KENDRICK & JACK GALLAGHER
Definitely a different pace depending on who is in control. Such a big contrast in styles, and it makes for a really enjoyable match. The faces’ style gets the crowd fired up whenever they pick up the pace. They’re definitely leading up to Itami turning on Tozawa to set up a match, they’ve now lost two weeks in a row and Itami is getting more and more frustrated. That’s a match I want to see.

BUDDY MURPHY VS. LIAM LOUIE
Jobber squash match stopped after a minute. Murphy must be a monster. Murphy vs. Alexander should be an incredible match.

KALISTO VS. DREW GULAK
Gulak’s counters are subtle but impressive. He doesn’t get sucked into a fast-paced match and just like last week uses Kalisto’s momentum against him. He uses submissions and counters to slow the match to a pace that works in his favor. When he ran at Kalisto in the corner, he got countered. Nigel pointed out the next time, “Look how he walks to the corner.” These subtleties are often overlooked, and it’s what makes Gulak such a talented wrestler. He gets roundly booed for trying to rip Kalisto’s mask off. The pinning sequences were pretty awesome looking, and it earns a “this is awesome” chant. Gulak hits a pretty cool counter into the Gu-Lock for the win. I think we’ll get a rubber match between these guys. I certainly hope so.
