Jiro will team with August Grey in what should be a spirited tag team bout against self-proclaimed 205 Live OGs Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari, who have made no bones about their disdain for fresh-faced Cruiserweights.

The Persian Lion has taken a particular interest in The Life of the Party in recent weeks, seemingly attempting to corrupt him ever since Grey broke the rules by using the ropes for leverage to claim a win against Daivari. Since then, Daivari has done everything in his power to convince Grey to take shortcuts on a more routine basis.

Grey, however, has stayed true to himself, and hes set to join forces with Jiro, a wildly eccentric competitor known for his fun-loving, flashy personality.

Sterling is set for a one-on-one clash with 205 Live pillar and former 24/7 Champion Samir Singh.

He might be new to the purple brand, but Sterling is anything but a rookie in the sports-entertainment landscape; the newcomer made a name for himself on the independent scene with his jaw-dropping arsenal of aerial attacks that must be seen to be believed.

Will Jiro and/or Sterling come away with a victory in their first appearance on the purple brand? Find out by tuning in to 205 Live, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else!

oh you starting a new one for may wish they could get the rock to do an interview

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 09:09 PM

:n: at WWE not bringing back the Giant Fist or doing any throwback style treatment for the stage for tonight's show.

erickman 05-07-2021 09:11 PM

like the suits though, was that what cole wore in the 90's

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 09:12 PM

:lol: at Paul Heyman's rendition of the 10-bell salute to Daniel Bryan's career.

erickman 05-07-2021 09:14 PM

tag match time

damn teddy you were suposed to give us a tag match

Think he wore mainly just a regular shirt or collared one back in the day.

Edit: Ended up misremembering what he wore back in the day. He did often wear a buttoned up shirt back then.

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 09:17 PM

:D Teddy Long.

:eek: at Long not making a random tag match with his big announcement.

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 09:36 PM

Cesaro vs. Rollins was very good despite the shenanigans at the end.

Guess Reigns is feuding with Rollins next since one of the Usos attacked him during the match. Poor Jimmy, first day as part of the Reigns family and he's probably getting kicked out soon via his dumbness.

erickman 05-07-2021 09:42 PM

theres our tag team

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 09:44 PM

Austin vs. Booker T supermarket brawl is still one of my favorite all-time moments from SD.

WWE's done a way better effort when it comes to doing throwback-like shows for RAW than what SD's throwback show has been so far.

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 09:54 PM

SD's women's division managed to somehow turn into piss break tier these past couple months.

The Natty, Tamina, Nia, & Shayna streak in recent weeks finally got snapped and the reward was a nothing Carmella vs. Ruby match.

Evil Vito 05-07-2021 10:00 PM

Lol an 80s themes throwback show when SmackDown started in 1999

This company is so lazy

erickman 05-07-2021 10:03 PM

the carmella ruby match was stemboat vs flair compared to the nia crap

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 10:04 PM

Going to assume Mickie James not being included in that roll call of past WWE Women's champs by Bayley was just WWE being petty again.

Yeah the way they've handled the "throwback" aspect of tonight's show has been all over the place and half-assed.

erickman 05-07-2021 10:08 PM

i wish the wrestlers would dress old school that would have been cool

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 10:19 PM

Dominik vs. Ziggy somehow managed to be worse than Carmella vs. Ruby in terms of being a big waste of time for a match.

Yeah. At the very least, they should have done a bunch of promo segments in the classic split-screen or mini-box style like back in the day.

erickman 05-07-2021 10:19 PM

crap time of the show

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 10:23 PM

:| Reginald vs. Tamina next.

xrodmuc316 05-07-2021 10:54 PM

Roman is the best!

Emperor Smeat 05-07-2021 11:02 PM

Reigns & Usos promo and Cesaro wrecking them all afterwards was great.

This week's "throwback" show was somewhere in between average and pretty good. Probably the weakest throwback style show WWE has ever done in terms of effort but at the same time it did avoid the big problem where the Legends and former wrestlers just overshadow the current guys.

Only stuff really worth watching was the Ceasro vs. Rollins match and the ending stuff with Reigns since the throwback videos are stuff you can easily find elsewhere.

Triple A 05-07-2021 11:49 PM

They should have played this theme for the intro....... (assuming they didn't)... the best SmackDown theme by far

Late 90s Raw theme also great...

He's the best heel in wrestling right now, imo.

They should have gone with this updated for 2005-2007

Cesaro kicked all the ass. All that needs to be said.

According to Ringside News and later confirmed by the Observer, Triple H's has been getting more hands-on with SmackDown in recent weeks.

Him and NXT lead writer Dave Kapoor played a big role in the production of last week's Throwback show since Bruce Prichard is currently on vacation and SD's lead writer wasn't around backstage.

In a potentially volatile clash, Hale will debut on the purple brand against the self-proclaimed “205 Live OG.”

If his past actions are any indication, Daivari Dinero is certain to hold the newcomer in contempt, as he and Nese have joined forces over the last several months with the main purpose of making life as difficult as possible for rookies.

Hale has been competing on the independent scene for several years, but he’s ready to take on the best Cruiserweights in the world and is looking to call 205 Live his new home.

Speaking of newcomers, Sterling dazzled the WWE Universe during his debut match against Samir Singh last week, blitzing the former 24/7 Champion with a dizzying arsenal and taking to the skies on several occasions to earn the win.

Sterling has every intention of going 2-0 on the purple brand, but to accomplish his goal, he’ll have to knock off a decorated veteran and former Cruiserweight Champion in Nese, who dislikes rookies every bit as much as his partner does.

Don’t miss an amazing edition of 205 Live, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else!

"The upstart Cesaro"

WTF is Michael Cole smoking :rofl:

Emperor Smeat 05-14-2021 09:17 PM

So Jimmy Uso wants the Usos to not be in Reigns group because of Reigns but at the same time wants to be the ones in charge of a group with Reigns in it?

erickman 05-14-2021 09:33 PM

is this the end of the nia beast

Emperor Smeat 05-14-2021 09:36 PM

:lol: at Nia & Shayna losing the tag titles because Nia's a dumbass.

Kept trying to fight off Tamina from doing the Superfly Splash but then decided for some dumb reason to go after Natty instead and hit a Samoan Drop right next to where Tamina was. Left herself wide open to get splashed and pinned.

Emperor Smeat 05-14-2021 09:44 PM

:lol: at Commander Azeez forgetting the que to get his medal from Apollo Crews.

Emperor Smeat 05-14-2021 09:48 PM

That "medal award" ceremony was all over the place in terms of quality.

Like WWE just cramming a bunch of people and stuff into a single segment and ended up being disorganized as a result.

Emperor Smeat 05-14-2021 10:08 PM

Ziggy vs. Rey Mysterio was pretty good.

:lol: at back-to-back matches tonight where the heel side lost because they had a brain fart moment happen. This time it was Ziggy yaking with the ref instead of being focused on Rey and leaving himself wide open to get the surprise roll-up treatment.

erickman 05-14-2021 10:30 PM

so is it time for another king of the ring

Emperor Smeat 05-14-2021 10:31 PM

This crowning moment by Nakamura with Corbin's crown would have been way cooler had he not just lost to Corbin moments earlier.

Emperor Smeat 05-14-2021 10:34 PM

Bit surprised the IC title isn't being defended at Mania Backlash since the stuff from earlier tonight had all of the making of WWE usual booking setup for a last minute addition to a PPV card.
