Prior to last night’s episode of SmackDown LIVE which emanated from The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, WWE taped the following matches for this week’s episode of WWE 205 Live, which will be aired tonight on The WWE Network at 7PM ET:
– Tony Nese def. Noam Dar after a distraction from WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy.
– The Brian Kendrick & Akira Tozawa def. Two Local Enhancement Talents.
– Gran Metalik def. TJP. Lucha House Party’s Kalisto & Lince Dorado came out with Metalik while Mike Kanellis & Maria Kanellis came out with TJP. TJP came out to Mike’s theme song. A brawl broke out before the match but 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick came out to calm things down. Fans chanted “AOP-Pee” at him. After the match, Maria came back out and distracted The Lucha House Party, allowing Mike to enter the ring and attack all three members with a steel chair. Kanellis & TJP stood tall to end the show.
Nick Hogan was backstage for last Monday night’s WWE RAW in Los Angeles, California at The Staples Center. Nick is the son of WWE Hall Of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan.
In a bit of a trivia from The WWE Survivor Series PPV Event, Braun Strowman is the only Superstar to represent RAW in The Men’s Traditional 5-on-5 Elimination Match in 2016, 2017 and 2018. SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon is the only SmackDown LIVE Superstar to represent the brand in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
