– The Hype Bro’s, Jinder Mahal and Shinsuke Nakaumra will join Renee Young and JBL on Talking Smack
– We get a video package about Mustafa Ali which is suddenly interrupted by a No-Fly Zone ad from Drew Gulak. Drew says that he stands for the WWE Universe and a better 205 Live. Next week Mustafa Ali will take on Drew Gualk. Also Jack Gallagher will go one on one against Tony Nese.
Austin Aries, Tony Nese and Jack Gallagher In-Ring Promo:
It’s good to be back in New Orleans and in the center of a WWE Ring. Aries thought this moment might have been different. He would’ve been in this ring as the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion, but that’s not the case. Aries won’t play the whoa is me card. When it counted the most, he didn’t get the job done. That’s okay because he’s been in the position before. You have to work hard and keep going until you get the job done. There are more questions than answers for Austin Aries. Is he injured? Is he taking time off? After months of dealing with Neville and TJ Perkins, he has some knee and neck issues, so he’s informed everybody that he’s not medically cleared to wrestle.
Tony Nese comes out to interrupt Aries. Aries doesn’t know what his future holds. Nese says that Aries future should be getting out of that ring, climb over that guardrail and grab a seat while a premier athlete takes that ring. Aries should save whatever little dignity he has left by quietly fading into the past. The future is right in front of you. Nese talks tough, but the last time they were in the ring, he was making him tap out. What exercise did Tony Nese do to finally grow a set? Nese says Aries always had his jokes, but in his future, Nese doesn’t have time for Austin or his jokes. Jack Gallagher joins the conversation. Does Tony Nese know where he is? This is a town known for having fun. There’s always time for jokes. He can talk about the horse and the bathtub. There is one about ping pong balls, but that’s for a different time. If Nese thinks he’s the future of 205 Live and if we are to believe that he’s going to replace Austin Aries, that makes Nese the biggest joke of them all. Nese is no Austin Aries. Nese goes after Gallagher. Gallagher attacks Nese with William The Third The Umbrella.
"T.J. PERKINS would go out to this ring and take care of business the right way. Get your head in the game!" – @GottaGetSwann #205Live pic.twitter.com/vczW7UlB11
