For the last few months, everyone’s been asking me, Daivari Dinero, where have you been? Well, as you can see, I’ve been on my boat, taking a much needed vacation. But a vacation with purpose. And that purpose was to let the rest of the 205 Live roster finally catch up to my greatness. And it seems to have worked, because out of nowhere, here comes this guy, Santos Escobar, and he wins the Cruiserweight Championship. And by his side, he’s got Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde, doing the best work of their careers. Tony Nese is now trying to get back in the good graces of Isaiah Swerve Scott. And our former general manager, Drake Maverick, is now an in-ring competitor. Joining him, we got new guys on the roster. Ever-Rise, Tehuti Miles, Jake Atlas, My Good Buddy Mansoor, and even on commentary, we got that idiot Vic Joseph and my close and personal confidant, Drew Gulak. So, I figured what better time than right now to officially announce that Daivari Dinero is coming back. I’ll see you all very soon.
