Written by Brendan Wahl
1) Rich Swann vs. Ariya Daivari by pinfall in 7:25 when he hit the Phoenix Splash. This was supposed to be Swann vs. Noam Dar but Dar was injured in his match with Austin Aries last night on RAW.
Rich Swann hit on Alicia Fox as she was given some perfume by a delivery man.
Drew Gulak tried to lecture Mustafa Ali on the danger of unnecessary risks and talked about how they could start a grass-roots movement to make the brand a lot safer but Ali simply left and made his entrance to the ring.
2) Mustafa Ali def. Brandon Scott by pinfall in 3:27 when he hit the Inverted 450.
3) The Brian Kendrick def. Akira Tozawa by pinfall in 9:45 when Kendrick sent Tozawa face-first into an exposed turnbuckle.
Cruiserweight Champion Neville talked about the trials and tribulations that he's fought over the course of his career and then prepared to show a video about what 205 Live would be like without him: it's a blank screen because the show would be NOTHING without him. A Double interrupted to list the similarities and differences between them and noted that they will tear the house down at Mania. Neville got tired of all the trash talk so he nailed Aries and took him down; however, Aries hit him in the ear with the microphone and locked on the Last Chancery. Neville escaped with his title in a severe amount of pain.
