Dot Net reader Jeffrey Peter attended the WWE Smackdown taping in Denver, Colorado at Pepsi Center and sent the following report on the WWE 205 Live taping.
1. Lio Rush defeated Noam Dar. A very good back and forth ten minute match, which ended with a Frog Splash performed by Rush onto Dar. Rush followed up by pinning Dar for the win.
2. Mustafa Ali fought Hideo Itami to a double count-out. A good 15 minute match that ended in a double count-out.
3. Brian Kendrick (w/Jack Gallagher, Drew Gulak) defeated Tony Devine. Devine is a local wrestler in the Denver area. The match end in 30 seconds after Gallagher and Gulak distracted the referee and Kendrick kicked Devine through the uprights. After the match, the trio beatdown Devine to end the taping.
Notes: The west side of the Pepsi Center was all blacked out but the other part that wasn’t was packed again. The reason for the empty seats during 205 Live is because they tell the people that the tapings or show would begin at 5:30, but they actually started filming 205 Live at 5:15. There were no dark matches after the Mixed Match Challenge went off the air on Facebook.
