    Live From the 205 (10/30/20): Solid Storytelling Live

    Curt Stallion and Ariya Daivari on WWE 205 Live

    What's good, mga ka-205? This week's episode has a couple of solid matches that, as always, drive a couple of B-side stories forward.

    Curt Stallion finally wins

    After two weeks of getting clowned by Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese, newcomer Curt Stallion finally secures his spot on 205 Live by beating Daivari rather clean this week. As I mentioned previously, I look forward more to what Stallion could bring to the division than Ashante "Thee" Adonis (try as I might to really like him).

    Another loss and Stallion would've been facing an uphill battle to stay relevant, so giving him the win is a good move for me. This isn't over yet, not by a long shot, but it's very much alive that I want to see what happens next. (Also, can someone from 205 Live get in the Cruiserweight Championship scene already? It's been in a holding pattern with Santos Escobar, Swerve, and Jake Atlas.)

    Brian Kendrick gets a new friend

    Just when I thought this Brian Kendrick story would be yet another one in which he turns heel on some hapless young cruiserweight, they take a different turn and have him establish a friendship (and possible mentorship?) with Mansoor. I was a little iffy on this story being this week's main event, but Kendrick, Mansoor, and Ever-Rise made it work.

    Of course, there's still a big chance that Kendrick is just buddying up with Mansoor only to turn on him eventually. I just hope that doesn't happen—and if anything, Mansoor should be the guy to turn on Kendrick, even though he's too much of a high-energy dude for the role. Also, excellent setup for this match.
