    Live From the 205 (3/26/21): Please Tell Me You're Pushing Ariya Daivari

    Ariya Daivari and the Bollywood Boyz on WWE 205 Live


    This week on 205 Live, the 205 OGs won and are apparently doing something different.

    Is someone from NXT creative reading this column?

    I sure hope so. After I complained once again last week about how being a 205 Live OG essentially means nothing, Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese beat the (suspiciously babyface) Bollywood Boyz in a tag team match. I'm really guessing someone is reading this because Ariya Daivari scored the pin and was a bit of a focal point of this week's episode, after I said last month that he deserves better.


    After this week's main event in which August Grey beat Ashante "Thee" Adonis, Daivari comes back out and raises Grey's arm, seemingly wanting to be friends with the young blood. I don't know where this is headed, but this seems like a most interesting development after weeks of eating pins from the rookies. At the very least, I hope it's them trying to ditch the OG gimmick.

    Not much else I can say about this week's episode other than the tag team match was pretty solid and should've closed the show, but I figured they wanted to go with the cliffhanger of Daivari wanting to be chummy with August. Maybe Nese and Daivari can chase the NXT Tag Team Championships after Takeover? Sure hope so.
