Issues between August Grey & Ariya Daivari have existed ever since Grey made his debut for the brand against Daivari. He’s facing down one of the original members of the 205 Live roster, someone who has made it very clear they don’t want newcomers like Grey on the brand. Tonight, Grey gets Daivari one on one, but still needs to keep an eye out for Davaris best friend, Tony Nese who likes to get involved in these matches.
Ariya Daivari Targets The Knee
Daivari took an early edge, shoving Grey into the corner but allowed the clean break. He’d go after the arm of Grey and slap him in the back of the head, before nabbing another headlock. Grey shoved him off but Daivari dropped him with a shoulder block. A teased superkick made Daivai flinch, allowing a slap to the back of his head.
Grey would hit the ropes and hit a running hurricanrana, before nailing a powerslam for a two count. A modified bulldog got another close fall, and Daivari slipped to the apron. When Grey would follow, Daivari used the ropes to his advantage, before slamming Grey’s knee off the steel ring post.
Grey was put on the top rope and put into the Tree of Woe, attacking the knee of Grey further. A twisting ankle lock and some elbows and kicks to the knee would further punish Grey, who threw some punches before being taken down. Daivari wanted to pull him to the outside, but was kicked into the barricade, and hit with some chops.
Back in the ring, Grey threw a big punch, Daivari dodged and hit a Chop Block to the hurt knee. Looking for the Figure Four Leg Lock, Grey would either have to get to the ropes, or reverse the pressure, but Daivari let the hold go to kick the leg. He’d be kicked to the outside, but the damage might have already been done.
August Grey Survives Everything Daivari Has
Grey would barely hit a Belly To Back Suplex in the middle of the ring, then getting a jawbreaker & neckbreaker. Daivari wanted his chain for a cheap shit, but on the outside was hit with a suicide dive and sent inside. Grey managed a rope walk Crossbody and then nailed a superkick, getting a two count.
He’d look for the Unprettier, but Daivari countered and went back to the Figure Four in the middle of the ring. Grey would roll to the ropes, breaking this before kicking Daivari off and hitting a unique twisting pumphandle side slam. Daivari would be propped up on the top rope, looking for the superplex but was shoved off and hit with the Persian Splash for a two count.
Daivari again went for the Figure Four, but was rolled up for a pinfall attempt. He’d kick out, and hit a big Uranage for another near fall. Finally, he’d try the Hammerlock Lariat, Grey dodging and hitting an Unprettier with an assist from running up the ropes, getting this big win.
