This week’s 205 Live features an odd-couple tag team pairing as Sunil Singh of The Bollywood Boyz and Matt Martel of Ever-Rise put their new truce to the test as they take on Ariya Daivari & Tony Nese. Also on the show Jake Atlas and August Grey get their proper singles match and we find out if Curt Stallion was able to wrestle away the Cruiserweight Championship from Santos Escobar on NXT this past week.
