Chase Parker def. Samir Singh
Safe to say Chase Parker and Matt Martel are on the greatest roll of their 205 Live tenure?
It would certainly appear so, as Parker turned in another impressive performance for the outspoken tandem, claiming a Christmas victory against Samir Singh.
Samir took the early advantage thanks to a crafty distraction by Sunil Singh, who hopped onto the ring apron with the Bollywood Camera and began crowing at Parker. When Sunil continued to meddle, he was met by a wicked clothesline from Martel for his troubles.
The Bollywood Boyz attempted their own version of twin magic, but the referee wasn’t buying it, and as Sunil was being ejected, Samir tried to blast Parker from behind with a clapperboard, only to instead clobber Sunil when Parker moved out of the way.
Seconds later, Parker dropped Samir face-first into the top turnbuckle, scored the pinfall and joined Martel for some post-match trash talk over the fallen Samir. The pair even wished a Merry Christmas to Samir and left him with a Santa hat.
Mansoor def. Raul Mendoza
Raul Mendoza came closer than anyone to dealing Mansoor his first loss on 205 Live, but the resilient young competitor kept his unblemished record intact by outlasting the “workhorse of Legado del Fantasma” in an edge-of-your-seat thriller.
Santos Escobar’s influence was evident from the early portions of the match, as Mendoza continued to flash a newfound mean streak, repeatedly slamming Mansoor back-first into the ringside barricade and apron when the fight spilled to ringside.
After flashing a wry smile back in the ring, Mendoza removed his Legado del Fantasma shirt and put it on Mansoor, who responded moments later by removing the shirt and throwing it in Mendoza’s face before striking him with a pinpoint chop to the chest.
Mansoor finally got rolling when he landed an inverted atomic drop and spinebuster in succession and followed up by nearly driving Mendoza through the canvas with a bulldog from the second turnbuckle.
Mendoza briefly reclaimed the upper hand, but when he pulled the top rope down, a charging Mansoor landed on the apron, immediately launched himself back into the ring and leveled Mendoza with a unique neckbreaker to score the win.
