Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness welcome us to another edition of 205 Live. We kick things off with the first NXT Breakout Tournament Qualifying Match of the evening.

First NXT Breakout Tournament Qualifier: Guru Raaj vs. Andre Chase

Both men go right for a collar and elbow tie-up. Guru Raaj turns the lockup around with a wristlock. Andre Chase reverses the hold. Raaj escapes and goes back to his original wristlock position. Raaj goes up and over Chase and catches him with a massive hip toss, followed by a side headlock takeover. Chase creates some separation by throwing Raaj towards the ropes. Following that, Raaj and Chase trade blows. Raaj gets the better end of the bargain with a monkey flip from out of the corner. Raaj looks for the first pin in the match. Chase kicks out at two.

Chase uses the ropes as an assist. The rope hits Raaj right on his Adam’s apple. The fans chant in unison towards Chase that he sucks. Chase continues his versatile offense, but it still isn’t enough for a pinfall victory. Chase tries to cut of Raaj’s breathing with a straitjacket hold. Back on their feet, Chase hits a ripcord short-armed lariat. After taking some brutal shots, Raaj finds his footing again with a running bulldog. Raaj looks for a cover. Chase kicks out at two. Chase breaks Raaj’s hard-fought energy with a rolling elbow, followed by a huge DDT. Chase then concludes the match with a brainbuster for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Andre Chase

– The NXT Breakout Tournament Qualifying matches will continue next week here on 205 Live!

And now, the main event!

Second NXT Breakout Tournament Qualifier: Desmond Troy vs. Joe Gacy

Joe Gacy and Desmond Troy tangle up in lockup. Gacy backs Troy into the corner. The fans are split down the middle on who they’re rooting for. Trey leapfrogs over Gacy and stacks him up for a pin. Gacy pops free at two. Troy lays his hands on Gacy. Gacy responds with a heavy forearm. Troy traps Gacy in an armbar. Back on their feet, Gacy breaks out of the hold with a standing switch. Troy comes off the ropes with a nice shoulder tackle. Troy tries to go for the same move again, but Gacy traps him in a suplex. Gacy looks for a cover, and Troy kicks out.

Gacy clobbers Troy with a flurry of short-arm clothesline, but it isn’t enough yet to pick up the win. Gacy shifts his focus on Troy’s neck by twisting his head side to side. Troy starts to fight back with a big flying clothesline from off the ropes. Troy lands a perfect northern lights suplex/pin for just a 2.8 count! The fans yell out, “That was three.” Troy sends Gacy face-first with two gut-wrench suplexes! Cover. Gacy kicks out! Both men trade heavy punches. Gacy drops Troy with a Urangi. Gacy ends the match with a handspring/lariat combination that sends Troy inside out. Gacy hooks a pin for one last time. 1-2-3. Gacy seals his fate by advancing to the next round.

Winner: Joe Gacy

Andre Chase and Joe Gacy have now advanced to the next round!

From all of us here at Wrestling Inc., we wish our American viewers a safe and enjoyable 4th of July weekend!
