WWE issued the following press release announcing two matchups for tonight’s edition of 205 Live, which will be the purple brand’s first episode of the new year. Mansoor will be taking on Jake Atlas for the first time ever, while number one contender Curt Stallion joins forces with Ever-Rise to battle the Bollywood Boyz and Ariya Daivari. Full details are below.
The New Year’s Day edition of 205 Live will feature a pair of must-see matches, as Mansoor and Jake Atlas collide for the first time ever, while Curt Stallion joins forces with Ever-Rise for a Six-Man Tag Team Match against Ariya Daivari & The Bollywood Boyz.
Still undefeated on the purple brand and coming off last week’s hard-earned victory against Raul Mendoza of Legado del Fantasma, Mansoor gets another tough test in the form of Jake Atlas. Though he has yet to cross paths with Mansoor, Atlas has compiled an impressive hot streak of his own, having piled up recent victories over the likes of Tony Nese and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott.
Both competitors are looking to climb the 205 Live mountain and perhaps work their way into title contention, so what will happen when they meet for what seems certain to be an edge-of-your-seat thriller?
Ever-Rise and The Bollywood Boyz have been at each other’s throats ever since failing to secure a win for Tony Nese or Ariya Daivari in a Fatal 5-Way Match, and the tandems have battled in tornado tags, traditional tags and singles matches over the past few weeks.
Ironically, Stallion, who won the same Fatal 5-Way Match and had to brawl with Ever-Rise in the middle of the bout, will now team with Chase Parker and Matt Martel. Can Stallion trust his newfound comrades, and how will the dangerous Daivari gel with The Bollywood Boyz, especially since he and Nese rebuked Samir and Sunil when they offered further backup after the Fatal 5-Way Match?
