Honorable Mention: Austin Aries: Having “The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived” on the show, even as a commentator first, gives the show instant credibility. Calling the Bollywood Boyz Herf and Derf and saying they slept in bunk beds until they were 22 were great ways for him to get settled in behind the mic.
5: Drew Gulak and Tony Nese: Don’t let their loss fool you. These guys are the real deal.
4: The Bollywood Boyz: The only tag team on 205 Live, they’ve definitely found a niche that can allow them to grow in the WWE.
3: Jack Gallagher: His win over Daivari was a great introduction to “The Extraordinary Gentleman.
2: Brian Kendrick: A wonderful heel, Kendrick did an excellent job, even in defeat, of making Swann look incredible.
1: Rich Swann: His win over Brian Kendrick does a great job of ensuring that 205 Live will be much like what Swann brings to the ring every time he steps in, a fun and unpredictable experience.
