5/30 WWE 205 Live Report

The show kicks off with a slick video package, showcasing Neville's domination of the Cruiserweight Division over the last several months. The video then transitions to the present day feud between Neville and Austin Aries, leading into their submission match this Sunday at The Extreme Rules PPV. The major tagline used to cap off the video is "The Tap Heard Round The World". With the hype surrounding Aries submission victory over Neville on Monday's Raw.

Noam Dar and Alicia Fox head to the ring to open this week's show. They both get on the mic and rip on Atlanta and the friendship of Rich Swann and Sasha Banks. Dar refers to Alicia as his "fluffy bunny" and Fox tells Dar that he completes her. Noam mocks Swann and Sasha's relationship. He calls them friends with no benefits. Dar then talks about their upcoming mixed tag match with Sasha and Swann this sunday. Noam proclaims that true love will conquer all.....Rich Swann's music interrupts the couple and he makes his way down to the ring with Sasha Banks.

As Sasha and Rich Swann make their way to the ring. They call Alicia and Noam a "Hot Mess". Sasha and Rich say that they have a lot in common with each other, unlike Dar and Fox. Alicia snaps back at Sasha. She says that at least, she didn't get her bootleg weave done in Atlanta. Sasha snaps back with "well at least my track isn't showing boo boo". These two are channeling an episode of Hip Hop Wives..... When Sasha and Alicia attempt to go after one another. Swann and Dar hold their women back before they can come to blows.

Tom Phillips admits on commentary that he doesn't know what a track is. Pretty standard white guy comment by Phillips..... This leads to quite a few bootleg weave jokes by Corey Graves throughout the match. Rich Swann gets the advantage early on while Sasha and Alicia trash talk on the outside. Noam Dar gets control of the match when he soccer style kicks Swann on the ring apron. Noam then grounds Swann and goes to work on his elbow. Swann tries to rally and pick up the pace but Noam cuts him down and goes back to work on Swann's left arm for the next couple of minutes. Swann eventually rallies when he hits a standing rana on Dar. Swann gets some momentum but then attempts a rolling thunder only to have Dar pick his knees up at the last moment. Noam tries to slam Swann but it gets countered into a small package. Moments later, Dar locks in an ankle lock submission but Swann manages to break free and send Dar to the outside. With the ref counting out Dar, Alicia trips up Swann on the opposite side of the ring. Sasha sees this and makes her way to the other side to confront Alicia. She takes off her earrings and starts brawling with Fox. Banks ends up pulling out some of Fox's hair from her weave. Graves tells Phillips that he is going to find out now what tracks are. Meanwhile back in the ring, Noam Dar hits a big running kick on Swann and pins him.

Cedric says that karma will get them, he calls them extreme fools, who will get what's coming to them at Extreme Rules. Cedric says that he didn't rehab from his injury and return after 3 months to rehash his old relationship problems.

Gulak credits his victory to being efficient and having high class. Drew says that he just proved again that high flying doesn't pay and that staying grounded is the way.

Austin Aries makes his way to the ring with his trusty banana for the final segment of this show.

Austin Aries gets on the mic and brags about getting Neville to tap out to the Last Chancery. Austin says that everyone has been hitting him up since he made Neville tap last night. Aries then throws in a cheap plug for his upcoming foodfight book before repeatedly mentioning over and over how Neville tapped out.

The crowd joins in on chanting "He tapped out". Aries then cues to the footage from last night's Raw where Neville........ you get the idea..... Aries requests that the footage be played over and over. He gets the crowd to chant one more time. The tap out footage from Raw is then shown in slow motion. Austin says that everyone is making a big deal that Neville tapped out for the first time last night but that Neville was actually going to tap out on two other occasions to the last chancery. He cites WrestleMania where Neville raked him in the eyes and Payback, where Neville got himself blatantly disqualified. This leads to Neville finally coming out to address Aries. Neville says that Austin got lucky last night. He states that just like the vermin tonight in The Philips Arena, that Aries has no decorum. Neville calls Aries scum and a disgrace to 205 Live. Neville promises to eradicate Aries once and for all by inflicting insufferable agony to Aries this Sunday.

Neville closes his remarks by saying that he is going to get rid of Aries once and for all. Just then TJP shows up and tries to blind side Aries but Austin turns around and lays out TJP with the discus five arm. Neville gets into the ring and takes out Aries knee.

Neville beats down on Aries and tells TJP to hold him up. Neville then demands that Aries bends the knee to the king. Aries refuses and is then knocked down by Neville. The fans continue to chant "You Tapped Out" at Neville. He then clamps on The Rings of Saturn on Austin Aries. While TJP lays in some of the worst kicks in wrestling history on the lower body of Aries. Officials come out to break up Neville's hold. He is forced to relinquish the hold. The show ends with Neville standing over Aries.

Bill Corgan's Efforts to Buy NWA In Jeopardy

– Billy Corgan’s plan to buy the National Wrestling Alliance may have a serious bump in the road. PWInsider reports that the deal is “in jeopardy” according to multiple sources due to issues surrounding the transfer of the promotion’s existing copyrights and trademarks.

According to the site, the copyright and trademarks on the brand name lapsed last year. Bruce Tharpe’s International Wrestling Corp, LLC, which bought the NWA in 2012, re-applied for the trademarks on March 30th. The application has yet to be officially approved, meaning that it isn’t possible for them to be transferred to Corgan. Corgan has been in the process of buying the company from Tharpe including the name, rights and trademarks along with as the NWA Championship title belt, Tharpe’s stake in the NWA on Demand VOD service and licensing of the Paul Boesch wrestling library.

If the deal somehow does not go through, the future of the NWA is unknown although Tharpe would very possible continue the On Demand service as well as licensing the NWA brand name out to indy promoters. Corgan and Dave Lagana have been seeking to establish relationships with promotions which have licensed the NWA name.

Opinionated View- Billy you should be happy someone is saving you from buying a very old name and a belt.
