Ariya Daivari defeated Danny Burch via pinfall
Daivari got an in-set promo saying that 2019 was full of new people to the division so his new year’s resolution is to protect 205 Live because it’s made him very wealthy. He concluded by saying he’s started with Danny Burch, then he’s moving onto Raul Mendoza. Burch was set for victory until a “fan” in a mask jumped up onto the ring apron, allowing Daivari to hit a low blow, following up with the hammerlock lariat for the victory.
Post-match, the “fan” unmasked to reveal Brian Kendrick. He said he’s a pro wrestler and some might remember him, but he’s here to remind everyone that he’s the Brian Kendrick. he dropped Burch with the sliced bread to close.
