Apparently, one Goldust is smarter than three Zo Train members.

205 Live aired from the Laredo Energy Center in Laredo, Texas.

After a confrontation earlier in the night, Goldust challenged Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore to a match. But the champ claimed that he didn’t deserve to face him, challenging the Bizarre One to a three-on-one handicap match instead against Drew Gulak, Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese.

The challenge was accepted and the fight was on. Goldust took all three men out early, but the numbers game eventually caught up to him. When it looked like they seemingly had the match under control, the Zo Train started to argue with each other.

It also didn’t help that Amore was at ringside screaming at them. This allowed Goldust to continue to battle back. Nese tried a top rope maneuver, but ending up hitting Daivari instead once Goldust moved out of the way.

Furious at his team’s performance, Amore started to berate Daivari and Nese until Cedric Alexander took him out. While all of this was happening outside the ring, Gulak looked on in disbelief. But he didn’t realize Goldust was behind him, who hit the Final Cut for the win.

In the other match of the night, Gran Metalik took on TJP. Looking to avenge his loss from last week, the former Cruiserweight Champion gave it to Metalik early on. The two traded momentum back and forth throughout the match, with each surviving the other’s onslaught.

TJP countered the Metalik Driver, ready to hit his own Detonation Kick. But the masked luchador countered that into a pin, earning another victory over the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic winner.
