This week’s 205 Live will feature Ikemen Jiro’s first singles match in WWE.
WWE has announced that Jiro vs. Tony Nese will take place on 205 Live this Friday night. Asher Hale vs. Grayson Waller is also set for the episode.
Jiro has wrestled on 205 Live twice previously, teaming with August Grey in tag matches. Jiro & Grey have defeated Nese & Ariya Daivari and The Bollywood Boyz. Jiro & Grey also teamed together on NXT last week, losing to The Grizzled Young Veterans.
Jiro (formerly known as Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio) was part of the group of wrestlers that joined the WWE Performance Center last December. AJPW, DDT, and Wrestle-1 are among the promotions that he’s wrestled for during his career.
Hale (Anthony Henry) and Waller (formerly known as Matty Wahlberg) both joined the WWE Performance Center earlier this year. Hale made his WWE debut on NXT last month and has wrestled on 205 Live four times. Waller made his 205 Live debut by defeating Sunil Singh last week. Singh suffered a dislocated shoulder while facing Waller but still finished the match.
