Ikemen Jiro and Ari Sterling to make WWE debuts on 205 Live

In a blockbuster edition of 205 Live, Ikemen Jiro and Ari Sterling will each make their WWE debut.

Jiro will team with August Grey in what should be a spirited tag team bout against self-proclaimed 205 Live OGs Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari, who have made no bones about their disdain for fresh-faced Cruiserweights.

The Persian Lion has taken a particular interest in The Life of the Party in recent weeks, seemingly attempting to corrupt him ever since Grey broke the rules by using the ropes for leverage to claim a win against Daivari. Since then, Daivari has done everything in his power to convince Grey to take shortcuts on a more routine basis.

Grey, however, has stayed true to himself, and he’s set to join forces with Jiro, a wildly eccentric competitor known for his fun-loving, flashy personality.


Sterling is set for a one-on-one clash with 205 Live pillar and former 24/7 Champion Samir Singh.

He might be new to the purple brand, but Sterling is anything but a rookie in the sports-entertainment landscape; the newcomer made a name for himself on the independent scene with his jaw-dropping arsenal of aerial attacks that must be seen to be believed.

Will Jiro and/or Sterling come away with a victory in their first appearance on the purple brand? Find out by tuning in to 205 Live, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else!

Fightful will have live coverage of 205 Live beginning at 10 p.m. ET on Friday.
