Cruiserweight title match set for first 205 Live Wednesday episode

“WWE Universe, this is AOP’s and 205 Live General Manager DRAKE MAVERICK and, yes, what you are reading on your social media channels is true. 205 Live is moving to Wednesday nights as part of three hours of action, every Wednesday on the WWE Network. It will start at 7 pm with 205 Live, continuing with 8 pm NXT and 9 pm the continuing second annual Mae Young Classic. Kicking off 205 Live on Wednesday nights, we’re going to see the WWE cruiserweight championship defended. Cedric Alexander will defend the WWE cruiserweight championship against Drew Gulak.
