Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of WWE 205 Live as it airs on WWE Network.
WWE.com’s official preview doesn’t address it, but the big question a lot of us have heading into this week’s episode from Detroit is how General Manager DRAKE MAVERICK will juggle his responsibilities to the purple brand with his new, tactical vest-wearing ones as manager of AOP over on Raw. He’s got his hands full on 205 Live, with Cruiserweight Champ Cedric Alexander showing up to respond to Drew Gulak’s call for a rematch, and Mustafa Ali’s fiery return from a pair of medical scares to confront Hideo Itami. Will DM THE GM let Gulak cut in line, or is he kind of allied with Drew seeing as Akam & Rezar were working with the Philadelphia Stretcher at the end of Raw? Has Ali been cleared, or did the Heart of 205 Live decide he couldn’t wait to get his hands on Itami, no matter what the doctors say?
Elsewhere, Buddy Murphy earned himself a title shot against Alexander at Super Show-Dwon with his thrilling win over Kalisto last Tuesday. Akira Tozawa got back in the win column, and we’re still waiting to see what‘s next for youngsters Lio Rush and Noam Dar after they won their last feuds.
We'll post match results and plot developments here. And this gives you Cagesiders a dedicated place to rave and/or bitch about whatever goes down on the WWE’s cruiserweight showcase - while it’s being broadcast at 10PM Eastern!
