WWE 205 Live returns to WWE Network tonight (April 30, 2019), live on Tuesday nights, with a show from the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio.
Advertised for tonight: Ariya Daivari beat Oney Lorcan to become #1 contender last week, and now we watch to see if he can stay on a roll heading into his eventual Cruiserweight title fight with the Premiere Champ, Tony Nese. Drew Gulak persuaded General Manager Drake Maverick to give him a chance to prove he can take Nese’s strap, and they’ll face off in non-title action.
Come right back here at 10 p.m. ET. We’ll update all the results from 205 Live live as it airs on WWE Network below the line.
Enjoy the show!

- The Singh Brothers get a bit of promo time ahead of their match, reintroducing themselves as our beloved heroes of the cruiserweight division and talk up their time with Jinder Mahal as if they were personally wrestling the likes of Randy Orton and AJ Styles and they’re here to take the division into the future.
- Lucha House Party (Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado) over the Singh Brothers (Samir & Sunil Singh) by pinfall with a shooting star press from Dorado on Samir.
