205 Live finally finding their footing?
If you have viewed 205 Live recently, you noticed that the feel of the show is starting to look more like the Cruiserweight Classic lately. That is because Mike Johnson of PWInsider is reporting that there have been major changes behind the scenes on the weekly show. Mike Johnson confirmed that Vince McMahon has stepped aside and is no longer running 205 Live. The WWE Network show is now being overseen by Triple H, who with William Regal put together the Cruiserweight Classic.
Cruiserweight GM, Drake Maverick announced on 205 Live last week that there is a 16-man single-elimination tournament in the vein of the Cruiserweight Classic. The finals will be at WrestleMania to determine the next WWE Cruiserweight Champion after it was vacated due to Enzo Amore's release.
Half of the first round is complete with TJP, Cedric Alexander, Kalisto, and Roderick Strong advancing to the round of eight. Next week on 205 Live, Akira Tozawa takes on Mark Andrews from the United Kingdom Division and Tony Nese takes on Drew Gulak. 205 seems to finally be utilizing their roster while also trying to spice it up with the NXT / UK additions that fit. i know ill be watching.
