Tonight on WWE 205 Live, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush and Raul Mendoza both requested a rematch from last week and another non-title match has been set. Plus, Mansoor battles The Brian Kendrick!
At WWE Crown Jewel, Mansoor fed off the energy of his hometown crowd and managed to secure a huge victory against Cesaro. Looking to build on his momentum, Mansoor is set to make his WWE 205 Live debut tonight. However, the young Superstar isn’t taking on any local competitors — instead Mansoor is slated to face one of the most experienced members of not only the Cruiserweight division, but all of WWE: The Brian Kendrick.
Can Mansoor continue to ride the wave of momentum or will he learn a valuable lesson from The Man with a Plan?
Last week, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush and Raul Mendoza battled in a fast-paced and thrilling non-title bout. Although Rush emerged victorious, Mendoza impressed the champion enough that despite his upcoming title defense against Angel Garza next week on WWE NXT, The Man of the Hour wanted a rematch. Mendoza also wanted another chance to defeat the champion and WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick was happy to oblige.
Will Rush pick up another victory before he faces Garza on WWE NXT, or will Raul Mendoza derail Rush’s momentum?
