Tonight on WWE 205 Live, Buddy Murphy has an opportunity to make a huge statement in a WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament rematch against Mustafa Ali. Plus, Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik battle The Brian Kendrick and Gentleman Jack Gallagher in tag team action.
Last week on WWE 205 Live, The Brian Kendrick and Gentleman Jack Gallagher proved they are back in the groove – and certainly on the same page – by earning a victory against Akira Tozawa and Hideo Itami. Kendrick and Gallagher definitely had their work cut out for them against the duo of hard-hitting Japanese Superstars, but they proved that in a high-stakes tag team contest, teamwork is key. Kendrick and Gallagher remained focused and seized an opportunity to secure victory following a miscommunication between Tozawa and Itami.
Tonight, The Man With a Plan and the British gentleman battle the high-flying duo of Lince Doardo and Gran Metalik. The luchadors present another unique challenge for Kendrick and Gallagher, as Doardo and Metalik rely on fast-paced and high-risk maneuvers that can be difficult to defend. Can Kendrick & Gallagher continue to prove they are on the same page, or will the Lucha House Party reign supreme?
Returning to Cruiserweight competition last week, Buddy Murphy let out his frustrations on his opponent before brawling with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander. The Australian Superstar had an opportunity to face Alexander for the title at the Greatest Royal Rumble event but failed to make weight.
Murphy has since returned to WWE 205 Live, and his frustrations are well-known, as is his intention to face The Soul of WWE 205 Live for the championship. There is certainly an enormous amount of animosity between the champion and his potential challenger, but tonight Murphy will face Alexander’s friend, The Heart of WWE 205 Live, Mustafa Ali.
During the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament, Ali ended Murphy’s hopes of a WrestleMania moment before advancing to The Grandest Stage of Them All to face Alexander for the championship. With a major opportunity to prove himself, can Murphy best Ali and make the case that he is ready to compete for the ultimate prize in the Cruiserweight division?

Tonight on WWE 205 Live, Cedric Alexander will defend his coveted WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Hideo Itami.
Tonight on WWE 205 Live, Hideo Itami has an opportunity to earn the respect he desires when he challenges Cedric Alexander for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
After interrupting a match between Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy last month, Hideo Itami made his championship intentions clear while continuing his obsessive quest for respect. Although WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick was less than impressed with Itami’s attack, the Japanese Superstar defeated Ali and Murphy in a Triple Threat Match, making a very strong claim for a WWE Cruiserweight Championship opportunity.
Cedric Alexander was eager for the challenge and implored Maverick to make the match. After some deliberation, Maverick scheduled the title bout for tonight! After the battle was set, the champion and challenger displayed their animosity – and eagerness to compete – during an interview after WWE 205 Live. The tension continued to rise all week with both Superstars determined to claim victory.
Don’t miss WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander put his title on the line against Hideo Itami tonight at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network!
