WWE 205 Live preview, May 14, 2019: Cruiserweights collide with NXT U.K.

Tonight on WWE 205 Live, the Cruiserweights battle the Superstars of NXT U.K. in two huge contests. WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese will face the masked sensation Ligero while Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Humberto Carrillo, Mark Andrews and James Drake face off in a Fatal 4-Way Match.

WWE 205 Live vs. NXT U.K.
Humberto Carrillo and Gentleman Jack Gallagher forged an uneasy alliance due in part to their mutual disdain for Drew Gulak. Now, both Superstars will enter a Fatal 4-Way Match that also features Mark Andrews and James Drake. Of course, the high-flying Andrews is no stranger to WWE 205 Live, having battled previous Cruiserweight Champions such as Buddy Murphy. However, one-half of the inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions James Drake is certainly a variable and will be more than willing to show each competitor how things are done across the pond.

Will the tentative alliance between Carrillo and Gallagher grow stronger or more strained as they engage against each other and two of the brightest stars in NXT U.K., or will their desire to best one another shift their focus away from the goal of winning the match?

Tony Nese tests his mettle against Ligero
One of the most exciting competitors on the NXT UK roster is the masked high-flyer Ligero. The luchador has impressed the WWE Universe since first competing in the tournament for the WWE UK Championship and has continued to captivate fans by battling on NXT UK and WWE Worlds Collide. Although Ligero has defeated WWE 205 Live’s Gran Metalik – as well as Albert Hardie Jr. – he will certainly face a huge test against WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese.

With his title defense against Ariya Daivari at WWE Money in the Bank on the horizon, The Premier Athlete is more than willing to represent the purple brand in London and push his limits against a competitor that can potentially match his own speed and agility.

Ligero has a major opportunity to defeat the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, while Nese will be looking to send a message to his dastardly challenger.

Tune in to WWE 205 Live, streaming at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network!

This was a pretty solid show. Kinda surprised they didn't let a UK guy win the 4-way, but I like Carrillo so I'm good with it. Also Jack bringing back the fuckin' umbrella :DEAD:

Main event ruled, Ligero is fucking awesome and quickly becoming my favorite guy on the UK roster. Also that tanning bed promo Daivari cut was fuckin' hilarious

Anyone else hear the commentary team not even low key making it sound like Aiden English is gay for Carrillo?

A fun opening Fatal Four Way to start 205 Live this I gotta say. It's not often we see the WWE UK Wrestlers on the brand, but it seems every single time it does happen the talent knocks it outta the park like they did in this one. We even got to see William aka Gallagher's Umbrella returning helping for emotional support during the Match. Humberto got the win over some top talent, let's see if goes anywhere for him.

Ligero vs Nese was a solid Main Event, but it's not something I'm going to remember weeks from now to be honest. I'm still waiting for WWE to show me why they choose Nese as a Champion because I'm not getting excited or entertained by him since Murphy vs Nese 2 and that feels like forever ago. I just have a feeling at MITB, Darvari might be going home with that Cruiserweight Title.

WWE 205 Live preview, May 21, 2019: The Singh Brothers look to shut down The Lucha House Party
Despite losing to The Lucha House Party immediately after returning to WWE 205 Live, The Singh Brothers believe they have what it takes to silence Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik for good. Plus, with Ariya Daivari vanquished, will a new Superstar emerge to challenge WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese?

The Singh Brothers’ second chance
Last month, The Singh Brothers made their return to WWE 205 Live for the first time since the first-ever episode. The duo looked to immediately make a splash and battled Cruiserweight division veterans Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik of The Lucha House Party. Although they were met with defeat, The Singhs remained confident and immediately bounced back in a battle against David Kauffman and Kevin Lee.

Following their victory, The Singh Brothers issued a challenge to The Lucha House Party looking to fully course-correct and show the WWE Universe that the Cruiserweight division has changed and that they are ushers of a new eras.

Can The Singhs prove their loss to Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado was a fluke, or will The Lucha House Party once again send them packing?

Who will be the fighting champion’s next challenger?
At WWE Money in the Bank, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese successfully defended his title against the aggressive Ariya Daivari. Not only did the victory solidify The Premier Athlete’s status as the best competitor in the Cruiserweight division, it also extended his winning streak, which includes victories over the likes of Drew Gulak, Buddy Murphy and Ligero.

However, there are Superstars like Oney Lorcan vying for the opportunity to challenge The Premier Athlete and reach the pinnacle, and Nese is not one to back down from a challenge should a new one emerge.
