Ever since SmackDown LIVE’s Chad Gable scored a controversial victory over Gentleman Jack Gallagher by count-out last month, the WWE Universe has been eagerly anticipating a rematch between the two Superstars in order to finally determine a definitive winner.
Although Drake Maverick has been distracted from his duties in his pursuit and defense of the 24/7 Title in recent weeks, the 205 Live’s General Manager is now looking to make up for his performance by arranging this rematch tonight!
For his part, Gallagher recently regained his momentum since his match against Gable, which has sparked a new fire inside him. Can he maintain that hot streak against his toughest challenge to date and erase the bittersweet memory of his count-out loss?

Akira Tozawa goes one-on-one with Samir SinghSince returning to action in June after a brief hiatus, Drew Gulak has displayed a more aggressive attitude and in-ring repertoire. At WWE Stomping Grounds, Gulak defeated Akira Tozawa and then-champion Tony Nese to at long last lay claim to the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. This past Sunday at WWE Extreme Rules, Gulak proved that his victory at WWE Stomping Grounds was no fluke and defeated his former friend The Premier Athlete to retain the championship in his hometown of Philadelphia.
Long gone are the campaign slogans and PowerPoint presentations, as Gulak is focused on letting his abilities inside the squared circle do the talking. With The Biggest Event of the Summer on the horizon, will a new challenger make a strong case to be the one to face the champion?
Mike Kanellis is in action tonight and is looking to make a statementOne week after Akira Tozawa emerged to save his friend and mentor The Brian Kendrick from a 2-on-1 post-match assault at the hands of The Singh Brothers, WWE.com has learned that Akira Tozawa will battle Samir Singh.
Last week on WWE 205 Live, Mike Kanellis interrupted Gentleman Jack Gallagher’s match to air his grievances – or trash as it were – regarding his dissatisfaction with WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick. Kanellis has long felt that Maverick has not given him opportunities and has recently been too focused on the WWE 24/7 Championship. Maverick tried to reason with Kanellis following the outburst, but his words fell on deaf ears.
Kanellis feels Maverick has ruined his life and that interrupting WWE 205 Live is the proper way to reciprocate. Despite Kanellis’ rage, Maverick fined The Opportunist for his actions. Kanellis remained defiant and promised to defeat his opponent tonight – no matter who it is -- to see how big a fine Maverick would issue then.
Who will face the wrath of Mike Kanellis? Don’t miss WWE 205 Live, streaming live tonight at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
