We are only 4 days out from Oil Rumble, grapple fans, and tonight sees a 5-man gauntlet match to determine a number one contender for Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander in Saudi Arabia this Friday.  If there’s a pre-show for this stadium spectacular, you can bank on this match being on it.  Drake Maverick confirms the competitors: Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, Kalisto, TJ Perkins and Mustafa Ali.  Let’s get to it!

Time for another week of cruiserweight action, grapple fans, as 205 Live is seemingly entirely unaffected by the ‘Superstar Shakeup’.  The hype video focuses on tonight’s tornado tag match between Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik and Hideo Itami & Akira Towawa.  Let’s get to it!

If you don’t think you’ve had quite enough wrestling this week, grapple fans, then read on as I recap the first episode of 205 Live post-WrestleMania.  We’ll hear from the new Cruiserweight Champion, Cedric Alexander, and Mark Andrews is set to do battle with Drew Gulak.

It’s the go-home show for the WrestleMania pre-show, grapple fans!  We’ve got Mark Andrews taking on Drew Gulak, more hype for Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali’s championship opportunity (#WWEcorporatespeak) this Sunday and lots more.  Let’s get to it!

Hype video for tonight’s show and we should be in for a treat; we’ve also got Hideo Itami and Akira Tozawa taking on Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik as well as Buddy Murphy tangling with Kalisto.  Should be a hot night of cruiserweight action.

No tournament matches this week, grapple fans, as Cedric Alexander vs Mustafa Ali is all set for WrestleMania.  We do have a fatal 4 way scheduled for this broadcast, and goodness knows what else, so let’s get right to it!

The participants for tonight’s fatal 4 way match are showcased in a hype video; Akira Tozawa, Kalisto, TJ Perkins and Buddy Murphy.  You’d strongly suspect that the winner of this thing will be high up the pecking order for a Cruiserweight Title shot post-WrestleMania.

We round out the semi-finals of the Cruiserweight Title tournament tonight, grapple fans, as Mustafa Ali tussles with Drew Gulak for a spot against Cedric Alexander on the WrestleMania pre-show.  Last week’s bout between Alexander and Roderick Strong was a 205 Live classic; can Ali and Gulak deliver the goods this week?

We open with highlights of last week’s all-action semi-final, as Cedric pinned Roddy with an inside cradle and some hype for tonight’s Mustafa/Drew clash.  Let’s get to it!

It’s getting serious now, grapple fans.  Semi-final action in the Cruiserweight title tournament awaits, as Roderick Strong and Cedric Alexander tussle for a place in the final and a spot on the WrestleMania 34 pre-show in New Orleans (come on, you don’t think they’re getting on the main card, do you?).

Last week’s results are re-capped, as Drew Gulak submitted Mark Andrews with the dragon sleeper to advance to the semi-finals and Mustafa Ali downed Buddy Murphy to join the final four.

Vic and Nigel join us from ringside and I think I’ve heard the word ‘WrestleMania’ 5-10 times already!  We go straight to the ring for tag-team action.

This week we wrap-up the quarter-finals, grapple fans, as Buddy Murphy is set to take on Mustafa Ali in what could be a captivating face vs face match and Mark Andrews meets Drew Gulak in a clash of styles.  An interesting evening of cruiserweighting awaits.

We’re reminded of last week’s results, as ‘tournament favourite, Cedric Alexander’ (WWE’s words, so that’s as good a sign as any that he’s not winning this thing) defeated TJ Perkins and Roderick Strong overcame Kalisto.  Solid action last week; more of the same tonight wouldn’t go amiss.

It’s time for the quarter-finals, grapple fans.  This week should be a real treat as we’ve got 205 Live stalwarts TJP and Cedric Alexander going one-on-one and an interesting clash of styles with Roderick Strong taking on Kalisto.  I’m pumped up and ready for some cruiserweighting.  Let’s get to it!

Quick introduction, grapple fans.  I’m John, I’m from the U.K., and I’m looking forward to bringing you my thoughts on 205 Live every Wednesday morning.  Here’s this week’s show review, from next week I’ll hope to settle into a Wednesday morning at approximately 10.00am G.M.T. posting routine.

We are now firmly entrenched in the HHH Era of 205 Live, with more emphasis on what goes on in the squared circle, and less on sports-entertaining people.  So far so good as the Enzo Debacle (and I mean the sexual assault allegations, not his general ring work) has worked out for the best for the viewers; and this week the Cruiserweight Title tournament rolls on.
