The first round of the King of the Ring wraps up tonight and it’s getting pretty clear that Raw is the favored side. The talent pool just feels deeper over there as this show is going to include Shelton Benjamin getting a first round match. Maybe that would have been interesting fifteen years ago but it doesn’t quite work right now. Let’s get to it.

It’s Smackdown’s turn to do King of the Ring as we’re getting two more first round matches tonight. Last night’s pair of matches were pretty good so maybe Smackdown can keep up the pace. Other than that we get to find out who was behind the attack on Roman Reigns, or at least who Daniel Bryan and Rowan say it is. Let’s get to it.

It’s the final night in Toronto and we’re already starting on the path towards Clash of Champions. As for tonight though, we have the first round of fallout from last week’s revelation that Rowan tried to take out Roman Reigns. Since Buddy Murphy was the one to tell Reigns the news, that means Murphy faces Reigns tonight. Let’s get to it.

It’s time to get back home after New York after another incredible Takeover. With last week’s recap edition out of the way, things are back to normal here as we start the long build towards the next Takeover in a few months. The big draw is Johnny Gargano’s first comments as NXT Champion and you can hear the chants from here. Let’s get to it.

Should be some hot action tonight, grapple fans, as Kalisto and Lince Dorado take on The Juice Brothers (Buddy Murphy and Tony Nese) in tag team action, whilst Mustafa Ali goes one-on-one with Hideo Itami.  Also, look for possible developments in the rivalry between Cedric Alexander and Drew Gulak, as they’re set to fight for the Cruiserweight Championship in 12 days at SummerSlam.   Let’s get to it!

We’re one week removed from the greatest match in 205 Live history, grapple fans.  In last week’s broadcast, Mustafa Ali bested Buddy Murphy in an incredible no-disqualification match; a contest so intense, in fact, that one wonders why it wasn’t saved for the upcoming Extreme Rules pay-per-view.  This week sees Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander defend the strap against Hideo Itami.  Let’s get to it!

Another night of cruiserweight action is upon us, grapple fans.  Big main event this week as Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy tussle in a no-disqualification match.  TJ Perkins will also be in action, taking on “an opponent of Drake Maverick’s choosing”.  Well, you can certainly cut the anticipation in my lounge with a knife.  Let’s get to it!  Oh, and before I forget, I hope all my American readers have a happy Independence Day!

We open with highlights of the excellent main event from two weeks ago, where Buddy Murphy and Mustafa Ali’s tussle was interrupted by Hideo Itami.  It’ll hit the fan this week, grapple fans, as tonight all three combatants will tussle in a triple threat match.  Let’s get to it!

Good day, grapple fans!  We start with highlights of last week’s main event where Hideo Itami ran in to cause a DQ finish, before accosting Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy.  Drake Maverick tells us that, as a result of his reprehensible actions, Itami is banned from appearing on this week’s show.  Tonight, we’ve got six-man tag action as the Lucha House Party clash with Drew Gulak, ‘Gentleman’ Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick, while Mustafa Ali is back in action against Tony Nese.  Let’s get to it!

Last week saw one of the greatest matches in 205 Live history as Cedric Alexander bested Buddy Murphy in a Tuesday night classic.  Tonight, we’ve got Lince Dorado tangling with The Brian Kendrick and Mustafa Ali going one-on-one with Buddy Murphy.  Should be another good week of cruiserweight action.  Let’s get to it!

Has it already been a week since we last touched base on 205 Live, grapple fans?  I’d say “time flies when you’re having fun”, but 3 ½ hours of Backlash and two nights of Money in the Bank qualifying matches certainly wasn’t that.  Let’s hope that some cruiserweight action can be an otherwise bright spot amongst the consistently questionable content WWE has been churning out lately.  Let’s get to it!

We’re back with another special show as it’s another two hour house show, this time from Australia. Again we’ve seen most of the main event but just like last week, we should get to see more than we already got a few weeks back. Other than that, almost none of this matters aside from having good matches. Let’s get to it.

The champ is back tonight as Shinsuke Nakamura makes his first appearance on NXT since winning the NXT Title in Brooklyn. I mean, that was only eleven days ago but NXT is making it seem like a big deal. It should be interesting to see who comes out to challenge him for the title, though odds are it’s Samoa Joe for a rematch. Let’s get to it.
