We’re only 4 days out from SummerSlam, grapple fans, as things are heating up in the WWE Universe!  While this weekend will see Cedric Alexander defend his Cruiserweight Championship against Drew Gulak on the pre-show in Brooklyn, there’s no shortage of action on this week’s 205 broadcast.  Akira Tozawa and Lio Rush will collide again following the latter’s win last month, whilst Cedric clashes with ‘Gentleman’ Jack Gallagher, with Gulak and The Brian Kendrick barred from ringside.  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!

It’s a good time to follow cruiserweights, grapple fans, as Drew Gulak is now the number one contender to Cedric Alexander, Mustafa Ali and Hideo Itami have unfinished business and Lio Rush and Akira Tozawa are set to clash again.  Strong characters, highly-proficient workers and well-told stories; 205 Live is a brand worth watching these days.  Tonight we’ll see Cedric Alexander tussle with The Brian Kendrick and Kalisto battles Tony Nese.  Let’s get to it!

The weeks simply fly by during a hot summer, grapple fans, as here we are again with another episode of 205 Live.  Should be a buzz-worthy episode this time round, as we’ve got a fatal four-way to determine a new number one contender for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship (TJP vs Ali vs Itami vs Gulak) as well as Tony Nese having another tussle with Kalisto, this time with Buddy Murphy, Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado barred from ringside.  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!

Good grief, grapple fans; Drake Maverick opens the show by telling us that tonight is all about OPPORTUNITY.  He’s certainly been drinking his WWE Corporate Kool Aid.  Tonight should certainly be interesting as we’ve got one half of The Juice Brothers, Tony Nese, going one-on-one with Akira Tozawa, Lio Rush debuts (likely in a squash match) and The Lucha House Party clash with Drew Gulak, ‘Gentleman’ Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick in six-man elimination action.  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!

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!

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.

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 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.

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.
