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!

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!

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!

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.

It’s the go home show for Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2016 and Smackdown has managed to put together a pretty decent build in such a small time frame. Tonight we’ve got Dean Ambrose hosting the Ambrose Asylum with James Ellsworth as his guest, meaning AJ Styles is bound to get involved. Let’s get to it.

It’s two days after Survivor Series and less than two weeks to Tables, Ladders and Chairs, meaning it’s time to make up a card. Thankfully Smackdown is ready for that and has already announced a tag team turmoil match to determine who will challenge Rhyno and Heath Slater. Let’s get to it.

It’s the 900th episode and also the final show before Sunday’s Survivor Series. That means there’s a lot of potential for hijinks and shenanigans tonight, which could mean for a very entertaining show. If nothing else maybe they can do something other than having wacky partners who can’t get along four times in one night. Let’s get to it.

It’s another night in the same building as Smackdown is in Scotland. Tonight actually has a major match announced as Becky Lynch will be defending the Women’s Title against Alexa Bliss in a match that was scheduled for No Mercy but was postponed due to an injury. Other than that we’re likely going to see more announced for Survivor Series. Let’s get to it.

Last week’s show wasn’t the greatest in the world and the reception has been mixed at best. That doesn’t mean the show is in trouble by any means though as Raw started off great and wasn’t exactly as strong last night. If nothing else we get American Alpha tonight. Let’s get to it.

This is a fresh start for a change as Monday was a completely worthless show thanks to the Fourth of July. We’re getting closer to Battleground but more importantly we’re less than two weeks away from the Draft which resets everything anyway. In other words there’s no way of knowing how good this will be so let’s get to it.

It’s actually a big night here as we have two title matches on a single show. First of all we have Miz defending the Intercontinental Title against Cesaro after the champion lost a non-title match this past Monday on Raw. The second title match will see the new US Champion Rusev defending against Kalisto in the masked man’s rematch. Let’s get to it.

It’s the final show before Payback and for once in a very long time, WWE seems to be on a roll. The AJ Styles vs. Roman Reigns feud is actually quite entertaining and should serve very well as a first challenge for Reigns’ run as champion. Other than that we have Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens coming up which should add in some good personal violence. Let’s get to it.

It’s the last show on the UK tour and we’re in the same building we were in on Monday for Raw. These shows can range from nothing special to more interesting than usual but Smackdown tends to be just your run of the mill show. We’re getting closer to Payback though and the card is looking stacked. Let’s get to it.

Monday really didn’t offer us much to see this week as the main event didn’t change a lot. The big story continues to be Brock Lesnar, who isn’t likely to show up on this show. Other than that we’ve got Miz vs. AJ Styles scheduled for tonight which could be good if Miz is allowed to control for a bit. Let’s get to it.

We’re getting closer to the Royal Rumble and now it’s clear that Brock Lesnar is going to be in the match itself, making it even harder for Roman Reigns to hold on to the WWE World Title. As for tonight though, we have Alberto Del Rio getting his rematch for the US Title after losing the title to Kalisto earlier in the week. Let’s get to it.
