The road to the Cell continues as we are now less than three weeks away from the next pay per view. There is little secret to the fact that we are coming up on Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre III inside the Cell for McIntyre’s title, though the match has not been announced just yet. Let’s get to it.

Clash Of Champions has come and gone and we are on the way to the Cell. That could mean a few different directions, though Orton vs. McIntyre III would seem to be in the cards. At the same time though, the Draft is looming and that means we could be in for a big shakeup in the next few weeks. Hopefully we don’t have a big lull for the next few weeks on the way there. Let’s get to it.

It’s the last night in the Performance Center and that means we are also less than a week away from Summerslam. This week’s show gets to deal with the big fallout from the Punt last week as Randy Orton kicked Ric Flair in the head. Since it’s a Flair story, we need the combined forces of Shawn Michaels and likely HHH down the line to tell us how great Flair is all over again. Let’s get to it.

We’re less than a month away from Summerslam and that means things need to start picking up. You can see a lot of what they have in mind from here, but there are still a few things that need to be ironed out. Hopefully some of those things are set up tonight, as the wheels need to start turning. Let’s get to it.

We’re finally done with Extreme Rules and that means it’s time to get ready for Summerslam. I’m not sure what that is going to mean, but tonight we have Randy Orton vs. Big Show in an unsanctioned match. I’d be stunned if this doesn’t set up Orton vs. Drew McIntyre at Summerslam, which is the most logical main event they have had in a long time. Let’s get to it.

We’re less than two weeks away from Elimination Chamber and unlike Raw, we actually have some stuff set up for the pay per view. That includes the Smackdown World Title match, meaning we have some singles matches between the six competitors to get through for the next two weeks. Those start tonight so let’s get to it.

It’s the go home show for the Royal Rumble and as luck would have it, we’re getting a 2/3 falls match between Rey Mysterio and Almas (still not liking the new name). There are still some spots available in the Royal Rumble matches so maybe we’ll fill some of those in tonight. Hopefully some are left open though, as the surprises are always nice. Let’s get to it.

It’s the first show of the year and we’re taped again, though for the last time here. The big story this week is the return of John Cena, who is making one of his regular stops here in between movies. It’s not clear what he’s going to be doing but there could be some interesting interactions with some of the people on the roster. Let’s get to it.

The big story coming out of last night was the huge shakeup with the McMahons taking over the company again. This presents the question of what that means for Smackdown, which could be a few different things. The main story coming out of TLC is Asuka as the new Women’s Champion, which is likely setting up a big title match at the Royal Rumble. Let’s get to it.

It’s the final show before TLC and the card is actually stacked. This week we have a rap battle between the Usos and the Bar, a Wrestlemania rematch between Asuka and Charlotte and, surprisingly enough, Daniel Bryan vs. Mustafa Ali. That’s a good thing for 205 Live fans but I’m not sure what to expect. 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!

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 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!
