New cruiserweight weekly program to debut on WWE Network later this month



WWE has announced that they will be debuting a new Network exclusive weekly show dedicated to the cruiserweight division. 

Following the 32-man Cruiserweight Classic tournament, the plan was the have the new division compete exclusively on RAW. Moving forward, the division will also be featured on a show called 205 Live. The program will be one-hour in length and will air on the WWE Network immediately after SmackDown Live. The matches will take place in the same arena as each episode of SmackDown which means fans will be treated to an extra hour of live wrestling should they decide to stick around. If you’re a big fan of Talking Smack like us, you’re now going to have to wait until 11 p.m. ET to enjoy that show. 

SmackDown Live lead man Mauro Ranallo and RAW color commentator Corey Graves will call the action that takes place in between the purple ropes. The show will premiere on the WWE Network on November 29th inside of the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina 

“205 Live is a natural progression to showcase the depth of our roster,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “With world-class talent such as Brian Kendrick, TJ Perkins, and Rich Swann, 205 Live will be a must-see program on WWE Network.”

The name of the show pertains to the weight limit of the men who compete inside the cruiserweight division. Current cruiserweight champ Brian Kendrick, former champ and Cruiserweight Classic victor TJ Perkins, Gran Metalik, Jack Gallagher, Rich Swann, Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado and plenty more will appear on 205 Live on a weekly basis.
