Since the success of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic Tournament and the unique style that the show presented to the WWE Universe, wrestling fans have been waiting for the Cruiserweight’s that were involved to make their mark.
Many WWE fans are agreed that they haven’t made the impact that was expected when they debuted on RAW weeks ago, aside from Brian Kendrick and TJ Perkins, the Cruiserweight’s have been involved in multi tag team matches with no focus on their characters or reason for fans to develop an invested interest in them. The individuals involved in the Cruiserweight Division all are unique individuals with huge personalities and move sets to match that fans who have witnessed them on the independent scene can attest, but fans of who have witnessed them on WWE’s premier show have only seen a small amount of what those wrestlers are capable of.
However, today came the announcement that WWE fans and fans of the Cruiserweight Division have been waiting on, a show showcasing the Division itself.
“A one-hour, in-ring program called 205 Live, showcasing WWE’s new Cruiserweight division, will premiere Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 10 p.m. ET, exclusively on WWE Network. The live weekly show will be called by Mauro Ranallo, the voice of SmackDown LIVE, and Corey Graves, color commentator for Monday Night Raw.
Coming off the success of WWE Network’s recent Cruiserweight Classic tournament and the formation of the new Cruiserweight division, which airs exclusively on Monday Night Raw, 205 Live will feature Superstars that are 205 pounds and under, including: new WWE Cruiserweight Champion The Brian Kendrick, as well as TJ Perkins, Rich Swann, Noam Dar, HoHo Lun, Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik, Tozawa, Jack Gallagher, Gurv Sihra and Harv Sihra.
“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.”
“With the addition of 205 Live to an already robust programming schedule, WWE continues to enhance the value of WWE Network for our subscribers,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE Chief Revenue & Marketing Officer. “We take pride in listening to our fans and delivering even more live, premium content that they are asking for.” – WWE.com
Now this sounds exactly what the WWE Universe has been screaming out for, taking the best parts from the WWE CWC and making a show based around it, a NXT 2.0 perhaps.
One thing can be agreed that with wrestlers from all around the world involved in the Cruiserweight Division all eyes will be the WWE Network on November 29th.
