WWE’s cruiserweight division is packed to the brim with talented Superstars, but it will clearly never be a priority for management.
There was no cruiserweight match at Backlash and you can count the number of times the division has been referenced on Raw this year on one hand.
Despite the lack of any promotion or attention, 205 Live has improved over the past few months thanks to some new talent shaking things up and a greater focus on in-ring performance.
One of the more promising newcomers has been Buddy Murphy. The former NXT tag team champion has improved every aspect of his game and quickly rose through the ranks to become a contender for the Cruiserweight Championship.
Let’s take a look at everything that happened on this week’s episode of 205 Live.
Results will be added as the show progresses.

WWE has not officially announced any plans for a set of tag titles for the cruiserweight division, but management keeps booking weekly matches featuring a handful of established teams.
The Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher are getting used to being a team again after Kendrick was out with an injury for several months, but they showed no signs of losing their chemistry.
The match started at a slow pace because Kendrick and Gallagher were in control, but once Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik got the upper hand, everything started to speed up.
After a short but competitive contest, Dorado scored the win for his team with a beautiful Shooting Star Press from the top rope.
Notes and Highlights
- Drew Gulak calling Dorado “Lince Dorito” was so much funnier than it was supposed to be.
- It seems like half the WWE roster uses some form of the superkick nowadays.
- Gulak was at ringside because he is feuding with Kalisto, but the announcers barely acknowledged the storyline.
