WWE 205 Live Results – June 25, 2019
We start off with a look at Sunday’s Cruiserweight Title Match where Drew Gulak defeated Akira Tozawa and Tony Nese to become the new Cruiserweight Champion.
Drew Gulak says time for community is over. The pillars of the cruiserweight division are weak. He gave up on making a better 205 Live for a better Drew Gulak. This place does not deserve his generousity, it deserves his wrath. That is what you saw at Stomping Grounds. After stripping that all away, you call me champion. Let Mr. Nese and Mr. Tozawa fight and whoever comes out victorious, he will put down forever at Extreme Rules.
