WWE 205 Live Results – September 19, 2018
Welcome to WWE 205 Live on the WWE Network.
We start off with a look back at Drew Gulak’s attempt to win the Cruiserweight Championship at SummerSlam, only to fall short. Drew says Cedric was outclassed, outmanned, and outstrategized. Drew is the better man. Cedric threw a hail mary pass and got lucky. If Cedric cares about his legacy, Cedric should give him a rematch.

We see Cedric call out Drew Gulak a few weeks ago and we see the match being accepted. What will happen tonight when Drew gets another chance?
