WWE NXT Superstars Angel Garza, Tyler Breeze, Raul Mendoza, Joaquin Wilde and Danny Burch have been announced for tonight’s WWE 205 Live episode on the WWE Network.
Garza, who just dropped the NXT Cruiserweight Title to NXT UK Superstar Jordan Devlin at WWE Worlds Collide in the Fatal 4 Way with Travis Banks and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott on Saturday night, will go up against Breeze in tonight’s main event.
Wilde vs. Mendoza and Burch vs. The Brian Kendrick were also announced for tonight’s show.
Below is WWE’s announcement for tonight’s WWE 205 Live episode, which will air live on the WWE Network from the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma after SmackDown on FOX goes off the air:
The NXT Cruiserweight Championship is a hot commodity in WWE, and after competing in the Cruiserweight division and WWE 205 Live for some time, Raul Mendoza wants to prove he is ripe for a title opportunity. The high-flying Superstar has no doubt earned the respect of his peers, including that of former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush.
However, tonight Mendoza faces a younger Superstar eager to make a name for himself, Joaquin Wilde. The energetic Wilde has one WWE 205 Live victory under his belt and is looking claim a huge one against Mendoza.
A bitter rivalry intensifies
Last week on WWE 205 Live, Danny Burch came up short against The Brian Kendrick following a distraction from The Man with a Plan’s new ally, Ariya Daivari. Tonight, Burch will have another opportunity to silence Kendrick, but he will have to keep a watchful eye on his opponent’s corner, as The Persian Lion will be lurking at ringside.
Burch will certainly be laser-focused on delivering as much punishment to Kendrick as possible while keeping Daivari at bay. Can he overcome the odds, or is the alliance between Kendrick and Daivari too much to handle?
A good-looking contest
At Worlds Collide, Angel Garza lost the coveted NXT Cruiserweight Championship to Jordan Devlin in an exciting Fatal 4-Way Match even though he wasn’t pinned. Despite the loss, Garza is focused on reclaiming the title and hopes to pick up a victory against WWE 205 Live’s newest Superstar, Tyler Breeze.
Since debuting in the Cruiserweight division earlier this month, Prince Pretty has gone undefeated, and a victory against the former champion could help solidify his own case for a title opportunity. The WWE Universe is sure to be on the edge of their seats for the high-stakes contest.
