205 Live Episode 62 Recap: Enter Drake Maverick



Daniel Bryan comes out to kickoff the show. He introduces 205 Live’s new General Manager. It turns out to be Rockstar Spud — who now goes by the name of Drake Maverick.

Maverick’s first order of business is to crown a new Cruiserweight Champion. He announces a 16-man single elimination tournament. The winner becomes the new Cruiserweight Champion. The final of the tournament is going to take place at WrestleMania. The first two matches will be Gran Metalik vs Cedric Alexander and TJP vs Tyler Bate. Those matches will take place tonight.

Cedric Alexander def. Gran Metalik via pinfall to advance to the 2nd round.

There’s a vignette on Tyler Bate.

Jack Gallagher is backstage. He says hopefully 205 Live’s new GM understands the importance of a Gentleman making it through the tournament and on to WrestleMania.

Drew Gulak brings flowers to Maverick. He says on behalf of the 205 Live’s roster, he has to tell the new GM how happy they all are that he’s here. They all crave law and order. Gulak is very excited to see the changes Maverick is going to implement for a better 205 Live.

Mustafa Ali sits down backstage to talk about his match against Cedric Alexander the previous week. He was happy that the fans enjoyed the match but he was bummed to lose the match. He says the tournament will let him steal the show and will be his ticket to Wrestlemania.

Dasha interviews TJP. She introduces him as just TJP but he doesn’t like that. She reintroduces him as the “first-ever Cruiserweight Champion” TJP. She says he’s had recent string of losses since he’s returned to 205 Live. He says people have a short memory. He won the 1st Cruiserweight Classic and was the 1st Cruiserweight Championship. Maverick interrupts TJP and introduces himself. He says TJP talks a lot about winning the Cruiserweight Classic and the Cruiserweight Championship. He says it’s a new day here on 205 Live. TJP is going to get in the ring with Tyler Bate later on. Tyler Bate is hungry. He was the first ever UK Champion. He wants to go to WrestleMania and become the new Cruiserweight Champion. Maverick wants to know which TJP is going to show up tonight: the TJP who won the Cruiserweight Classic; or the TJP who whines and complains when he doesn’t get his way.

Akira Tozawa is backstage. He says he’s disappointed. He wanted to be 205 Live’s new GM. But now he can win the tournament and become the new Cruiserweight Champion. He then tells some random guy he’s fired.

TJP def. Tyler Bate via pinfall to advance to the 2nd round of the tournament.
