Buddy Murphy says he’s been in the WWE for five years. He’s had success. He’s a former NXT tag team champion. If you take that away from him, he’s done nothing. Everyone one in 205 Live has had everything handed to them. Nobody on the roster does what he does. They haven’t gone through the things he’s gone through. Nothing was handed to him.
It was up to him to make a statement. Cedric Alexander doesn’t have a chance. No one on the roster does. He’s the next Cruiserweight Champion.
- Cedric Alexander vs Buddy Murphy for the Cruiserweight Title in 2 weeks.
- Hideo Itami vs Akira Tozawa next week.
Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali are in the locker room. Alexander asks Ali if he’s ready for tonight. Ali says he was born ready for nights like this. Flash Morgan Webster enters the locker room. Alexander welcomes him. Webster says 205 Live will get some much-needed flash.
Dasha interviews Drew Gulak, James Drake and Joseph Conners backstage. She asks them how plan on working together as a team. Drake and Conners say they’ve already tagged together before. Drew Gulak says he’s been them through rigorous team building exercises. It doesn’t matter if it’s their first time teaming up. James Drake and Joseph Conners are two of the best mat technicians in the UK; and Gulak is the best submission specials in the WWE. They will batter their opponents into submission.
