WWE 205 Live preview, March 5, 2019: The Cruiserweight Title Tournament heats up
Tonight on WWE 205 Live, Cedric Alexander battles Akira Tozawa and Oney Lorcan faces Humberto Carrillo in two high-stakes first-round matches in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.
Can Mike Kanellis score a victory?
Despite a string of recent losses, Mike Kanellis has impressed with his in-ring ability against the likes of Kalisto and Cedric Alexander. The fact remains that The Opportunist has not racked up any victories, however, regardless of his best efforts.
After pleading with WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick with the support of his wife Maria, Kanellis has been granted another chance to prove that he can indeed win. While there is likely disappointment that Kanellis is not competing in the Cruiserweight Championship Tournament, he can prove himself against Maverick’s handpicked opponent.
The tournament rages on
Following Tony Nese and Drew Gulak’s victories over Kalisto and The Brian Kendrick, respectively, the first round of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament — the winner of which will challenge reigning titleholder Buddy Murphy at WrestleMania — continues tonight on WWE 205 Live with two more high-stakes contests.
Fresh off his impressive win against inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP, Humberto Carrillo will battle NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan. Then, in a blockbuster collision of former WWE Cruiserweight Champions, Akira Tozawa and Cedric Alexander will face off to keep their WrestleMania dreams alive.
See who will advance in the tournament and come one step closer to facing WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Don’t miss WWE 205 Live, tonight at 10/9 C, streaming on the award-winning WWE Network.
