Here’s the recap of all the high-flying action you may have missed from this week’s episode of 205 Live. Watch the Cruiserweights every Tuesday night at 8 PM ET on the WWE Network.

This week’s episode of 205 Live has general manager Drake Maverick making a match announcement, competition between 205 Live and NXT (featuring NXT refs),
205 Live and NXT regular Oney Lorcan, and another can’t miss main event.

Maverick addresses the audience by telling them that his reaction to Mike Kanellis last week as inappropriate as a GM, but justified as a man. Kanellis won’t be facing him as a general manager, but as a man. They finally come face to face next week in an Unsanctioned match. To make the match even sweeter, if Kanellis wins, he gets a shot at the Cruiserweight Championship.

24/7 Title-chaser Maverick juxtaposed against 205 Live general manager Maverick is weird, especially on consecutive nights. However, I buy both Mavericks and enjoy them for various reasons. Serious Maverick makes more sense facing Kanellis. After the way Kanellis has been treated, it’s good to finally see him get his opportunity. Hopefully, Maria won’t be ringside so the focus will only be on the match.
