WWE 205 Live highlights Online, Winners, Grades, Reaction and Highlights from June 12, Live Update, Odds, News, Fight Time and more info.
WWE feels about the cruiserweight division, all you need to do is look at how the stars of 205 Live are being booked for pay-per-views.Or maybe we should say how they are not being booked because Backlash completely ignored the entire division and Money in the Bank looks like it will do the same thing.Being shown exclusively on the WWE Network means 205 Live gets a lot less promotion. The division is supposed to be part of the Raw roster but we haven’t seen a cruiserweight match on Monday in months.
Ali has been one of WWE’s biggest MVPs in 2018, producing great matches regardless of who his opponent is. Nese hardly excites me as a character, but his in-ring abilities can’t be questioned and he had a good performance here. Cedric Alexander and Buddy Murphy didn’t overshadow the action by being at ringside, so this was an entertaining encounter on the whole as Ali keeps himself in the Cruiserweight Championship conversation. Murphy vs. Ali vs. Itami next week should be stellar.
205 Live this year, but Gulak, Gallagher and Kendrick have just as much potential to be a terrific trio as well. Their styles compliment each other very well and they showed solid chemistry in this match. I liked that everything came across as so smooth and clean in addition to it being nicely paced. The final few minutes were especially enjoyable and Dorado cheating to win was interesting. Percy Watson did play it up on commentary as it being a case of “what goes around, comes around,” though.
