WWE 205 Live Preview, May 15, 2018: Cruiserweights vs UK Division
Tuesday, May 15, 2018
Tonight from London, England, the Superstars of WWE 205 Live and the U.K. division will team up and compete against one another on WWE 205 Live! Plus, how will WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander respond to his upcoming title defense against Buddy Murphy?
Cruiserweights Across The Pond:
Last week on WWE 205 Live, General Manager Drake Maverick informed WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander that when the most action-packed hour of television emanated from London, the Superstars of the Cruiserweight division would compete with and against the Superstars of the U.K. division. Maverick expected The Soul of WWE 205 Live to tell his fellow Cruiserweights to bring their A-game and be ready to showcase what WWE 205 Live is all about.
The Superstars of the U.K. division are no strangers to WWE 205 Live. The last time the home of Cruiserweights was hosted in the United Kingdom, inaugural U.K. Champion Tyler Bate was in action, as were Mark Andrews, James Drake and Joseph Connors. Both Bate and Andrews competed in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament earlier this year, where Andrews picked up an impressive victory against Tony Nese.
How will the stars of the U.K. division fare when the Cruiserweights come to their home turf this time?
Buddy Murphy Earns His Title Opportunity:
Last week, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick revealed that after NXT Superstar Buddy Murphy turned in an impressive performance against Mustafa Ali – coupled with his heated rivalry with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander – that the Australia-native had earned the opportunity to challenge Alexander for the title on the May 29 episode of WWE 205 Live.
Since making his presence felt in the WWE Cruiserweight division, Murphy has shown his dedication to competing on WWE 205 Live by jumping at every opportunity presented and working hard to maintain the bodyweight necessary to qualify for the Cruiserweight division. Although he missed out on his first opportunity at the Greatest Royal Rumble event due to missing weight, Murphy immediately rebounded and locked his sights right back on Alexander’s coveted championship.
With just two weeks until the highly-anticipated contest, can Cedric maintain the momentum that has brought him unfettered success in recent months, or has Murphy figured out a way to shake The Soul of WWE 205 Live’s confidence?
