We have a new title match for our first pay-per-view of 2019.
On this week’s “Best Of 2018” episode of 205 Live, an announcement was made regarding Buddy Murphy’s defense of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at next month’s WWE Royal Rumble PPV.
Murphy will be defending his title in a Fatal-4-Way match against three competitors, two of which that will be decided in qualifying matches on next week’s 205 Live show.
205 Live next week will feature Kalisto vs. Lio Rush and Akira Tozawa vs. Drew Gulak in qualifying matches, with the winners moving on to fill two of the three challenger spots against Murphy at WWE Royal Rumble.
