As WWE’s premiere Cruiserweight show heads towards it’s 100th episode, it has appeared that 205 Live has been given a change of scenery.
As cornfirmed by 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick as well as the shows pages of WWE.com and WWE Network schedule, it appears that 205 Live has been moved to Wednesday nights at 7PM (6PM Central) or midnight on Thursday GMT. This would make sense with Mixed Match Challenge returning to Facebook Watch this week (Tues., Sept. 18) after SmackDown Live airs on USA Network.
The brand will still tape along with SmackDown and MMC on Tuesdays but whether it will be after the mixed tag tournament show as it was earlier this year, or moved to before the blue brand tapes remains to be confirmed.
WWE’s have stacked up a big show for the move, headlined by a SummerSlam rematch of Cedric Alexander defending his Cruiserweight title against Drew Gulak alongside Noam Dar facing Lio Rush in singles action.
This will mean that WWE will now have three straight nights (four, on pay-per-view weeks) with two and half to three hours of WWE programming each week, at least for the duration of both the Mixed Match Challenge and the Mae Young Classic.
