Mustafa Ali vs. Gentleman Jack Gallagher and Buddy Murphy vs. Ariya Daivari announced for next week!
WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick revealed the final two matches of the first round in the 16-man Cruiserweight Championship Tournament. Next week will see Gentleman Jack Gallagher – who Maverick commanded to ditch the suit for traditional ring gear – battle the high-flying Mustafa Ali. Additionally, Ariya Daivari will attempt to advance in the tournament against NXT Superstar Buddy Murphy.
Determined to seize the opportunity for a potential WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match at WrestleMania, NXT’s Buddy Murphy has trained harder than ever and is ready to show the WWE Universe that there is truly a new era of WWE 205 Live.
Maverick made it clear to Gentleman Jack Gallagher that he is not a fan of the suit Gallagher wears inside the squared circle and demanded that his fellow countryman wear more traditional ring gear. Additionally, Drake reminded Gallagher that he is one of the best competitors in the world. The unorthodox British Superstar has a huge opportunity against the talented Mustafa Ali next week; will he heed Maverick’s advice?
