Who can survive the gauntlet?
Despite an impressive performance in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament and a bold attack on WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander, Buddy Murphy was unable to maintain the weight necessary to compete on WWE 205 Live. As a result, General Manager Drake Maverick had no choice but to rescind Murphy’s title opportunity. However, Maverick is determined to present a challenger for Cedric Alexander’s WWE Cruiserweight Title at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. That opponent will be determined tonight in a Gauntlet Match!
The Gauntlet Match will test all who participate and prove which Superstar has the heart of a champion. Last week, Drew Gulak made it clear that he plans to force every competitor to tap out. And while Gulak said he was moving away from his rivalry with his former friend and tag team partner Tony Nese, The Premier Athlete revealed he is entering the Gauntlet Match and hopes to cross paths with Gulak during the Gauntlet Match.

It also seems he has some unfinished business with a former friend... #WWE @WWE 205Live pic.twitter.com/jpwewVp7RA
