Does Hideo Itami deserve a title opportunity?

Mustafa Ali vs. Buddy Murphy: WWE 205 Live, June 5, 2018

In a blockbuster main event, Mustafa Ali collides with Buddy Murphy as both look to prove that they are still primed for WWE Cruiserweight Championship contention in their rubber match, though Hideo Itami has machinations of his own.

Last week on WWE 205 Live, Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy squared off to prove who deserved another chance to battle Cedric Alexander for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match. The jaw-dropping battle brought the WWE Universe to the edge of their seats as Murphy and Ali threw caution to the wind and proved why they are worthy of the championship conversation.

As Ali prepared to execute his patented 054 and secure victory, Hideo Itami launched a surprise attack on both The Heart of WWE 205 Live and his opponent. After dismantling Murphy and Ali, Itami made it clear that he not only demanded respect, but also that he is ready for an opportunity to challenge for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.

On Twitter, Alexander responded to Itami, explaining that until he proves face-to-face in the ring that he deserves an opportunity instead of interfering in a match, he can wait at the back of the line.
