Are there more potential challengers?

The Brian Kendrick vs. Mike Kanellis: WWE 205 Live, May 28, 2019

The Brian Kendrick and Mike Kanellis finally settle their rivalry inside the squared circle in a hard-hitting singles bout.

Despite WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese’s desire to defend his title against Akira Tozawa, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick did not name The Stamina Monster as the next challenger. Additionally, Maverick has been juggling his pursuit of the 24/7 Championship with his duties in the Cruiserweight division. While Tozawa had an incredible showing two weeks ago in a Fatal 5-Way Match, Mike Kanellis and Noam Dar also made their own respective cases for a title opportunity.

Kanellis brought his seething rivalry with The Brian Kendrick to a head as they faced off in singles competition last week. The Opportunist put forth an impressive showing against former champion and picked up a victory without the help of his wife, Maria. While 2019 has gotten off to a rocky start in the Cruiserweight division for Kanellis, his win against The Man with a Plan certainly makes a major case that he could be a worthy challenger for Nese.

Making his return to WWE 205 Live, Noam Dar gave his own notable performance in a bout against Mike Karma. While The Scottish Supernova’s offense and experience gave him a significant advantage, the most impressive aspect of Dar’s showing was that he’s splitting his time between NXT UK and WWE 205 Live. Dar previously had a bitter rivalry with Nese, one that could be rekindled and potentially lead to Dar taking the WWE Cruiserweight Championship across the pond.

Can Kanellis and Dar continue to make their case, or will more potential challengers emerge? Tune in to WWE 205 Live at 10/9 C, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.
