Two huge Cruiserweight Championship Tournament matches set for Tuesday on WWE 205 Live
This Tuesday on WWE 205 Live, the first round of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament will continue as Roderick Strong battles Hideo Itami, and Kalisto goes head-to-head against Lince Dorado.
Last week, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan kicked off a new era for the Cruiserweight division by introducing Drake Maverick as WWE 205 Live’s new General Manager. Maverick wasted little time making headlines when he announced a 16-man Cruiserweight Championship Tournament to crown a new Cruiserweight Champion -- with the finals to take place at WrestleMania 34!
In the evening’s two subsequent first-round matchup, Cedric Alexander moved on to the next round by overcoming Gran Metalik, and TJP advanced by scoring a huge victory over the first-ever U.K. Champion Tyler Bate.
With the tone set for an intense tournament, all eyes will be glued to WWE 205 Live this Tuesday to see what Strong brings to the table against Itami and if Kalisto will rise above Dorado in two highly anticipated showdowns.
