205 Live continues its recent momentum with an eventful episode on WWE Network!
This week’s WWE 205 Live on WWE Network was faster paced than usual as it followed the usual SmackDown Live broadcast and the inaugural Mae Young Classic final of Kairi Sane vs. Shayna Baszler.
The cruiserweights had an uphill battle after a long night of WWE programming, but made the most out of am episode that was eventful and easy to watch. If Enzo Amore can somewhat revive his career prospects on 205 Live, hopefully the talented Kalisto can get the opportunity to as well.

WWE 205 Live on WWE Network – September 12, 2017
Thomas & Mack Center – Las Vegas, NV
Rich Swann defeated TJP (TJ Perkins). Crowd had trouble getting into this match after everything else they saw Tuesday night, but this was a very good affair you would expect from these two. Swann picked up the win with the Phoenix Splash.
The Fashion Police/Breezango arrested Drew Gulak for a fashion violation. Tyler Breeze, Fandango, and Gulak were hilarious here. Before Gulak was arrested, he made sure to give us another exciting Powerpoint presentation featuring Microsoft Office shouting him out on Twitter and a not-so-subtle artwork of a NJPW heavyweight champion Kazuchika Okada lookalike (poking fun at “extravagant ring gear”). This was significantly more entertaining than the last month of Fashion Police skits.
Cedric Alexander def. The Brian Kendrick via disqualification. It’s been a rough month for the Alexander character on 205 Live. First, he loses a cruiserweight title shot to Enzo Amore. This week, he gets attacked by 205 Live’s newest villain — Gentleman Jack Gallagher! Gallagher teased attacking Kendrick because everything needs to be a swerve in wrestling. Gallagher instead beats up Alexander with his umbrella William The Third and extends his hand to Kendrick. The two rivals shake hands and will presumably be unleashing hell on 205 Live going forward.
Gallagher is a very talented guy, but the timing of his heel turn is a bit odd when NJPW/ROH are currently pushing the Bullet Club’s supremely talented Marty Scurll, who also happens to be British, a heel, and carry around an umbrella. This will surely make for some fun Twitter banter…
Overall, this week’s 205 Live was quite entertaining with rarely seen interaction between the regular main roster and the cruiserweight division. Going forward, I would love to see Kendrick and Gallagher get some time to shine as a real tag team on Monday Night Raw and more main roster talent on 205 Live when it makes sense like Gulak and the Fashion Police.
