Cruiserweight wrestling fans are furious with WWE tapping 205 Live after SmackDown on Tuesday. The crowd response late in the night on Tuesday was very dull in comparison to earlier episodes.
Although the matches got good reactions online, the obvious reasons for dull crowd response are that it was tapped after SmackDown, late in the night, in front of an already fatigued crowd.
The “Conspiracy theorists” are now accusing Vince McMahon of destroying the Cruiserweight division. But the fact of the matter is that WWE is actually teeing up for its rival AEW live telecast in the future. And for now, instead of going Live before SmackDown, they have gone with post-show.
As the McMahon family has already announced to take fans’ opinions into consideration for their decisions, we may see 205 Live be shifted again to some other slot soon.
This week on 205 Live, Humberto Carrillo joined the roster and was defeated by Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy in a non-title match. In another match, Lio Rush and Lince Dorado faced off in a brutal encounter. More addition is expected in roaster of 205 live in coming weeks.
