Fatal 5 Way Match for Cruiserweight Title Shot Announced to Commemorate WWE 205 Live Milestone

Next Friday’s episode of WWE 205 Live will be its 205th episode and the show will feature a match with championship implications.

WWE has announced that the 205th episode of 205 Live will feature a Fatal 5 Way match where the winner will become the number one contender for the WWE NXT Cruiserweight Championship.

The current champion, Santos Escobar gave a promo during the last episode of 205 Live where he said that he had already defeated every challenger and was ready for someone new.

He said he had spoken to NXT General Manager William Regal about it and the Fatal 5 Way was a way to give multiple cruiserweights a “chance”.

There have been no details given as to when the number one contender will get his title match. Neither have the participants of the Fatal 5 Way been announced yet.

There has, however, been a graphic released for the match, featuring 11 WWE superstars: Sunil Singh, Samir Singh, Ashante “Thee” Adonis, Ariya Daivari, August Grey, Tony Nese, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, The Brian Kendrick, Chase Parker, Curt Stallion, and Matt Martel.

The participants of the Fatal 5 Way will be picked from the superstars on that graphic and will be confirmed by WWE soon.
