This week’s episode of 205 Live saw Oney Lorcan defeat Humberto Carrillo in the first round of an ongoing 8-man tournament to find a suitable #1 contender to Buddy Murphy and the Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania.
Cedric Alexander also defeated Akira Tozawa in a battle of two former champions in the show’s main event to advance to the semifinal round, joining Tony Nese and Drew Gulak, who won their first round matches last Tuesday night.
It would appear that there will be no Cruiserweight presence at this Sunday’s WWE Fastlane pay-per-view, as both semifinal round matches will actually take place next Tuesday night on 205 Live. Tony Nese will clash with Drew Gulak, and Alexander will take on NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan in what should be a tremendous set of matches.
