#8 Cruiserweight Title

The Cruiserweight Championship helped turn Buddy Murphy
The Cruiserweight Championship helped turn Buddy Murphy's career around.

Current Champion/Former Champion: Buddy Murphy/Cedric Alexander

How long he/she will hold title: Might drop title at WrestleMania but should hold title until early summer

Like the US Championship, the Cruiserweight Championship is usually relegated to showing up on the pre-shows for PPVs.

And what a shame that it is. If you haven't watched the last two pre-shows of the Royal Rumble or the Elimination Chamber, then you missed some great performances from not only the current champion in Murphy but also his challengers.

His Fatal Four-Way at the Royal Rumble was fast-paced and fun to watch and showcased the strengths of Kalisto, Akira Tozawa and Hideo Itami.

And his singles match against Tozawa at the Elimination Chamber was just as wonderful a match with some exciting high spots.

The fact is, WWE would be better served having put these matches on the main card, either to kick a show off or follow a match that might be slower-paced than usual.

205 Live might be coming to an end sometime soon, but Murphy and Cedric Alexander would slot in perfectly on either brand.

The title will likely still exist, but the show may not. The integration of its stars has already begun with Drew Gulak showing up in NXT, Noam Dar in NXT UK and Mustafa Ali on SmackDown.


Hopefully, for the hard-working superstars of 205 Live, the title will start to get a little more attention on the main cards of future PPVs.
