#6 The probable challenger for the 205 Live Championship
Earlier this week, Drake Maverick mentioned that he was willing to give a championship opportunity to Buddy Murphy due to the attack he executed on Cedric Alexandar. However, the challenger failed his latest weigh-in and has been disqualified.
Notably, the event will be hosted in Saudi Arabia. Iran and Saudi Arabia don’t have any diplomatic relations since the attack on Saudi Embassy in 2016.
It is probable that WWE will have Ariya Daivari, the Persian Lion, win the next week’s Gauntlet match to become the number one contender. It’s a long shot, but this will make sure that the match draws a lot of attention. Not to mention, the current champion will gain the support from the local crowd ahead of this match.
