WWE 205 Live Results (June 11, 2019): Main roster star debuts on 205 Live, #1 Contenders match ends in controversial fashion
With only a few weeks left until WWE Stomping Grounds, 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick decided to get to business. He accepted the criticism that he'd been preoccupied with the 24/7 Championship. Tonight, we'll finally find out who will challenge Tony Nese for the Cruiserweight Championship.
Akira Tozawa, Humberto Carrillo, Oney Lorcan, and Drew Gulak would face off in a Fatal-4-Way to determine the new #1 contender. All four men have been extremely impressive as of late, picking up some huge wins and proving that they deserve an opportunity at the champ. In order to avoid more criticism, Maverick decided to make this match instead of picking one man over the other three.
However, we started off tonight's show with a huge surprise from Drake Maverick. Triple Crown Tag Team Champion Chad Gable made his official 205 Live debut against Gentleman Jack Gallagher.

Backstage, Mike & Maria Kanellis chased down Maverick, furious at a new face taking their spotlight.
