WWE News: Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy added to 205 Live Tours
Raw Superstars Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy will be added to the upcoming 205 Live tour scheduled for January 2018.
The announcement came from WWE’s Twitter account and featured the following press release regarding the impending matches:
The war between Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt reaches new heights, as these two bitter rivals will do battle during the WWE 205 Live Tour! Don’t miss the chance to see epic confrontations between The Woken Superstar and The Eater of Worlds, as well as all the action-packed excitement of the WWE Cruiserweight division.
The 205 Live brand live events were expected to be exclusive to the Cruiserweight competitors, but the addition of Wyatt and Hardy means that the 205 Live tour will be primarily composed of 205 Live stars rather than being a Cruiserweight-exclusive tour.
Including Nia Jax, who will serve as a special guest referee for the Cruiserweight Championship matches, that makes three non-Cruiserweight Raw superstars added to the 205 Live brand live events. More Raw superstars could be added in the future, but that is pure speculation.
Wyatt and Hardy have been feuding on Monday Night Raw for the past few weeks, but the announcement of both men being added to the 205 Live tour means that their feud will continue into the new year.
The 205 Live tour will begin on Friday, January 19 in Kingston, Rhode Island and end on Sunday, January 21 in Poughkeepsie, New York, which is the day before the WWE Monday Night Raw 25th Anniversary at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
