205 Live will be in the time slot that Talking Smack was on

According to PWInsidersome of the names scheduled for the first live taping of 205 are Akira Tozawa, Gran Metalik, and The Bollywood Boys (Gurv & Harv Sihra).

Some of the expected names to appear on the tapings are Cruiserweight Champion The Brian Kendrick, T.J Perkins and Rich Swann, Noam Dar, and Tony Nese, among others, who are signed and currently appear on Raw. 

Jack Gallagher is a name who has not yet been scheduled for 205 Live but is said to be coming in very soon. Fans are eager for Gallagher to start appearing in the Cruiserweight Division and 205 Live because of his unique style of wrestling that he brought to the Cruiserweight Classic, even though he just wrestled two matches in the tournament.

An example of that can be seen in his unique submission in the match below

A Reddit user who attended AAW’s Windy City Classic XII a couple of days ago said that Prince Mustafa Ali (who was also part of the Cruiserweight Classic) announced in the show that it would be his last AAW(All American Wrestling) appearance since he is “going somewhere else”. He said that he could not talk about it just yet.

The crowd there chanted “205”, and Mustafa Ali reportedly acknowledged the chants with a smile. So it is likely that there is another wrestler to bolster the ranks of 205 Live.

Mustafa Ali wrestled Lince Dorado, who is also part of the Raw roster, in the first round of the Cruiserweight Classic. Watch their encounter here:


Mauro Ranallo and Corey Graves will be the ones on the commentary booth for the one-hour Cruiserweight-exclusive program. As mentioned, 205 Live will premiere right after Smackdown Live  on November 29th and is set to replace Talking Smack’s time slot. However, Talking Smack will likely be pre-taped and will air right after 205 Live.
