205 Live is one of the best shows currently being produced by the WWE, along with NXT & NXT UK notably, yet it seems that no one is watching. The cruiserweight division are week in, week out putting on some of the most compelling, athletic & hard hitting matches within the WWE. So I’ve put together a quick guide for all of you to get to grips with the basics & start your journey towards loving 205 Live as much as I do.

Active Roster:

Tony Nese, Akira Tozawa, Ariya Daivari, The Brian Kendrick, Drew Gulak, Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Gran Metalik, Humberto Carrillo, Kalisto, Lince Dorado, Lio Rush, Mike Kanellis, Oney Lorcan.

Notable Alumni:

Neville (PAC), Mustafa Ali, Buddy Murphy, Cedric Alexander.

These men where the defining wrestlers & building blocks for the entire division & show. They built this thing from the ground up coming from The Cruiserweight Classic, NXT & RAW to completely redefine what it means to be a cruiserweight & what being a wrestler under 205 means.

These are the men helping to build the foundations for NXT UK.
