Oney Lorcan set for WWE 205 Live tournament


Oney Lorcan is making his return to 205 Live next week, taking part in a tournament to decide Buddy Murphy’s next challenger.

Lorcan will face Humberto Carrillo in the third first round match. Akira Tozawa and Cedric Alexander in a battle of former Cruiserweight champions will take place next week as well, rounding out the tournament.

This isn’t the first time Lorcan has appeared on 205 Live. He appeared on the April 4, 2017 episode of the program, the day after WrestleMania 33,  losing to Rich Swann. He’s mostly been wrestling on NXT, teaming with Danny Burch.

Drew Gulak and Tony Nese advanced tonight to make it to the second round of the tournament. Nese defeated Kalisto with a running knee to advance, while Gulak made Brian Kendrick pass out after he applied the Gu-lock.

The winner of the tournament will face Buddy Murphy for the Cruiserweight title at WrestleMania 35.
