Two tournament matches set for next week's WWE 205 Live


The first two matches for the upcoming 205 Live #1 Contender tournament have been announced.

Next week on 205 Live, Kalisto will face Tony Nese and Brian Kendrick will face Drew Gulak in the opening matches of the tournament, which is a single elimination eight man tournamentThe remaining four participants have yet to be announced.

On tonight’s episode of 205 Live, two matches took place that 205 General Manager Drake Maverick said would have big implications coming out of the tournament. In those matches, Humberto Carrillo defeated TJP while Mike Kanellis defeated Cedric Alexander. It seems based on those two wins, they will likely be a part of the tournament.

The eventual winner of the tournament will receive a title match against Buddy Murphy at WrestleMania 35. Murphy has been champion since October 6, winning the title at WWE Super Show-Down in Australia. Most recently, he defeated Akira Tozawa at Elimination Chamber.

205 Live next week will take place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
