205 Live moving to Wednesday nights on WWE Network


With Mixed Match Challenge season two premiering on Tuesday, WWE's programming schedule will be undergoing a bit of a shift.

WWE announced today that 205 Live will be airing at 7 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesdays starting with this coming week's television: "Starting next week, @WWE205Live heads to Wednesday nights at 7pm ET on the award-winning @WWENetwork! #205Live." The move was indicated on the WWE Network schedule before being officially confirmed by the company.

205 Live will be part of a block on Wednesdays with NXT and the Mae Young Classic.

WWE hasn't announced if there will be any changes to 205 Live being taped after SmackDown or if the show will be moving back to its live format on Tuesdays when Mixed Match Challenge is over.

205 Live aired live after Mixed Match Challenge during season one, but season two's episodes will be 30 minutes long instead of the previous 20 minutes. Mixed Match Challenge season two will debut on Facebook Watch after SmackDown on Tuesday. There will be 14 episodes, with the tournament culminating at TLC on December 16.

Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander defending his title against Drew Gulak is set for Wednesday's 205 Live. Lio Rush will also face Noam Dar on the show.
