Cruiserweight title match, Lio Rush vs. Noam Dar set for WWE 205 Live


The Cruiserweight Championship will be defended on next Tuesday's episode of 205 Live.

Last night's show closed with the announcement that Drew Gulak will be challenging for Cedric Alexander's title next week. The match was set up after Gulak & Jack Gallagher defeated Alexander & Akira Tozawa, with Gulak submitting Tozawa with the Gu-Lock.

Alexander vs. Gulak is a rematch from the SummerSlam pre-show. Alexander retained his title at that pay-per-view by reversing a cradle after a series of pinning attempts. Their storyline has continued since, with Gulak wanting another shot at the title.

Buddy Murphy has also been in the title picture and will challenge for the Cruiserweight Championship in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia at WWE Super Show-Down on October 6.

Lio Rush vs. Noam Dar has also been confirmed for 205 Live next week. The show (along with SmackDown and the season two premiere of Mixed Match Challenge) is taking place at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
