Curt Stallion vs. Raul Mendoza set for WWE 205 Live


Curt Stallion will face off with a member of Legado del Fantasma on 205 Live tonight.

WWE has announced that Stallion vs. Raul Mendoza will take place on tonight's episode of 205 Live. The match was set up by a promo from Legado del Fantasma's Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde. Mendoza challenged Stallion and -- responding to comments from Stallion last week -- said Stallion doesn't even deserve to mention Santos Escobar's name.

Stallion won a fatal five-way match on 205 Live two weeks ago to become the number one contender to Escobar's NXT Cruiserweight Championship. Last Friday, a promo from Stallion aired. It ended with him telling Escobar to smarten up.

A Legado del Fantasma video then aired on NXT this Wednesday. They listed the cruiserweights Escobar has defeated and asked who's next. Escobar pretended not to know Stallion's name and mockingly said he's sure Stallion is going to be a huge challenge.

WWE hasn't announced when or where the Escobar vs. Stallion Cruiserweight title match will be taking place. 

August Grey vs. Ariya Daivari is also set for tonight's 205 Live. The show airs on the WWE Network at 10 p.m. Eastern time.
