Maverick vs. Kanellis 'unsanctioned' match set for WWE 205 Live


An "unsanctioned" match is set for next week's 205 Live.

On last night's episode, it was announced that Drake Maverick vs. Mike Kanellis will take place on 205 Live next Tuesday and will have an unsanctioned stipulation.

If Kanellis wins, he'll get a shot at the Cruiserweight Championship. Drew Gulak currently holds the title. He defeated NXT's Isaiah "Swerve" Scott (Shane Strickland) in a non-title match in the main event of last night's 205 Live.

Maverick vs. Kanellis was set up by an angle last week. Maverick attacked Kanellis after he insulted Maverick's wife Renee Michelle.

Akira Tozawa & Brian Kendrick also accepted a challenge from The Singh Brothers for a match on 205 Live next week.

The FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee is hosting next Tuesday's SmackDown and 205 Live. WWE appears to have set up that Women's Tag Team Champions The IIconics (Peyton Royce & Billie Kay) will face Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville in a non-title match on SmackDown. Rose hyped that she and Deville would deserve a title shot if they win.

Royce & Kay got themselves counted out in a title defense against Asuka & Kairi Sane on SmackDown last week. Asuka & Sane then laid out Royce & Kay.
