Number one contender's match set for next week's WWE 205 Live


A match with Cruiserweight Championship implications is set for the 205th episode of 205 Live.

In a video that aired on 205 Live last night, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar announced that a number one contender's fatal five-way match will take place on 205 Live next Friday. The match is in celebration of the show being the 205th episode of 205 Live.

When the winner of the number one contender's match will be challenging for Escobar's title hasn't been revealed.

Escobar said during his promo last night that he's defeated everyone that has come his way so far and that will never change -- but he welcomes the challenge. Escobar said he's worked with NXT general manager William Regal to give multiple cruiserweights the chance of getting a shot at the NXT Cruiserweight Championship. Escobar warned the winner to watch their back at all times.

The five wrestlers who will be taking part in the number one contender's fatal five-way match haven't been revealed, but Tony Nese, Brian Kendrick, Ariya Daivari, Curt Stallion, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, August Grey, Ashante "Thee" Adonis, The Bollywood Boyz (Sunil Singh & Samir Singh), and Ever-Rise (Chase Parker & Matt Martel) are featured on the match graphic.
