In-ring action is returning to 205 Live this week.

WWE has announced two matches for tonight's 205 Live episode: Tony Nese vs. Jack Gallagher and Tyler Breeze vs. Tehuti Miles. This will be the first time 205 Live has had new matches in over a month.

WWE has aired "The Matches That Made Me" 205 Live episodes over the past four weeks, featuring members of the cruiserweight division choosing one match that inspired them to become a wrestler and one of their favorite matches from their WWE careers. Brian Kendrick, Ariya Daivari, The Singh Brothers, and Oney Lorcan were spotlighted on those shows.

Nese and Gallagher are both out of contention in NXT's interim Cruiserweight Championship tournament. Nese went 0-3 in Group A, while Gallagher went 1-2 in Group B. Group action will wrap up with Kushida vs. Drake Maverick and El Hijo del Fantasma vs. Akira Tozawa taking place on NXT next Wednesday.

Miles, who joined the WWE Performance Center last August, has recently been used in enhancement matches on NXT and Raw.

Last week's 205 Live featured Jeremy Borash making his WWE television debut and hosting the show with Tom Phillips.
