This week's episode of 205 Live will include an in-ring appearance by NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar.

WWE has announced that Legado del Fantasma (Escobar, Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde) will face Curt Stallion, Ashante "Thee" Adonis & August Grey on 205 Live tonight. This is a rematch from a match that took place before NXT TakeOver: WarGames went on the air this past Sunday. That match was released online by WWE and featured Escobar pinning Grey to get the win.

Stallion became the number one contender to Escobar's title by winning a fatal five-way match on 205 Live last month. WWE hasn't announced when or where their title match will be taking place.

Stallion defeated Mendoza in a singles match on 205 Live two weeks ago but was beaten down by Wilde and Mendoza after. Escobar then came out to the stage to stare Stallion down.

On the final episode of NXT before TakeOver: WarGames, there was an angle where Stallion was supposed to team with Leon Ruff against Escobar & Mendoza but was attacked by Legado del Fantasma before the show. Ruff ended up teaming with Damian Priest and pinning Mendoza to get the win.

The Bollywood Boyz vs. Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari is also set for tonight's 205 Live. The show airs on the WWE Network at 10 p.m. Eastern time.
