Triple threat match announced for next week's WWE 205 Live


On 205 Live's go-home show for the Royal Rumble, all three of Buddy Murphy's next challengers will be taking part in a triple threat match.

Kalisto vs. Akira Tozawa vs. Hideo Itami has been announced for next week's episode of 205 Live. Those three wrestlers will be challenging for Murphy's Cruiserweight Championship in a fatal four-way match at the Royal Rumble.

Kalisto, Tozawa, and Itami all won qualifying matches over the last couple of weeks to set up the title match for the pay-per-view. Kalisto defeated Lio Rush to qualify, Tozawa defeated Drew Gulak, and Itami defeated Cedric Alexander.

205 Live moved back to airing live on Tuesday's after SmackDown this week. The show featured Murphy issuing a non-title open challenge, with Murphy defeating the debuting Humberto Carrillo. Carrillo was formerly known as Ultimo Ninja before signing with WWE. He had been wrestling in NXT before joining 205 Live.

Next Tuesday's SmackDown and 205 Live are taking place at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.
