Two matches set for WWE 205 Live, Raul Mendoza in action


Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush is set for non-title action on tonight's 205 Live.

WWE has announced that Rush will face Oney Lorcan on 205 Live tonight. Isaiah "Swerve" Scott vs. Ariya Daivari will also take place on the episode, and Raul Mendoza will be in action.

This will be the first time Rush has appeared on 205 Live since winning the Cruiserweight title from Drew Gulak on the October 9 episode of NXT.

It was announced last week that “some of NXT’s best competitors under 205 pounds” will be appearing on NXT going forward. The Cruiserweight title is now called the NXT Cruiserweight Championship.

In the WWE Draft, Gulak and The Lucha House Party (Kalisto, Gran Metalik & Lince Dorado) went to SmackDown, while Humberto Carrillo and Akira Tozawa went to Raw.

Rush was on commentary for Angel Garza vs. Jack Gallagher on this week's NXT. Garza won, pointed to Rush, and gestured that he wants the Cruiserweight title.

Tonight's SmackDown and 205 Live are taking place at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
