WWE 205 Live moving back to Tuesdays


205 Live is officially moving back to Tuesday nights.

WWE has officially announced that 205 Live is moving back to airing live in its original time slot starting this week (Tuesday, January 15). The episodes will air on the WWE Network on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

The WWE Network schedule for this week and had listed the move back to Tuesdays before the official announcement was made.

205 Live aired in that post-SmackDown time slot on Tuesdays until it switched to airing on Wednesdays due to Mixed Match Challenge season two premiering in September. Following the end of the Mixed Match Challenge season, 205 Live continued to air on Wednesdays until now and was being taped before SmackDown.

Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy issuing a non-title open challenge to anyone who meets the 205-pound weight limit has been announced for Tuesday's 205 Live episode, which is taking place at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama. WWE has hyped that there will be fresh faces added to the cruiserweight division in 2019.

Murphy will defend the Cruiserweight title against Kalisto, Akira Tozawa, and Hideo Itami in a fatal four-way match at the Royal Rumble on January 27.
