WWE 205 Live tournament semifinals set for next week


Both semifinal matches in 205 Live's number one contender's tournament are set for next week.

Tony Nese vs. Drew Gulak and Cedric Alexander vs. NXT's Oney Lorcan will be taking place on next Tuesday's 205 Live, with the winners advancing to the finals. The winner of the tournament will challenge for Buddy Murphy's Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania 35.

Alexander advanced to the semifinals by defeating Akira Tozawa in the main event of this week's 205 Live, while Lorcan defeated Humberto Carrillo to advance. This was the second time that Lorcan has wrestled on 205 Live. He previously lost to Rich Swann on the show in April 2017.

Nese defeated Kalisto and Gulak defeated Brian Kendrick in first round matches last week.

At last year's WrestleMania, Alexander won the Cruiserweight Championship by defeating Mustafa Ali in a tournament final. He held the title until dropping it to Murphy at Super Show-Down in October.

WrestleMania 35 is taking place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on April 7.
