WWE airing Ariya Daivari 'Matches That Made Me' episode of 205 Live


For the second straight week, WWE is airing a 205 Live episode that won't feature any new matches.

"The Matches That Made Me: Ariya Daivari" will air as tonight's 205 Live. It will feature Daivari taking "an in-depth look at the match that inspired him to become a WWE Superstar, as well as the most memorable match of his career."

A Brian Kendrick edition of "The Matches That Made Me" aired on 205 Live last week. It featured WWE airing Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior from WrestleMania VI and Kendrick's Cruiserweight Classic match against Kota Ibushi. There were also comments from Kendrick leading into the matches airing.

It was said on last week's Kendrick episode that 205 Live would be taking a look at some members of the cruiserweight division while NXT's interim Cruiserweight title tournament is taking place.

Jake Atlas (1-0), Kushida (1-0), Tony Nese (0-1), and Drake Maverick (0-1) are in Group A of the interim title tournament, while Akira Tozawa (1-0), El Hijo del Fantasma (1-0), Jack Gallagher (0-1), and Isaiah "Swerve" Scott (0-1) are in Group B. Each participant will face the other wrestlers in their group once, with the group leaders then advancing to the finals. Any ties will be broken by head-to-head record.

The interim title tournament is happening because -- due to the coronavirus pandemic -- NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin is currently unable to travel and defend his title.
