Cruiserweight title match added to WWE TLC

A Cruiserweight Championship match has been added to the card for Sunday's TLC pay-per-view.

WWE has announced that Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy will defend his title against Cedric Alexander at TLC on Sunday. The PPV is taking place at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.

Alexander was announced as Murphy's next challenger on last week's episode of 205 Live. On the November 28 episode of the show, Alexander teamed with Mustafa Ali and pinned Murphy during a match where Murphy teamed with Tony Nese.

Murphy vs. Noam Dar in a non-title match and Alexander vs. Nese are set for this week's 205 Live.

Murphy won the Cruiserweight title from Alexander at Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia this October. Murphy then retained the title against Ali at Survivor Series last month.
