Two matches, 24/7 title defense set for WWE 205 Live

After one week of being taped at Full Sail University, 205 Live is back to airing live after SmackDown tonight.

WWE has announced two matches for the episode. Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush will team with Raul Mendoza against Ariya Daivari & Tony Nese, and Angel Garza will take on Jack Gallagher. WWE is also hyping that 24/7 Champion Samir Singh will defend his title on the episode.

Rush has defeated Mendoza in non-title matches on 205 Live each of the past two weeks. Rush retained his title against Garza on NXT this Wednesday, with Garza having his foot on the rope while he was being pinned.

WWE.com is pushing that Garza, Daivari, and Nese have their sights set on getting a Cruiserweight title shot.

Samir & Sunil Singh bailed on their 24/7 title handicap match against R-Truth on Monday's Raw. They were then attacked by Erick Rowan backstage.

Tonight's SmackDown and 205 Live are taking place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Last week's 205 Live was taped at Full Sail due to WWE taping SmackDown and Raw in Manchester, England last Friday.
