WWE reveals participants for 205 Live number one contender's match

The participants are set for tonight's fatal five-way number one contender's match on 205 Live.

WWE has announced that Curt Stallion, August Grey, Ashante "Thee" Adonis, Tony Nese, and Ariya Daivari will face off in tonight's fatal five-way match. The winner will get a future shot at Santos Escobar's NXT Cruiserweight Championship, though WWE hasn't announced when the title match will be taking place.

In the main event of last week's 205 Live, Nese & Daivari defeated Grey & Stallion after Daivari used his chain as a weapon and struck Grey. Mansoor defeated Adonis on 205 Live last week.

Stallion and Grey (Anthony Greene) are former EVOLVE wrestlers who were announced as new WWE signees last month.

Tonight's number one contender's match is in celebration of this week's 205 Live being the 205th episode of the show. The match was announced via a video that aired on 205 Live last week. Escobar cut a promo saying that he's defeated everyone that has come his way so far and that will never change -- but he welcomes the challenge. Escobar said he worked with NXT general manager William Regal to give multiple cruiserweights the chance of getting a shot at his title. Escobar warned the winner to watch their back at all times.

Escobar retained his title against Jake Atlas on this Wednesday's episode of NXT.
