Re: New CW Division Show: 205 Live premieres Nov. 29 on WWE Network

Some questions, less so in response to the press release and more to some of the knee jerk reactions from others in the thread.

Firstly, what is 205 a reference to?

Secondly, what is this show and what does it mean? Is it like a Cruiserweight NXT, aka a separate brand all of its own? Have they taken the CWs away from Raw despite everything and given them to SmackDown, but packaged it to deflect the fact?

Or is this just Superstars or Main Event? A meaningless collection of matches which doesn't take place in continuity? IE the CWs will wrestle on 205 and then carry on like nothing has happened with their actual stories on Raw?

All these idiots had to do, was to put the CW division to SmackDown.

Can they not just get rid of the cruiserweight division from Raw? For sure call some guys up to the main roster for regular spots but the title is just languishing atm.

They've fucked over the CW division on Raw, and I dare say giving them a show for an hr a week will still fuck them over.

Re: New CW Division Show: 205 Live premieres Nov. 29 on WWE Network

Ugh, So we have to move Talking Smack back a fucking hour just to add ANOTHER HOUR of content? Yeah, fuck it.

I like the Cruiserweights, and I would love if they were just on their own show every week with Triple H at the helm. But why does it have to be on Tuesday? Seriously. Tape it before Smackdown and air it on Thursday, or air it right after NXT on Wednesday.

I mean, they have the word “Live” in the title so I’m assuming it’s a “Live show.” So, what? Are you going to film this right after Smackdown, after the fans had already been there for 3 hours with the Main Event and Smackdown tapings? If that’s so, the crowds are going to be dead as fuck or they’ll probably just leave after Smackdown has concluded.

I repeat again, TOO MUCH FUCKING CONTENT. The Cruiserweight Division is on Raw, but they have to invade Smackdown’s night just to get EVEN MORE content? When they already have 3 hours to fill on Monday?

It’s stupid. It will flop. And it will be a massive waste of time. This is not taking anything away from the talent, but I watch enough wrestling as is and I’m not going to stick around for another hour of stuff they should be doing on Monday nights. Put the Cruiserweights on NXT, give them their own show on a different night, but this is just stupid.

And to clarify, the idea is not stupid. But their positioning and planning is. If this is the case, I sure as hell ain’t sticking around past Smackdown to see what happens.

Re: New CW Division Show: 205 Live premieres Nov. 29 on WWE Network

Bizarre choice putting this on after Smackdown. Putting it after NXT, like the Cruiserweight Classic would be logical, having it taped at Full Sail would be logical, where the Cruiserweights would get treated like superstars would make everybody look good.

Having it live, right after Smackdown seems odd. The main roster audiance hasn't treated the Cruserwieghts division very well at all, they get crickets. I don't see how this will change when you put it at the end of a Smackdown taping when the crowd is probably gonna be exhausted anyway. You'll be seeing people leaving the arena in their droves!

I was never really a fan of the Cruiserweight division to begin with. I was willing to give it a go but their treatment on Raw has been awful. With a roster as thin as it is today, I don't see the logic in boxing part of it off in their own division. If it was me I would keep all the talent and just assimilate them into the main roster.

I always try to defend WWE and I will definately be watching this but the placement of this show has baffled me xD

So is this Vince's way to try and bury SD yet again but moving TS back an hour? Very lame this cruiserweight division sucks and this company in general sucks

Probably should've done this from the start.

Or just use the belt as NXT's mid-card title

Happy with this, Allows them to build some other storylines within the division besides the mandatory one for the title and will allow fans to get to know the superstars better for when they're on RAW.

Can't see any issues with this besides the bad time slot since they seem intent on it being live. They'll still be getting the same amount of time on RAW this is just another extension of Main Event/Superstars but exclusively for the cruiserweight division.

The CW division failed so fast that they're transitioning it into a Network exclusive .

Let me guess, they film it during Superstars? Either way, I'm glad this shit is getting phased out of RAW. DEUCES!
