Tonight's WWE 205 Live Episode Reportedly Nixed After Late Decision And Match Announcements
 
Quote:

A "late call" was reportedly made at the Staples Center in Los Angeles today, resulting in tonight's WWE 205 Live episode being nixed.

The WWE website and social media pages previously announced Tony Nese vs. Humberto Carrillo and Brian Kendrick vs. Akira Tozawa singles matches for tonight's episode. Those match announcements were deleted about an hour ago, shortly after they were originally posted. There is currently no 205 Live preview for tonight on the WWE website.

Instead of taping a new episode after SmackDown goes off the air tonight, WWE will now air a repeat of a previous 205 Live episode on the WWE Network, according to John Pollock on Twitter. Pollock noted that this was a "late call" made today, after the matches were announced.

Tonight's 205 Live episode will be the first to air on Friday nights. The show previously aired on Tuesdays after SmackDown, but that was changed due to SmackDown premiering on FOX Friday nights with tonight's episode.

It was reported last week, via Wrestling Observer Radio, that the future of 205 Live was still up in the air. WWE officials were reportedly discussing several options for the show, including doing away with it altogether. Triple H recently made comments about 205 Live being ran under the WWE NXT umbrella, and that was made clear this week when they re-branded the WWE Cruiserweight Title as the NXT Cruiserweight Title. Champion Drew Gulak is set to defend that title against #1 contender Lio Rush on next Wednesday's NXT episode on the USA Network. It was also recently revealed that the NXT creative team is now booking 205 Live.

Stay tuned for updates on the status of 205 Live and remember to join us for live SmackDown 20th Anniversary coverage at 7:30pm ET.

Fucking hell...

At least putting it on NXT will inject some fresh blood into the division like Gargano, Kushida, Strong etc.

It's over. As if the writing wasn't on the wall since Mania.

Just merge it with NXT already.

I really, really, really don't understand why they can't just shoot the show before Smackdown. Really, what is the problem? :lol They did it during the last Mixed Match Challenge, the better reactions were undeniable... Why actively produce a lesser show just so it can be LIVE? I do think there's something to the thinking that they just canned it for the week because they had Fox execs in the building and didn't want to subject them to that hour of dead crowds and walk outs, but when you're producing a show you actively have to hide from people then surely something has to change? :lol

The show is done. It is yet another complete head scratcher. Vince wants AEW to succeed. I almost feel Russo was right and Vince has a stake in AEW.

The people that do like 205 and watch it are exactly the type that would give AEW a chance. Why would you give those fans an extra hour a week they could fill with AEW by cancelling 205?

Vince and whomever makes the decisions are so moronic they have to be trolling.
