If they don't repackage 205 with a new name/focus along with NXT from the 14th I would be shocked. 205 has zero draw, they completely ruined any promise of it by not getting behind it properly. If anything the name now puts some people on here off.

Go the full hour like it used to be and use it as the secondary NXT show or new PC show. Fine by me.
To be fair.

They push Neville and he left because he thought he was a star (isn’t in AEW either)

They push Enzo and he gets in a bunch of trouble

They push TJP and he’s a dick and got into backstage trouble

They push Rich Swann and he gets arrested for domestic violence

They hire Tajiri and he gets a knee injury and their doctor would not clear him

—————————

The original 205 Live relaunch was snake bit like the ECW relaunch


Sandman gets them sued
Sabu and RVD gets arrested
Axl failed his first drug test
Jazz gets called a bully by Trinity
Angle quits and Show quits

I agree, also they had the best intentions putting the cruiserweights on Raw and taping at the main roster shows. In theory they got the best exposure and were pushed as main roster. However the taping after the end of Smackdown was madness. The appeal of the CWC (Cruiserweight Classic) was the smaller venue packed with hardcore fans. Ironically they did the right thing moving 205 back to the CWC (Capitol Wrestling Centre) but it was too little too late at that point. The buzz was dead and the top brass didn't give a shit about 205 either.

Had they just kept 205 in full sail from the start but with a feature match or two on Raw to give audience a taste I think things would be a different story today. As it stands it is 205 in name only now.

Valentina Feroz was decent tonight, definitely has potential in the ring and has a good look. She just needs to find her personality/gimmick and voice. Very green in that respect.
