How long until 205 Live disappears?

I feel sooner or later the guys in there are going to get tired of being stuck in a cruiserweight exclusive show on the Network with no tv time for most ,barely any recognition from the audience and being on PPV preshows despite putting on better matches than the majority of the main roster.

Tbh it seems like the CWC was the only moment the cruiserweight division mattered , now look how much no one ever mention any of its wrestlers or make threads about to 205

What do you think ?

Tomorrow hopefully. I'd only keep Mike Kanellis too.

Tell your boyfriend if he even exists that he shouldn't trust you, because I'm stealing his bitch.

Re: How long until 205 Live disappears?

I would like it gone. Not because I dislike the cruiserweights, but I hate how it's booked. The way they segregate the whole division and barely give them any exposure. The way they are only allowed to exist in their little bubble and not able to feud with other talent.

Cruiserweights got over back in the day from their ability to wrestle all kinds of talent, in different divisions, for different titles. Rey Mysterio was a popular cruiserweight Champion but people enjoyed his David and Goliath matches against The Big Show. Or how Gregory Helms wrestled US Champion Chris Benoit and World Champion Batista while having the longest reign in the title's history. They botched 205 Live from the start, they should have just brought back the original cruiserweight Title and continued booking the division like they did in the past. At the time they had Brian Kendrick and Tajiri as familiar faces but they still managed to mess up. The booking of the division is why Neville left the company because he felt he did everything he could on 205 Live and wanted to advance up the card but they wanted him to stay in the division and only wrestle the other cruiserweights.

Like anyone or anything in WWE right now, anywhere between soon to however long it takes to sink with the ship.

I don't see it being around for much longer. How would it survive if the stars are only featured on pre-shows?

Re: How long until 205 Live disappears?

I doubt it goes away at all really. They need content for the Network, b/c the Network is their future. It costs them very little extra to produce as they are already in and set-up in the city for SDL when its filmed, the only real extra cost is the talent they pay, and I don't see them getting rid of any talent at this point either. It just makes to much sense for them to run 205 Live.

If there is a significant change to it, I can see where they may just move it to Full Sail with NXT.

Re: How long until 205 Live disappears?

I hope soon. They repeated the WWECW mistake in trying to promote their own WWE-stylized indie that's attached to main roster shows, and when that didn't work, promoting a workrate show that's still attached to their main roster show. And really, the only reason the brand exists in the first place is to sign-and-stash small guys that Vince doesn't care about so other promotions can't use them, which they can do that with the various NXTs now

Yeah, it's not going away. They want to shell out as much content as possible for some reason. Bringing that division back was a bad idea in the first place.
