205 Live Announcement For 8/20 Episode On The WWE Network

205 Live (8/20): 5-On-5 Captain’s Challenge Announced For Next Week

Next week’s episode of 205 Live will be an interesting one.

WWE has announced that next week’s 205 Live show will feature a special 5-on-5 Captain’s Challenge, with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak and Oney Lorcan each selecting four wrestlers as their partners.

Gulak managed to retain his WWE Cruiserweight Championship on the WWE SummerSlam 2019 Kickoff Show pre-show, defeating Lorcan with a Cyclone Crash after a throat-strike.

On the follow-up episode of 205 Live this past Tuesday night, the two competed in a rematch that ended with Lorcan passing out in the GuLock.

After the match, WWE shot a post-match angle with the two having a pull-apart backstage segment that was released as a WWE digital exclusive, which continued the build-up in the Gulak-Lorcan story line, which will lead into next week’s 5-on-5 Captain’s Challenge at the WWE SmackDown LIVE and 205 Live tapings next Tuesday night, August 20th at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
