WWE 205 Live preview, June 19, 2018: High-stakes main event showdown
Tonight on WWE 205 Live, Mustafa Ali, Hideo Itami and Buddy Murphy will clash in a Triple Threat Match as each Superstar hopes to make their case for a Cruiserweight Championship opportunity.
Mustafa Ali, Buddy Murphy and Hideo Itami battle in huge Triple Threat Match
Two weeks ago on WWE 205 Live, Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy collided while looking to prove they deserve another opportunity to challenge Cedric Alexander for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Although both were defeated in their battles with Alexander, they pushed The Soul of WWE 205 Live to his limit, and even Murphy earned the champion’s respect.
The battle was a rubber match, as both Ali and Murphy have exchanged victories against one another, and once again they did not disappoint the WWE Universe, throwing caution to the wind and proving why they are two of the best Cruiserweights in the division.
Just as Ali had victory in sight, Hideo Itami attacked The Heart of WWE 205 Live and The Juggernaut of WWE 205 Live. Surveying the carnage he caused, not only did Itami put WWE 205 Live on notice to show him respect, he was laying his claim to have an opportunity to challenge for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
After defeating Murphy’s ally Tony Nese last week on WWE 205 Live, Ali addressed General Manager Drake Maverick and requested a Triple Threat Match between he, Murphy and Itami. Maverick immediately obliged.
Don’t miss the most exciting hour on television as Mustafa Ali, Buddy Murphy and Hideo Itami clash in a Triple Threat Match that could have major implications in the Cruiserweight Championship conversation, tonight at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network!
