WWE 205 Live preview: July 16, 2019: Jack Gallagher to battle SmackDown LIVE’s Chad Gable tonight
Tonight, Gentleman Jack Gallagher will compete against formidable SmackDown LIVE Superstar Chad Gable in what is sure to be a technically superior main event. Don’t miss WWE 205 Live at 10/9 C on WWE Network.
Jack Gallagher to battle SmackDown LIVE’s Chad Gable
Despite a garbage dumping distraction by Mike Kanellis at ringside last week, Gentleman Jack Gallagher managed to overcome Devin Justin.
This week, The British Superstar will square off against SmackDown LIVE’s Chad Gable in what is sure to be a technically superior main event. Hopefully, the action will be garbage free.
Don’t miss WWE 205 Live, tonight at 10/9 C on WWE Network.
Drew Gulak remains in control
Since returning to action in June after a brief hiatus, Drew Gulak has displayed a more aggressive attitude and in-ring repertoire. At WWE Stomping Grounds, Gulak defeated Akira Tozawa and then-champion Tony Nese to at long last lay claim to the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. This past Sunday at WWE Extreme Rules, Gulak proved that his victory at WWE Stomping Grounds was no fluke and defeated his former friend The Premier Athlete to retain the championship in his hometown of Philadelphia.
Long gone are the campaign slogans and PowerPoint presentations, as Gulak is focused on letting his abilities inside the squared circle do the talking. With The Biggest Event of the Summer on the horizon, will a new challenger make a strong case to be the one to face the champion?
Mike Kanellis is in action tonight and is looking to make a statement
Last week on WWE 205 Live, Mike Kanellis interrupted Gentleman Jack Gallagher’s match to air his grievances – or trash as it were – regarding his dissatisfaction with WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick. Kanellis has long felt that Maverick has not given him opportunities and has recently been too focused on the WWE 24/7 Championship. Maverick tried to reason with Kanellis following the outburst, but his words fell on deaf ears.
Kanellis feels Maverick has ruined his life and that interrupting WWE 205 Live is the proper way to reciprocate. Despite Kanellis’ rage, Maverick fined The Opportunist for his actions. Kanellis remained defiant and promised to defeat his opponent tonight – no matter who it is — to see how big a fine Maverick would issue then.
Who will face the wrath of Mike Kanellis? Don’t miss WWE 205 Live, streaming live tonight at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
