In an interesting turn, a new episode of 205 Live won’t be airing on the WWE Network tonight (Friday, October 4).
The news was first broken by Post Wrestling’s John Pollock, who reported that a call was made to air a repeat episode of 205 Live.
“I’ve been told by multiple people that a call was made to air a repeat of 205 Live tonight instead of taping a new show after Smackdown in Los Angeles. They had previously announced two matches for 205 Live and it was described to me as a ‘late call’.”
Also, Tony Nese vs. Humberto Carrillo and Akira Tozawa vs. Brian Kendrick had been announced for the episode this afternoon.
It should also be noted that WWE’s official website had posted a preview article for 205 Live that included the announcements of Nese vs. Carrillo and Tozawa vs. Kendrick. That article has since been deleted.
One step towards that possibility came to light when fans picked up on the fact that “NXT” is now in front of the name of the Cruiserweight Title.
