Who will advance to WrestleMania?
Tonight on WWE 205 Live, Tony Nese and Cedric Alexander will collide in the finals of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.
Who will challenge Buddy Murphy?
Tony Nese and Cedric Alexander will collide tonight in the finals of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament, and the winner will go on to challenge Buddy Murphy for the title at WrestleMania. With the chance to compete at The Showcase of the Immortals on the line, the contest is also a culmination of a rivalry that began after Alexander first lost the WWE Cruiserweight Title to Murphy.
The Soul of WWE 205 Live immediately jumped back into competition following his title loss, but he was unable to defeat Nese on multiple occasions, leaving him to return to the WWE Performance Center to hone his abilities. Now, The Premier Athlete is all that stands in Alexander’s way of returning to WrestleMania with a chance to reclaim the title.
However, the laser-focused Nese is determined to prove the naysayers wrong and show that he’s worthy of a chance to capture the Cruiserweight division’s top prize. The Premier Athlete is also the champion’s training partner, and he has the opportunity to prove that he is the same caliber competitor as Murphy.
Who will advance to WrestleMania? Find out tonight on WWE 205 Live at 10/9 C, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network!
