In case Wednesday wasn’t busy enough already. Back in 2016, 205 Live debuted on the WWE Network to give the cruiserweight division its own show. While the show didn’t exactly light up the world to start, it has slowly settled down into its own niche and is now quite the entertaining hour of wrestling. However, things are about to change for one of the first times in the show’s history.
The boss speaks.
As announced on 205 Live’s Twitter, 205 Live will now be moving to Wednesday nights at 7pm instead of Tuesday at 10pm. The show has been aired live after SmackDown Live since its inception in the fall of 2016. It will now be part of a three hour block on the WWE Network, followed by NXT and then the Mae Young Classic. There is no word on when the show will be taped in relation to SmackDown Live.
Opinion: As packed as Wednesday is going to be from now on, I see very few negatives coming from this development. There’s just no reason to tape the show after SmackDown Live ends so get the fans out of the arena a little earlier. You can easily tape this before SmackDown Live goes on the air, especially with the Mixed Match Challenge starting up again on Tuesday. Just be sensible with the thing and it’ll work out fine.
