WWE NXT Superstars Tyler Breeze and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott have been announced for tonight’s WWE 205 Live episode.
There’s no word yet on who Breeze will be facing, but Scott will do battle with Lio Rush.
This will be the official debut on the cruiserweight brand for Breeze. He appeared for a segment back in September 2017, but did not wrestle. Scott made his 205 Live debut back in July 2019 with a loss to Drew Gulak, then he was the winner of a 10-man Elimination Match in August. Scott returned to 205 Live on October 25 and November 1 for two wins over Ariya Daivari.
Jack Gallagher will also be featured on tonight’s show. As noted earlier at this link, 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick tweeted earlier today on how he lifted the “internal suspension” of Jack Gallagher after Gallagher’s ringside tantrum in late November.
Below is WWE’s full announcement on tonight’s 205 Live episode from the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana:
Rush and “Swerve” set for fast-paced showdown
Tonight on WWE 205 Live, former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush faces a high-speed challenge in the form of Isaiah “Swerve” Scott. Both Superstars are well-known for their superhuman speed and agility which will no doubt make for a fast-paced matchup that will light up the WWE Universe.
In addition to facing off for the time ever, Rush and Scott will each be competing in their first match of the new year, and they are both looking to pick up a crucial first win in 2020. The Man of the Hour is likely still thinking about the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, which now rests around the waist of Angel Garza, but the same can be said for Scott, who hopes to make WWE 205 Live “Swerve’s House.”
Purple Prince Pretty
Raul Mendoza, Angel Garza and several other Superstars made their Cruiserweight division debuts in 2019 and subsequently competed regularly as members of the WWE 205 Live roster. Tonight, another new face comes to the Cruiserweight division, and it’s the prettiest one yet. Veteran of SmackDown, Raw and WWE NXT, Tyler Breeze is set to make his WWE 205 Live debut.
Don’t miss the most exciting hour of television as Breeze joins the purple brand, and Drake Maverick has now lifted Gentleman Jack Gallagher’s suspension. Tune in at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
