Previously on the Best and Worst of WWE 205 Live: WWE held the first-ever Cruiserweight Classic, a 32-sub-205-pound-man tournament that showcased unique talent from around the world, integrated itself into popular independent promotions via qualifying matches and individualized its presentation in the hopes of finally, finally teaching WWE audiences what great junior heavyweight wrestling is. It was a huge success, so they put all the guys from the tournament you liked but didn’t love on Raw and had them wrestle like littler heavyweights in front of audiences that did not give a shiiit.
But hey, we’ve made it to the first episode of 205 LIVE, WWE’s long-rumored cruiserweight show. They’re taping it after Smackdown — there was a whole thing at Survivor Series, don’t ask — and (apparently) trying to bridge the gap between a main roster production and the spirit of pro graps competition that made the Classic so good. So let’s give it a shot!
And now, the Best and Worst of 205 Live episode 1 — think we’ll get to 205? — for November 29, 2016.
