What's the point in it only being 45 minutes? Wouldn't you make it a nice round hour? Surely they won't have ad breaks to kill even more into such little time.

I hope it suceeds and builds a cult following. It's got much more chance to get over and elevate people with them all on their own specific show.

Don't be surprised to see old names from the division come back. Already read reports that Shane Helms wouldn't be against it.

Quote Vince McMahon has been very upset with the lack of fan interest for both 205 Live and the RAW Cruiserweight division, which is why WWE wants to add more Superstars with name value to the division (like they did with Neville and Tajiri).

Neville was not planned to be a part of the division, but those plans changed after 205 Live failed to gain a lot of interest from fans. Austin Aries is said to be the next addition to the Cruiserweight roster once he heals from his orbital injury.

WWE has admired Neville’s work with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann on 205 Live


The lack of interest is because it's shit, the tournament was decent but the top stars from the tourney mostly chose to not sign with WWE full-time and the version of Cruiserweight wrestling that we see on Raw and 205 is a watered down version of the action displayed in the Cruiserweight Classic.

Adding Neville was smart as he's the best thing in the division by a mile but he can't do it all alone. Jack Gallagher is ok but is mostly being booked for laughs, Kendrick is ok as a veteran talent. Austin Aries will be a great addition, Aries and Neville plus Tajiri is a good start, I guess if in time you add in guys like Roderick Strong and Hideo Itami then it could become something worth watching. As things stand unless Neville is involved I skip through the Cruiserweights on Raw.

Neville/Gallagher continues to be entertaining and the tag team main event was given ample time so came off as a quite entertaining contest. This week the 50 minute show was worthy of a watch.

It's a shame the roster is so light on names because it already appears everyone has wrestled everyone else too much already.

The crowds are always pretty dead unfortunately as a lot have to get home after Smackdown as it's already late on a work/school/college/uni night.

I haven't even given this show a chance yet.

Is it WWE big-man style-lite? Or is it more like the CWC? If it's like the CWC it'd be worth watching, and should have already created a buzz. The fact that no one is talking about it suggests that it's watered down main roster style crap wrestling.

First episode I have watched in ages because it was in the UK and had the UK roster around and glad I did because it was a good 55 minute episode.

I wouldn't have had Cedric Alexander in with three UK roster guys, but the match was entertaining enough.

Mark Andrews looks a star in the making for Wales.
