WWE 205 Live | WWE – WWE Network air Wednesday
WWE 205 Live, or simply 205 Live, is a professional wrestling web television program produced by WWE, which features the promotion’s cruiserweight division, wherein all participants are billed at a maximum weight of 205 lbs. This show is also part of the Raw brand, to which WWE employees are assigned to work and perform.
The show premiered on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm eastern time, just prior to NXT, and is no longer “live”, with tapings occurring on Tuesday nights prior to SmackDown’s live broadcast
On September 14, 2016, Triple H announced that the winner of the final tournament in Cruiserweight Classic would not only receive a trophy, but will receive a WWE Cruiserweight Championship for the cruiserweight division on the Raw brand. Originally the title was defended exclusively on Monday Night Raw, but on November 29, 2016, 205 Live was launched for the cruiserweight division meaning that the title will defended on both Raw and 205 Live.
