WWE 205 Live preview, Jan. 22, 2019: High-stakes Triple Threat Battle

Before they challenge WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy in a Fatal 4-Way Match at WWE Royal Rumble this Sunday, Kalisto, Akira Tozawa and Hideo Itami battle in a Triple Threat Match on 205 Live tonight. Plus, Aiden English joins the WWE 205 Live commentary team.

Aiden English joins the WWE 205 Live commentary team

Beginning tonight on WWE 205 Live, SmackDown Superstar Aiden English joins Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness as a guest commentator through WrestleMania season. English will still compete on SmackDown LIVE, but he’s seizing the opportunity to show off his abilities at the announce table.

WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick explained his decision behind the addition of The Drama King.

“The McMahons have been shaking things up on Raw and SmackDown LIVE, so I’m going to follow suit,” Maverick said. “Aiden English is an active Superstar and is very opinionated, and I believe those opinions and perspective will add to the current commentary team, only adding to the entertainment value of The Most Exciting Hour of Television.”

Senior Director of On-Air Talent and Raw commentator Michael Cole also praised the move.

“We wanted to do something special for WrestleMania season, and Royal Rumble week kicks off the Road to WrestleMania,” said Cole. “We’ve been working with Aiden at the WWE Performance Center to see if he has the chops, and it turns out he’s pretty good.”

Who will pick up a huge win before WWE Royal Rumble?

Emerging victorious in their respective matches following a three-match tournament, Kalisto, Akira Tozawa and Hideo Itami earned the opportunity to challenge WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy in a Fatal 4-Way Match at WWE Royal Rumble.

With the high-stakes contest just a week away, the three challengers will square off in a Triple Threat Match tonight on WWE 205 Live. The battle is the perfect opportunity for Kalisto, Tozawa and Itami to make a statement before they compete for the championship. For former WWE Cruiserweight Champions Kalisto and Tozawa, tonight’s match could serve as a showcase for each of them to prove they belong back at the top of the Cruiserweight division. However, with renewed focus and encouragement from his ally Ariya Daivari, Hideo Itami has the perfect opportunity to use his hard-hitting style and weaken Kalisto and Tozawa before they enter the squared circle with Murphy.

Who will score a monumental victory heading into the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Fatal 4-Way Match at Royal Rumble? Find out tonight on WWE 205 Live tonight at 10/9 C, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.
