There aren’t a ton of people we know who are watching 205 Live every week. We watch it, but it’s our job. The truth is, sometimes after three hours of Raw on Monday night and another show the next night, sometimes it’s just easier to go to bed early and not tune into the WWE Network after SmackDown Live goes off the air. But in all honesty, 205 Live is a great show full of fantastic entertainers. It’s just sometimes ignored or pushed aside in the grand scheme of things.
Trevor Lee recently spoke to WrestlingInc where he unloaded on WWE’s television show exclusive to their Cruiserweight Division.
“You wanna know what 205 Live is?” Trevor Lee rhetorically asked. “It’s garbage! I’m 225-pounds and I’m the X-Division Champion. None of those guys could even hold a dime to what I can do. Get out of here, next question.”
Low Ki was also around and decided to throw in his two cents. He mentioned how he also saw a rather large X-Division influence in WWE’s 205 Live program.
“With all respect to the current X-division and the members of 205 Live, the X-division has carried heavy influence in what you see currently on television in all major companies. And there’s a reason for it. It wasn’t based off of size, it was based off of style. And in order to get noticed, styles is what makes matches. Many of the performers you see in 205 Live — I shouldn’t say many because there’s more there now than there were at the beginning – but there’s a handful of them who were former X-Division wrestlers. So the identity 205 is trying to create for them, has a heavy influence of X-Division written all over it so there’s no comparison. The X-Division is a unique identity.”
So what do you guys think? How does 205 Live stack up against the X-Division? Or is it just about the same thing?
