As seen on the debut episode of WWE 205 Live, Rich Swann defeated Brian Kendrick to become the WWE Cruiserweight Champion in an excellent main event that won the crowd over. As I noted on Monday night, WWE wanted to do something noteworthy to get the show off on the right start. The announcers noted that the show is a product of Triple H so hopefully, that means that they will give these guys time before they get over with the crowd.

WWE seems to be making a real effort to get the cruiserweights over with the masses. They did video packages on the Bollywood Boyz, Lince Dorado, Noam Dar, Gran Metalik and Rich Swann to help the fans get to know them.

Swann was interviewed after the match as fans chanted "you deserve it." Swann thanked his mom, who passed away when he was a teenager.
