This week’s episode of 205 Live was canceled at the last minute, which led to unhappy talent and fans as a result. 

This would be the second time in as many months that WWE has decided not to do the show at the last minute. Thus, this has caused some fans to question the future of the brand.

Especially since the Cruiserweight Title has been rebranded as the NXT Cruiserweight Title where it’s also defended on Wednesday night.

A possible reason as to why 205 Live was canceled this week has surfaced online thanks to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet. He took to his official Twitter account where he noted that the show was canceled because of the NXT invasion that happened on Friday Night SmackDown. 

WWE did reenact the famous DX invasion angle from the Monday Night Wars on this show. 

He also noted that sources implied that the show is not in jeopardy of getting canceled permanently. Here is what Satin Tweeted:

“In case it’s not evident at this point, sources implied to me earlier today that 205 Live was cancelled tonight due to the big end of show angle with DX leading an NXT invasion on SmackDown — not the show being in jeopardy of getting cancelled permanently.”
