One WWE NXT star has made the move to 205 Live, which is the cruiserweight show of the sports entertainment company. Oney Lorcan is now part of the roster.
As seen on this week’s episode of 205 Live in Uncasville, CT at the Mohegan Sun Arena on the WWE Network, Lorcan made an appearance by getting involved in the final segment of the episode when he came out before the bell rang for Cedric Alexander vs. Ariya Daivari. He would sit at ringside for the match.
Once Alexander connected with a dive to the floor, he accidentally knocked Lorcan’s jacket off of the announce table. This led to Lorcan getting up and started yelling at Alexander as a result. This allowed Daivari to roll up Alexander for the pinfall.
Post-match, Lorcan and Alexander brawled that ended with Lorcan giving Alexander a cheap shot while officials tried to break up the brawl. Also, 205 Live Drake Maverick announced in a video that was posted by WWE that Lorcan has joined the cruiserweight division. Moving forward, Lorcan will be competing on NXT and 205 Live.
Lorcan and Alexander have some history as Alexander beat him to advance to the finals of the number one contender’s tournament that was won by Tony Nese in order to earn the right to challenge Buddy Murphy for the Cruiserweight Title at WrestleMania 35.
