WWE 205 Live to include more larger wrestlers

Aug 13, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

The recent trend of larger wrestlers appearing on WWE 205 Live will officially continue.

WWE announced in the preview for tonight’s 205 Live episode that the show will now occasionally feature matches with one or more Superstars weighing in above the 205-pound weight limit.

WWE noted, “The purple brand will now occasionally play host to matches where one or multiple Superstars eclipse the 205-pound weight limit.”

Tonight’s show will feature Josh Briggs vs. Joe Gacy in the main event, where both competitors weigh more than 205 pounds. Gacy and Briggs are both billed at close to 250 pounds.

Tonight’s 205 Live will also feature Ikemen Jiro vs. Grayson Waller in a rematch from the July 30 show, which saw Jiro get the win.

Stay tuned for more.

    Thats f*****g stupid. Can’t we at least have some attempt at consistency in the weight brackets they themselves established?

    Just cancel the damn show already.

    205Live and Main event are pretty much pointless these days.

    RAW, Smackdown and NXT need more traditional pre-shows like Velocity and heat used to be. With matches and storylines between midcarders and squashes and promos for bigger stars who aren’t wrestling on that week’s main show.

    As it is right now Main Event and 205Live mostly show off how when all you have is ringwork, how damn boring most of the roster is.

    You’re expecting consistency and logic from a company that keeps inventing ways to get around its (also self-created) brand split? Good luck with that.
