205 Live Reportedly Scrapped, Replaced By NXT: Level Up

205 LIve NXT

A new report has claimed that 205 Live has been scrapped and is set to be replaced by a new show titled NXT: Level Up.

According to a new report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, 205 Live has been cancelled.

The show launched back late 2016 following the success of the Cruiserweight Classic Tournament. On the debut episode, Rich Swann defeated Brian Kendrick to claim the Cruiserweight Championship.

The show became the home of WWE’s Cruiserweight division before eventually becoming an extension of WWE’s NXT brand.

In recent months the show has undergone numerous changes with its roster undergoing significant cuts, as WWE released a number of Superstars across of all of it’s brands. This led to the Cruiserweight limit being lifted.

The report notes that although there has been no official announcement, the show will be replaced by NXT: Level Up. The first episode of the show is set to be taped ahead of NXT: Vengeance Day on February 15th.

NXT: Vengeance Day will see three of the brand’s championships on the line, while the winner of the men’s Dusty Rhodes Classic will also be crowned.

Elsewhere, the long-running feud between Pete Dunne and Tony D’Angelo will also come to a head in a Weaponised Steel Cage Match.

You can find the full card for the show below.

  • Bron Breakker (c) vs. Santos Escobar (NXT Championship)
  • Tomasso Ciampa vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • Pete Dunne vs. Tony D’Angelo (Weaponised Steel Cage Match)
  • Toxic Attraction vs. Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta (NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship)
  • Carmelo Hayes (c) vs. Cameron Grimes (NXT North American Championship)
  • MSK vs. The Creed Brothers (Final Men’s Dusty Rhodes Classic)
