After taking part in the interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship tournament, Jake Atlas is set to make his 205 Live debut.
WWE has announced that Atlas will be in action on tonight’s episode of 205 Live. His opponent for the match wasn’t announced.
“After a heartbreaking defeat in the NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament that resulted in Atlas falling just one win short of competing for the then-vacant title, the young upstart is looking to rebound with what would be his first victory on the purple brand. Despite the recent loss, Atlas turned heads in the tourney, showing a unique blend of athleticism and toughness,” WWE.com wrote.
Atlas went 2-1 in group matches during the Cruiserweight title tournament, defeating Drake Maverick and Tony Nese but losing to Kushida. Maverick advanced from the group after winning a tiebreaker triple threat match but lost to Santos Escobar in the finals.
Oney Lorcan vs. Chase Parker will also air on 205 Live tonight. Lorcan & Danny Burch defeated Ever-Rise (Parker & Martel) on the May 22 episode of 205 Live. On last week’s show, Ever-Rise defeated Leon Ruff & Adrian Alanis.
