During a recent media conference, Trevor Lee, Sonjay Dutt and Low Ki were asked to compare WWE 205 Live to GFW’s X Division. All three provided their own takes on comparisons but Lee’s remarks stood out the most when he decided to call 205 Live “garbage.”
“You wanna know what 205 Live is,” Trevor Lee asked. “It’s garbage! I’m 225-pounds and I’m the X-Division Champion. None of those guys could even hold a dime to what I can do. Get out of here, next question.”
Sonjay Dutt response to the question wasn’t as harsh as Lee’s. “When I picture that caliber of wrestling, I picture something that’s so drastically and dramatically different from everything else that’s presented on the show,” Dutt said.
“I think here in the X-Division that’s what we’re trying to do, show you a completely different style of wrestling.”
Low Ki explained the X-Division has the influence that it does because it’s a certain style of wrestling.
“With all respect to the current X-division and the members of 205 Live, the X-division has carried heavy influence in what you see currently on television in all major companies,” said Low-Ki. “And there’s a reason for it.”
“It wasn’t based off of size, it was based off of style. And in order to get noticed, styles is what makes matches. Many of the performers you see in 205 Live — I shouldn’t say many because there’s more there now than there were at the beginning – but there’s a handful of them who were former X-Division wrestlers.”
“So the identity 205 is trying to create for them, has a heavy influence of X-Division written all over it so there’s no comparison. The X-Division is a unique identity.”
