205 Live has been one of the most entertaining weekly shows on the WWE Network that too few people are watching. They can’t really get an audience to stick around to watch the show for that matter.
The Cruiserweight show has been moved around a couple of times in regards to when it airs on the WWE Network and when it is recorded. They recently experienced another change and went back to being live on Tuesday nights after SmackDown Live.
PW Insider reports that this decision was made because Vince McMahon wanted there to be more live programming on the WWE Network. It makes sense seeing how if 205 Live isn’t live then they might need to consider switching up the name.
This was also a pretty wise move because 205 Live being live once again will also cut down on the spoilers which gives people one less reason to watch if they already know what happened.
