Emotions will definitely run high when four newcomers compete on 205 Live in a pair of NXT Breakout tournament qualifiers.
Just as it did during the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classics for men and women, 205 Live makes an exception to the typical weight limit of 205 pounds, and the prestigious NXT Breakout tournament takes center stage instead.
Guru Raaj, who almost scored an incredibly disrupted victory against Finn Bálor during an edge-out-your-seat clash in the Superstar Spectacle in January, will take on the arrogant Andre Chase. Chase recently claimed that he should be considered “No. 1 seed ”in the tournament.
And in a fight that seems likely to contain a clash of styles, ultra-athletic Desmond Troy is set to work alongside non-nonsense brawler Joe Gacy. Troy has been seen on NXT, Raw and SmackDown and collides with Gacy in a WWE ring for the first time, though the two competitors have matched at other stops.
The inaugural NXT Breakout Tournament in 2019 featured several competitors who continued to establish themselves as key players in NXT, including Bronson Reed, Cameron Grimes, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Dexter Lumis and more.
For Raaj, Chase, Troy and Gacy, the road to superstardom and a guaranteed championship opportunity goes through the purple brand!
Do not miss your chance for a first look at tomorrow’s superstars, as 205 live streams on Friday at. 10/9 C at Peacock in the US and WWE Network everywhere else!
