For months, Tony Nese was looked at the pinnacle of this division. Everyone else was fine with that. How sad? Tony Nese may be a premiere athlete, but he lacked the killer instincts to truly lead. Even after Gulak won the title, Nese dare to doubt his legitimacy. After Extreme Rules, Gulak eliminated all doubt. He rebuilt himself. Now his grip on the cruiserweight title gets tighter as the days go by. Who will dare to step up next? Understand the pain and punishment that comes with that decision. Drew Gulak is your WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Welcome to his 205 Live.

Drake Maverick & Mike Kanellis In-Ring Segment
Did you think that was what Kanellis was going to get fined over? Kanellis wants Drake Maverick to come out and fine him himself. Maverick wanted to have this conversation in his office, but go ahead everything off your chest. Kanellis is tired of going into his office. He wants to say it to the WWE Universe. His contract expired two months ago and he could have gone anywhere. He decided to stay for two reasons. He wanted to prove to his wife that he’s as good as he says he is by becoming the WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Secondly, he wanted to kick Drake Maverick’s ass.
Maverick is sorry that Kanellis feels that way. Maverick tells Kanellis to look in the mirror for once and take accountability. Kanellis is the only reason why he’s not where he wants to be in the Cruiserweight Division. Does Kanellis think he’s more deserving more than anyone else who built this brand and not use it for their own agendas. What happen on Raw last night? How about Drake’s performance with his wife last night? Maverick is never going to fight Kanellis because he’s not a competitor. He’s the general manager of 205 Live. Maverick has been neglecting his duties chasing the 24/7 Title.
He’s embarrassing the brand walking down the streets of Worcester in his underwear. Kanellis is not the joke around here, Maverick is. Maverick never thought Kanellis was a joke, that’s why he brought him to 205 Live. Kanellis doesn’t want to be patronized. Maverick is trying to be the bigger man, but that’s not the case. He’s not even half of a man. Kanellis tells him to go home, talk to his wife, beg for forgiveness, and act like a man. A real man wouldn’t back down from a fight. A real man wouldn’t let them say to them that their wife is filthy. Maverick with rapid fire haymakers. Maverick ducks a clothesline from Kanellis. Maverick dropkicks Kanellis to the floor.
