WWE Chairman Not Happy With 205 LIVE

Image result for 205 LIVE

Vince McMahon has been very upset with the lack of fan interest for both 205 Live and the RAW Cruiserweight division, which is why WWE wants to add more Superstars with name value to the division (like they did with Neville and Tajiri).

Neville was not planned to be a part of the division, but those plans changed after 205 Live failed to gain a lot of interest from fans. Austin Aries is said to be the next addition to the Cruiserweight roster once he heals from his orbital injury. WWE has admired Neville’s work with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann on 205 Live.

Wrestler Rex King passes away

Rex King with referee Paul 
Former WWE and WCW wrestler Timothy Smith AKA Rex King passed on Monday due to complications from kidney failure. He was 55 years old.

Smith is known to WWE fans for his Well Dunn tag team with Steve Doll. Smith last worked for WWE in 1995. He was named as one of the wrestlers in the class-action lawsuit filed by lawyer Konstantine Kyros back in July of 2016, alleging that WWE concealed the risks of traumatic brain injuries. 
Our condolences go out to his friends and family.
