Video package for and promo from #1 contender Buddy Murphy. He says people on 205 Live are used to having things handed to them, but from NXT through weight cuts, he’s earned everything he’s gotten. He know he wasn’t going to be given a title shot, so he attacked Cedric Alexander to get one. We’re reminded his match against Cedric for the Cruiserweight Championship is in two weeks in Alexander’s home state of North Carolina.
Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali are warming up in the locker room and they meet their partner for a six-man main event. Webster welcomes them to London, and says 205 Live is about to get some much needed Flash.

Dasha Fuentes asks the other trio in the main event how they plan to work together. Drake and Connor say they’ve tagged together in the past. Drew Gulak says he’s been putting them through rigorous team-building exercises. With two of the best mat technicians in the UK and himself, the greatest submission specialist in WWE, he has no doubt the batter their opponents. He wishes Dasha “cheerio” as they head to the ring.
