SPOILER ALERT: Final Competitor Revealed For Cruiserweight Title Match

January 9, 2019 0 By Tim Jarrell

It was announced that Buddy Murphy will defend the Cruiserweight Championship against three other competitors. Last week we learned two of the opponents and this week we learned of one more.

Last night before Smackdown Live WWE taped 205 Live and Hideo Itami defeated Cedrick Alexander to move on to the Royal Rumble. Now Murphy will defend the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Kalisto, Akira Tozawa, and Hideo Itami. This is a good thing because all four men are good wrestlers yet they are also opponents you may not have been expecting.
