Today WWE had a press release stating that the 205 Live roster will be hitting the road in January 2018. Just over a year after the series debuted, WWE has announced the first three 205 Live exclusive house shows will be taking place in January. All three venues locations are homes to previous NXT house shows. Below is the schedule for the shows:
January 19th -- Ryan Center in Kingston, Rhode Island
January 20th -- Lowell Memorial Auditorium in Lowell, Massachusetts
January 21st -- Mid Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York
Zack Reacts: This really blows my mind. I'm not a huge fan of 205 Live, but personal opinions aside, I can't say that the Cruiserweight Division is doing well enough to travel on it's own. I really think this could end up being the final nail in the coffin for the division if it does poorly, which it probably will. If 205 Live goes touring on it's own and only sells 10-20% capacity for an arena it's only going to further prove to Vince that it's a waste of money. These guys can do well, but need the right environment. I still think moving them to the NXT show would be their best option.
