Lio Rush must wrestle Akira Tozawa next week on 205 Live.
Three weeks ago, Lio Rush defeated Akira Tozawa which was Rush's first match on 205 Live against a main roster member. Tozawa wanted a rematch which Rush was resistant to by claiming he wanted new challenges.
On Tuesday, 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick created a new match between the two wrestlers which will take place on the show next week. The match was announced on Twitter and a WWE.com exclusive video.

In the WWE.com exclusive video which can be seen at the top of this page, Maverick told Rush that he has behaved unprofessionally and Tozawa deserves his respect by being a former WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Rush said he doesn't think Tozawa is on his level.
Rush is currently undefeated on 205 Live.
