This week on 205 Live, Murphy defeated Mustafa Ali who Alexander beat to become Cruiserweight Champion at WrestleMania 34. Buddy Murphy has been a new edition to the Cruiserweight division as he was on a tag team in NXT before. He has been antagonizing Cedric Alexander since appearing on 205 Live. 

The May 29th taping of Smackdown and 205 Live will be in Raleigh, North Carolina which will be a hometown appearance by Alexander.
