As the Legado del Fantasma continues to grow, Santa's Escobar, the NXT Cruiserweight Champion will be featured on tonight's episode of WWE 205 Live.
WWE has announced two matches for tonight including the NXT Cruiserweight Champion taking on Oney lorcan in singles competition and tehuti miles will face Saudi Arabian Superstar, Mansoor .
205 Live to feature a pair of exciting singles matchups
205 Live is set for a pair of thrilling singles bouts tonight, as NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar of Legado del Fantasma will tangle with Oney Lorcan, while Mansoor is slated to battle Tehuti Miles.
Backed by Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza, Escobar has carried himself with an unmatched swagger ever since claiming the NXT Cruiserweight Title in a thrilling eight-Superstar tournament and removing his mask to reveal his true identity to the world. He has been virtually untouchable since earning the championship, but he is sure to be in for a fight tonight, as Lorcan is never shy about letting the fists fly once the bell rings. Lorcan, however, is still recovering from a grueling NXT singles bout against Timothy Thatcher, who defeated The Boston Brawler and seemingly attempted to break his arm in the aftermath. How will that affect tonight’s matchup?
Mansoor vs. Miles
Mansoor, who has defeated Cesaro and Dolph Ziggler in singles matches and claimed a victory in a 51-Man Battle Royal, is making his return to the purple brand for a head-on collision with Miles. Mansoor has not competed since February, and his skills will be put to an immediate test against Miles, who has a victory over Danny Burch to his credit. Miles has become a mainstay on the purple brand and will undoubtedly look to make a statement at Mansoor’s expense.
Don’t miss what is sure to be a night of incredible action on 205 Live, streaming on the award-winning WWE Network tonight at 10/9 C!
Fightful will have live coverage of the action beginning at 10 p.m. Eastern.
