TJP has no problem with his spot on 205 Live.
Much has been made 205 Live being a "demotion" of sorts for wrestlers. The cruiserweights started as a part of Raw, but were quickly regulated to their own show. 205 Live used to air live on the WWE Network following SmackDown, but was then moved to Wednesday's and taped before SmackDown.
Despite 205 Live being seen as a "lesser" brand by many, TJP doesn't feel the same way.
As far as I think, anywhere I get to wrestle is a good place to be. (laughs) For me anyway," TJP told Fox Sports Asia. "I think that’s the kind of attitude a lot of guys should have, not just to be positive about your scenario but be confident in yourself. Whatever show you are on, you should feel like that’s the best show you could be on. A lot of people will ask me, and I don’t know if this is a question you have ready to ask me (laughs) but I get asked often, what was your favourite match. Ok, to answer that question and this kind of helps to answer the question that we were talking about, my favourite match is the next one. That’s what I always say. Because that’s the way I think people should look at it. Where would you like to be? The show that I am on. What’s your favourite match? The next one I am going to have. It doesn’t matter who it’s with, because I look forward to it, whoever it with, whenever it’s with, wherever it’s with."
TJP continued, "You know what I mean? And I think people should have that level of confidence as a performer, you know, rather than viewing it as moving up or moving to the new thing, they should be confident that people want to come to see them where they are. That being said, moving up or moving into or onto whatever the case is different shows or something like that, I think it would be fun."
Mustafa Ali is one name who went from being a featured player on 205 Live to now making his home on SmackDown Live. Ali became an official part of the SmackDown roster last week and cemented his status by defeating WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in tag team action.
