Tomorrow night's episode of WWE 205 Live will feature a preview for the upcoming NXT Breakout Tournament.
As part of this preview, Odyssey Jones will be in action. WWE is hyping Odyssey Jones as a 405-pound athlete as they say the brand looks to go against tradition to preview the upcoming tournament.
Hale to battle Briggs, Jones to tangle with Waller on 205 Live
On a must-see edition of 205 Live, the WWE Universe will be treated to something of a first look at the 2021 NXT Breakout Tournament, as the two largest Superstars in the field -- the 6'8" Josh Briggs and the 405-pounder Odyssey Jones -- have each requested matches. They'll get their wish when Briggs tangles with Asher Hale while Jones battles Grayson Waller, as the purple brand forgoes its typical 205-pound weight limit just four days before the tournament begins on Tuesday's edition of NXT.
Hale has experienced his fair share of ups and downs since arriving on 205 Live, claiming some wins early in his tenure but also suffering a recent singles defeat to Waller and struggling to find his groove in a tag team match during a losing effort alongside Ari Sterling.
Briggs, a noted brawler and the tallest competitor in 205 Live history, is making his first appearance on the purple brand and is hoping to earn a big win prior to competing in the NXT Breakout Tournament.
The colossal Jones, another new Superstar who will participate in the NXT Breakout Tournament, defies the 205 Live rulebook as he searches for a big win against the 3-0 Waller.
And since he wasn’t selected to compete in the tournament, Waller figures to have an even bigger chip on his shoulder than usual when he takes on the larger-than-life rookie.
