The Cruiserweight title will be on the line at the Royal Rumble in a fatal 4-way match as Buddy Murphy’s challenge to keep the title just got a little bit more harder.
The three opponents that will face Murphy will be decided via three qualifying matches that will take place on 205 Live over the next two weeks. The qualifying matches are Kalisto vs Lio Rush, Akira Tozawa vs Drew Gulak, and Cedric Alexander vs Hideo Itami. The first two matches will air next week while the other one will air the week after. The winners of those three matches will join Murphy at the Royal Rumble.
The Australian Murphy has been holding on to the Cruiserweight title since October when he won the title at the Super Show-Down pay-per-view in his home country.
