We take a look back at what happened at the end of last week's 205 Live when Buddy Murphy attacked Cedric from behind.

Drake Maverick says that Buddy Murphy's actions last week were inexcusable.  He interrupted a ceremony for Cedric Alexander.  Buddy Murphy's recent matches have earned him a title match at the Greatest Royal Rumble.  However, during the mandatory weigh in, he came in at 207.7 pounds.  Buddy will have to make weight at a later date.

Cedric needs a challenger and there will be a gauntlet match to determine who faces Cedric Alexander in Saudi Arabia.

Mustafa Ali is asked about Buddy Murphy not making the weight.  Mustafa says that Buddy ruined a celebration for Cedric.  He knows that Cedric wants to get his hands on Buddy.  Ali says he now has the chance to face Cedric for the Cruiserweight Title and he will not miss that opportunity.

We go to commercial.

Drew Gulak says that he showed his ground based wrestling beats the high flying style of Mark Andrews.  This should be a warning to his former tag team partner Tony Nese.  He says Tony is fixated on Drew's rise to success while he languishes in mediocrity.  Drew says he is on to bigger and better things.  His next goal is to win the Cruiserweight Title Match.  He will win next week in the gauntlet match.  If you step up to him, you will tap out.
