    Royal Rumble WWE Royal Rumble 2019 - Buddy Murphy vs Kalisto vs Akira Tozawa vs Hideo Itami - KICK

    Following his victory against Cedric Alexander at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, Murphy told WWE 205 Live General Manager he was ready for the next challenge. In the interest of providing the highest level of competition for the WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Maverick decided to kick off 2019 with a bang, announcing three Qualifying Matches to determine who would challenge Murphy in a Fatal 4-Way Match at WWE Royal Rumble on Sunday, Jan. 27.

    The first two contests came on the first WWE 205 Live of 2019, as former Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto bested Lio Rush and former Cruiserweight Champion Akira Tozawa emerged victorious against his longtime rival Drew Gulak.

    Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander – who lost the title to Murphy at WWE Super Show-Down last October – faced off against a laser-focused Hideo Itami. Following a hard-hitting and relentless battle, Itami pinned the former champion to earn the final spot in the Fatal 4-Way Match.

    With Hideo Itami entering a field of former champions in Tozawa and Kalisto, can he prove he is worthy of the respect he demands, or will Buddy Murphy emerge victorious in his most daunting task to date?

    Don’t miss WWE Royal Rumble on Sunday, Jan. 27, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

    Maybe the end of something great.
    Maybe the start of something new.
    Stay tuned.

    It's a shame Kalisto is in this over Lio but it is what it is. Should be a good match.

    I like that they're going a little different this time rather than just have a version of the great Buddy singles matches on 205 Live condensed into a 10 minute sprint. I think maybe 3 of these guys were involved in a great 4 way last year.

    I really hope this isn't on the pre-show but I can't see what else their gonna put on there if not this. This deserves to be treated like it means something. They've spent time building it, every man in it is a talent, and this could be a showcase for 205 in front of a crowd that might actually give a shit.

    I say Buddy Murphy walks out still the WWE Cruiserweight Champion some how some way by hook or crook but as for who eats the pin I think it will be Tozawa

    Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2019 - Buddy Murphy vs Kalisto vs Akira Tozawa vs Hideo Itami -

    This should be a really great match. Definitley on the pre-show, but at least that way they can give it 15-20 minutes instead of 10 on the main show.

    I think Buddy will retain but I wouldn't rule out Hideo Itami stealing a win here. I think it's possible that we'll see Cedric and Buddy join Mustafa Ali on the main roster and 205 Live getting a fresh start of sorts, as they've been pushing guys like Daivari and Itami and brought up Humberto Carillo (who could be the first of many new faces on the scene).
