Drake Maverick has promised that he will make a big announcement on 205 Live this evening.
In a video posted on his Twitter account, the 205 Live General Manager said he had heard the concerns of WWE fans and his cruiserweight roster about how much time he has spent chasing the 24/7 Title on Raw and SmackDown recently.
Maverick promised that on tonight’s show there would finally be a new challenger to Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese decided.
In an effort to make up for any perceived wrongdoings, Maverick also promised to reveal a “big surprise” on 205 Live tonight.

What that surprise might be is anyone’s guess. WWE has a patchy record when it comes to delivering on promised surprises so its probably not worth getting your hopes too high.
Chances are it will be a new wrestler from NXT or NXT UK called up to the brand, which is desperately in need of new talent having seen the likes of Buddy Murphy, Ali, Hideo Itami, TJP and Cedric Alexander depart of late.
Or it could simply be Maverick announcing that Nese’s challenger will get his shot at the next main roster PPV event Stomping Grounds in under two weeks time.
Tune in tonight live on the WWE Network following SmackDown to find out.
