It had previously been reported by Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet that NXT Star Lio Rush would be getting called up for the Cruiserweight Tournament, however WWE announced Buddy Murphy to fill that spot instead.
Hearing from a source who has been reliable in the past that there’s been talk of putting Lio Rush in the 205 Live cruiserweight tournament.

Looks like they went with Murphy instead. Had heard it would be Lio vs Daivari next week, but was still up in the air this morning. https://t.co/124iqKH0vq
