That would be the logical thing to do. But you know what they're like with hometown heroes these days, they'll make him look a right mug and job sensationally.

They’ve got Peyton Royce and Billie Kay for that now. 

Have they ever done the hometown hero loses gimmick in 2 matches?

205 Live is moving to 7pm on Wednesdays.  I am assuming this is just while the MMC is on.  If it’s not being shown live then maybe they’ll record it pre Smackdown making the crowd response better.

They recorded it before Smackdown as expected.  But apparently they sent an email to ticket holders advising them the show would be starting at 6.30 instead of 6.45 (which only half the ticket holders probably read anyway), but it then started at 6.20, so there was still lots of empty seats.  But apparently the crowd that was there was way more into it than normal.  Once they start doing it at venues where tickets hadn't already been on sale and people know when the show starts, it should pick up.

Alexander vs Gulak in the main event was a cracking little ditty for the Cruiserweight title this week, highly recommended. Alexander vs Murphy in Australia should be interesting too. 

Nevermind a better 205 Live - the time has come for Drew Gulak to start campaigning for a better Monday Night Raw. 205 has enough heels they can call upon now and Raw desperately needs more entertaining midcard acts. Drew's a top technician and a top talker, and also shows real personality in his matches too with his expressions and when he turns on the aggression. Good story throughout the match where he became so desperate to put Cedric away he even abandoned one of his rules for a better 205 by launching an attack from the top rope. A small detail but crucial nonetheless. 

I definitely noticed a difference in terms of the crowd - whilst they weren't exactly doing cartwheels they were much more animated than usual and it definitely adds to the viewing experience from the outside looking in. This move to recording pre-Smackers and showing it on Wednesdays should benefit everyone involved.

Survivors 97. The whole of Canada counts as the Harts' hometown!

That 450 by Ali on the apron, holy shit. Talk about no room for error. Liking this feud between him and Itami though it's good stuff.

What's the crowd reaction like for this episode? I only tend to watch 205 if the audience is engaged.

Lovely little face turn for Brian Kendrick on this show. His facial expressions as the realisation dawned on him were great.

Surprisingly little build for Murphy vs Alexander though, considering their match is this Saturday.

At least they’re actually going to do something with him now - this change could be just what he needs. Also, Maria looked exceptional. 

Rush and Dorado were actually having a tidy little match before that, and Alexander/Nese was a decent watch as well. I like how they portrayed Cedric following his loss to Murphy, and Nese desperately needed a big win to get back on track. Cracking little show this week.

Yeah good match that was.

I quite like the inclusion of Kanellis in 205, he wrestles differently to any of the other guys, a more plodding, grounded style that is good when you have a shit load of high flying on the show. Also Maria. Loads of mileage in her distracting people and Mike sneaking the win.
