Legado del Fantasma In-Ring Return, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott Set For 205 Live Tonight


A big pair of matches have been announced for tonight's edition of WWE 205 Live.

On Friday evening, the WWE website and company's official social media channels announced the two matches that will air on tonight's episode of the weekly Cruiserweight-themed program that airs on the WWE Network immediately following the conclusion of the weekly Friday Night SmackDown blue-brand main roster show on FOX.

In their first match since aligning themselves with NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar, Legado del Fantasma -- Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde -- will be tag-team action against Ruff and Gray on tonight's show.

Also in action will be Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, as he goes one-on-one against one-half of Ever-Rise -- Matt Martel.

WWE.com released the following preview for tonight's show:

See Legado del Fantasma, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott in action on 205 Live

Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde will be in action for the first time since joining Legado del Fantasma tonight on 205 Live, while Isaiah “Swerve” Scott will look to pick up yet another “W.”

Santos Escobar has quickly asserted his dominance since becoming NXT Cruiserweight Champion and revealing his new identity. Now it’s time to see what the rest of Legado del Fantasma is capable of, as Escobar’s understudies, Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde, square off with Leon Ruff and Liam Gray.

Mendoza and Wilde will be in action for the first time in three months and are preapring for this Wednesday's Six-Man Tag Team Match, which pits Legado del Fantasma against Drake Maverick and Breezango at The Great American Bash on NXT. Mendoza and Wilde have also shown new demeanors since joining up with Escobar and have been instrumental in savage attacks of Maverick. Will we see a similar change in the ring?

Meanwhile, up-and-comers Ruff and Gray are looking to make a name for themselves — and what better way to do it than at Legado del Fantasma’s expense?

Elsewhere, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott will look to continue his hot streak when he takes on one-half of Ever-Rise, Matt Martel.

After turning heads in the NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament, “Swerve” hasn’t slowed down one bit on the purple brand and prevailed in a classic over Tony Nese last week.

Martel and tag team partner Chase Parker are still trying to find their footing as a team. A singles victory over the red-hot “Swerve,” who is looking to move on to new opponents after taking down The Premiere Athlete, would no doubt help them find momentum.

Catch it all tonight at 10/9 C, streaming on the award-winning WWE Network!
