The September 24th, 2019 edition of 205 Live takes place at the Chase Center in San Francisco, CA.
Recap of last week's NXT live, when Oney Lorcan battled a returning Lio Rush to determine a new number one contender for Drew Gulak's cruiserweight championship. After a hard fought battle, Rush would pick up the victory with a frog splash. Cut to Drew Gulak. He calls Rush another ghost from his past. "It doesn't matter how impressive you are," says Gulak. "Lio...there is nothing you can do that I am not prepared for." Gulak then berates Lorcan for bringing Danny Burch as his tag partner for tonight's main event tag match. The Singh Brothers interrupt the feed and inform us that Humberto Carrillo will be battling his cousin, Angel Garza, in 205 Live's opening match. The Singh's hype their own in-ring return, but will continue to watch tape so they can become the greatest tag team in the division's history.

Commentary takes us back to last week's 205, when Brian Kendrick attacks his friend Akira Tozawa with a kendo stick after already assaulting Jack Gallagher. Cut to an interview with Kendrick. He says that there's an epidemic consuming the 205 locker room...and it's an epidemic of disrespect. He says that the locker room forgets that he's knocked down barriers for them to even be in the WWE, and that he hasn't received a title shot in nearly three years despite being a former champion and veteran. "It's time for everyone to remember what respect looks like."
