WWE has announced that Lio Rush will face off against Noam Dar while Mustafa Ali vs. Hideo Itami will take place on next week’s episode of 205 Live on the WWE Network at 7 pm Eastern on Wednesday nights, which is an hour before WWE NXT.
WWE sent out the following on the Rush – Dar match:
Although originally scheduled to face Noam Dar tonight on WWE 205 Live, Lio Rush once again found himself at odds with WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick. In no mood for Rush’s antics, Maverick expressed discontent after The Man of the Hour said he couldn’t face The Scottish Supernova due to his commitments on Raw with Bobby Lashley. Although Rush tried to argue that Maverick also has new commitments on the red brand with AOP, it was abundantly clear that the WWE 205 Live GM was managing his duties responsibly. Annoyed with the 23-year-old Piece of Gold, Maverick let Rush know that as long as he fulfills his commitments on WWE 205 Live, he can do whatever he wants on Raw. As a result, Rush will face Dar next week, no matter what.
