At Survivor Series Enzo Amore will defend his Cruiserweight Championship against Kalisto, although apparently, that wasn't the original plan.
WWE's cruiserweight division feels very up in the air right now. Between the departure of Neville and the introduction of Enzo Amore and Kalisto, it feels like WWE is booking on the fly and trying to plug holes. That's why the division's title was won by the aforementioned Kalisto and then quickly reclaimed by current—and two time—champion Enzo Amore.
The luchador has yet to get his rematch since losing the Cruiserweight Championship back to Muscles Marinara, but WWE remedied that by announcing he will get one at Survivor Series on Nov. 19, 2017. Something of an odd choice by the booking committee considering the rest of the card which is made up of champion versus champion matches and two Raw vs SmackDown Live elimination style tag team matches.
Well, it turns out a straightforward Cruiserweight Championship match wasn't the original plan for the 205 Live guys at Survivor Series. According to Wrestling Inc, there was going to be a third five on five match featuring ten of WWE's finest cruiserweights. Amore was going to captain a team made up of Noam Dar, Ariya Daivari, Tony Nese, and Drew Gulak while Kalisto would lead the team of Mustafa Ali, Cedric Alexander, Rich Swann, and interestingly Sin Cara.
It's all pretty predictable aside from the inclusion of Sin Cara in that group of ten. Kalisto's former tag team partner is currently involved in an angle with Baron Corbin on SmackDown Live so it's hard to see when and where he would have made his presence known on 205 Live. The far more obvious choice would have been Gran Metalik, although there are reports that WWE is planning to add some more new names to their purple brand in the not so distant future and maybe Sin Cara is one of those names.
While having too many gimmick matches on one card is rarely a wise choice, switching a five-on-five match for a title match that we've already seen seems like a strange decision. Ten cruiserweights in one bout would lead to exactly what WWE and most fans want from 205 Live, high flying moves and a spectacle that will keep fans glued to the action. Enzo versus Kalisto, on the other hand, will be an invitation for fans to take a break from what is an otherwise stacked card.
