Sometimes, there is WWE Network news that either doesn’t warrant a post of its own, or there simply isn’t time to get to it due to more pressing matters at the time. This can be a release date of a show, something removed from the service, or something else minor. The WWE Network News and Tidbits posts are here to catch multiple little bits of news and inform the readers. If you have any recent news or information we didn’t cover below, feel free to let us know in the comments section!

In a unique note, there is no new original content coming to WWE Network on Sunday. Typically, WWE Network and Peacock have a new original program on Sundays, but this week the schedule is barren with the exception of a month old Smackdown episode. A new piece of original programming was added on Wednesday, however, with the first part of a five part WWE 50 Greatest Tag Teams miniseries.

Another episode of 205 Live is airing tonight on WWE Network. And this time, the brand will see two singles matches, one featuring one of the newest members of the brand.

Below is the preview for this episode:

On an action-packed WWE 205 Live, Ari Sterling will go head-to-head with Sunil Singh while 205 Live OG Ariya Daivari looks to take the fight to August Grey without the benefit of Tony Nese and Ikemen Jiro in his corner.

Ari Sterling takes on Sunil Singh
In his debut match, Ari Sterling defeated Samir Singh. Now Sunil Singh has a chance to take down the up-and-comer. In a highly competitive match, will The Bollywood Boyz be able to use the numbers game to one-up “The Sauce”?

August Grey battles OG Ariya Daivari
Since August Grey debuted on WWE 205 Live, he had been met with anger and envy from Ariya Daivari, a Superstar who has run the Cruiserweight Division since Day One. As a result, Daivari had attempted to make Grey’s life difficult in every way possible, with Tony Nese by his side and Ikemen Jiro getting Grey’s back as of late. Now, with Nese and Jiro are barred from ringside this go-around, what will happen when the OG Daivari battles The Life of the Party? With both men boasting two singles wins apiece against one another, who will break the tie in what should be one of the most competitive, talent-laden matches in recent 205 Live history.

Don’t miss all the explosive action of WWE 205 Live, Friday night at 10 ET/7 PT on Peacock.
