We head backstage where 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick is ready to deliver a state of the brand address. He says that The 100th episode is an example of what the brand was always meant to be. He hypes Ali and Itami’s different paths to the brand and says that next week will deliver a similarly great show. Maverick then says that Buddy Murphy needs a challenger and the main event on Oct. 30th will determine a new #1 contender.
