UPDATE: Tony Nese has also chimed in on the cancelation, and brought up his newborn son as the “reason.” Congrats to the new dad!

Sorry #WWE Universe, due to the birth of my child I was unable to attend #20Live and the officials thought it was best to just cancel the show. As they say in Stamford:

"when there is no Nese, there is no need to bother".

Lio Rush is not a fan of tonight’s 205 Live being canceled just hours before it was meant to take place.

“The Cruiserweight division deserves better,” wrote the current NXT Cruiserweight Champion on Twitter. He proceeded to thumbs down the announcement of tonight’s episode getting canceled and then did a impromptu Q&A with fans. “It’s unfortunate,” Rush said of the cancellation. “One of the biggest weekends in wrestling and a light deserves to be shined bright on a division that thrives on hard work, physically entertaining the fans and proving that they belong.”

Here are a few other highlights from the Q&A:

After his match this Sunday. I’d live to defend my Cruiserweight championship against @reymysterio and really test myself.

Hopefully, we’ll see the cruiserweights get a bigger spotlight going forward.
