This past week on SmackDown LIVE, Daniel Bryan announced that Kalisto would challenge Brian Kendrick at Survivor Series for the Cruiserweight Championship.

Ever since its introduction to the main roster, the Cruiserweight division has been on Monday Night Raw, but the future of the division has been thrown into uncertainty following Bryan's announcement.

With Kalisto taking on Kendrick, it could see the belt and the whole division move from Monday nights to Tuesday nights.

If the former Lucha Dragon can defeat Kendrick, he will be crowned the new Cruiserweight Champion, and SmackDown LIVE would be the new home of the division.

Despite Kendrick only winning the title at Hell in a Cell a couple of weeks ago, according to NoDQ, WWE are planning on having Kalisto win the title, which would therefore see the division move to the blue brand.

NoDQ are reporting that as of last week, the plan is to have Kalisto win at Survivor Series.

As already reported, WWE have a new show coming to the Network called '205 Live'. The new show will be broadcast immediately following SmackDown LIVE and it's a show that will solely focus on the Cruiserweight division.

205 Live will showcase the division, giving the superstars involved more chance to impress and build a relationship with the WWE Universe.

Given the fact the Cruiserweight show will be broadcast on Tuesday evenings, it makes a lot more sense to have the whole division on SmackDown LIVE rather than Raw.

Since being put on Monday nights, the division has been underwhelming with the majority of the bookings being six-man tag team matches.
