My only problem with the move is the day, I liked Talking Smack right after Smackdown and thought it would've been better suited going after NXT, but I get that taping schedules would royally screwed up Full Sail tapings since it would add more work load on students, which I doubt they can do.

Were only 3 weeks into "205 Live" & it already feels like RAW Cruiserweights instead of feeling like a continuation of the CWC. Maybe WWE should have lunched this right after the CWC instead of waiting for the division to die of RAW first instead.

I'm seeing it like the Divas Revolution, not the best start but the newer talent should settle and establish the division.
There's a host of wrestlers yet to establish themselves due to finishing prior commitments, or lack of time. So I'm optimistic once Aries returns you have a top character driven heel, and by then some newer faces established.
It needs a bit of time, I'll hold out judgement a bit longer till they get all there talent together
I actually think this week's episode showed some promise for it going forward. Yes no-one in the crowd seems to give a shit unless it's the 'big 3' but that's just likely because their program is the only one currently with any actual consequences attached to it i.e. the title. Give the others an actual purpose to their matches and people will start to care more. But this week actually did a good job in getting me involved with the title program, Kendrick was awesome on commentary in getting his character and purpose across and the angle at the end to me perfectly set up the dynamic between him, the babyface Swann and tweener Perkins. Get Aries in the mix and you have the beginnings of a solid base to build the division on.
