When we started the 205 Live Top 5 last month, we didn't expect it to be 3 weeks before we made another one. And yet, here we are.

The Top 5 is based on the last 10 weeks of 205 Live TV, plus any PPVs that include. Points are based on wins, losses and title matches. Points are depreciating, so a win this week is worth more than a win a month ago.

205 Live has not been broadcast since the last episode of Smackdown Live in the US. Things rose in the air for the purple brand, especially when the WWE Cruiserweight Title was renamed to the NXT Cruiserweight Title. Rumors are circulating that 205 Live may be on the verge of going extinct.

Cruiserweight champion Drew Gulak defended the title against Raw's Lio Rush on this week's NXT and lost. News broke on Sunday that Drew Gulak had been drafted on Smackdown. The 205 Live Lucha House Party had already been drafted on Smackdown Friday night.

What all this means for 205 Live is a guess. Traditionally, the 205 Live wrestlers have rotated under the Raw brand, although the show was taped after Smackdown on Tuesday.

Everyone was ready to write 205 Live off, but it ended up airing this Friday, live, after Smackdown. Anyone scratching their head?

Humberto Carrillo jumps to No.1 this week thanks to the loss of Gulak. Carrillo took advantage of Hot Boy Summer until a Triple Threat title match against Gulak, but failed in Clash Of Champions. Carrillo was not active on 205 Live this week. Technically, he's not signed with any brand, but let's just call him a 205 Live guy until that all clears up.

Oney Lorcan, who also failed in a Cruiserweight title match at Summerslam, jumps two places to second place. Lorcan and his partner Danny Burch beat Tony Nese and Gulak at the opening of 205 Live this week.

Ariya Daivari makes her Top 5 debut this week in 3rd place. Daivari clinched a victory over newcomer Chris Bey on Friday night.

Tony Nese is up this week to No.4. Nese was on the losing side of Friday night's tag team game, but he will still climb this week with the loss of Gulak and Lince Dorado.

Finally, The Brian Kendrick made his Top 5 debut in 5th place. Kendrick defeated Akira Tozawa in a No DQ Main Event on Friday night. It'll be interesting to see if Kendrick, or any of the other Top 5 guys, gets drafted tonight on Raw.

“Scream” star David Arquette has an extreme volonté that almost cost him his life — professional wrestling.

Two years ago, Arquette faced off against ex-con Nick Gage in a deathmatch, the most hardcore style where the wrestlers swing chairs, baseball bats and the like.

With blood gushing from his neck, Arquette gets up and tries to pin Gage but can’t. He jumps out of the ring, holding his neck. Then, he climbs back in and smacks Gage with a folding chair. After a couple of minutes, though, Arquette is the one who gets pinned.

“It nearly cost me my life, ” Arquette told the Star of the match. “I was in way over my head. I was about half an inch from death…”

Arquette decided to go back into the ring after fellow pro wrestler Jack Perry, the son of late actor Luke Perry, assured him that he wasn’t bleeding to death. Perry is the one who took Arquette to the hospital.

Arquette told the Star : “I could hear Luke but I couldn’t see him, ” Arquette told the Star. “I said : ‘Luke is it pumping ? ’ because I was worried I was bleeding out and he said : ‘No it’s not pumping. ’ I knew at that point I wasn’t dying immediately, I could try to finish the match. ”

Arquette has had a lifelong love affair with wrestling, which is traced in a new documentary, “You Cannot Kill David Arquette. ” The film tells of how Arquette has spent the past two decades trying to earn back the respect of the wrestling world — after he won the 2000 World Championship Wrestling heavyweight title as a publicity stunt for his movie “Ready to Rumble. ”

In those years, the 49-year-old Arquette has battled heart problems and drug addiction. After the Gage match, Arquette’s wife, Christine, told him : “I just feel like you want to die, ” the actor recalled.

“I don’t want to die but life is painful, ” Arquette told the Star. “If you have addiction issues like I do there’s an element in the back of your head that the addict is literally trying to kill you. You have to find ways to deal with it so you don’t continue to kill yourself, either slowly or quickly. ”

For Arquette, wrestling helped him deal with the deaths of Luke Perry, a close friend who died of a stroke, and his transgender sister, Alexis, who died of a heart attack.

“Losing someone is really painful but a few things have happened to make me feel we are all much more connected, ” Arquette said. “For wrestling, you shave everything and at one point I was looking at my arms and it was like I was looking at Alexis’ arms, as being transgender she would shave them… For a deuxième it was like I was looking through Alexis’ eyes… I think we’re a lot more connected than any of us know. ”

Through the film, Arquette has finally learned to accept himself. “I accomplished what I set out to do, ” Arquette told the Star. “I wanted to prove I could be a wrestler. And through this whole experience, I figured out – and it’s ironic – I need to stop beating myself up. I had to stop attacking myself and be kind to myself, as corny as it sounds.
