What has 205 Live done to attract those types of fans? Your run of the mill GenPop fan has no reason to give two flying fucks about Cedric Alexander or Lince Dorado other than being the small guys that work restholds to literal silence on episodes of Raw.

And your hardcores? They may come but if you were a fan of any of these guys before are you really falling over yourself to get watch sanitized versions of them live? Are hardcores all-in on the love angles that seem to be the central focus of 205 Live from the beginning?

The roster is great but a great roster alone won't make people care about something. 205 Live's traction on the Network is proof of that as well.

I don't think they are going to be disastrous but I find the assumption that they'll do well odd given WWE main roster's issues with attendance at house shows and tapings right now.
Well, three things:

1) A 205 show will not have the cruiserweights sandwiched between RAW matches or at the tail end of a Smackdown. They are there to be the show, not an add on and if they ever want people to come to another live show, they'd make the show more exciting. The need to do so for a house show is greater than even for the 205 tapings.

2) WWE house shows are completely in ring based aside from maybe a few things here or there. They are actually a lot of fun and much preferable to a live tv taping. Those who've regularly gone to house shows know this.

3) They are doing these shows in longtime WWE strongholds which don't get very much by way of live events besides maybe an NXT live show once a year. So, for fans in this locations, this is their chance to get live WWE.

Look, it wouldn't work everywhere under current circumstances, but as an experiment right now, I can't imagine it flops.

Watch these matches be CWC levels of entertaining... that'd be awesome.

Since no guys besides Enzo have merch, what will their merch stations look like? Enzo, Nia Jax, and Neville shirts?

Needs to be a complete overhaul of the show. Reset everything, run a 16 person mini CWC to crown a new champion. What they are doing isn't working. If no one is watching, they might as well be putting on some good matches.
