The tournament to crown an Interim WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion has been confirmed to begin during next Wednesday’s NXT episode on the USA Network.
NXT General Manager William Regal will be announcing participants on more details on the tournament in the coming days.
As noted, Regal appeared on WWE’s The Bump to announce that he was holding the tournament because NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin is stuck in the UK, unable to defend his title.
On a related note, Mauro Ranallo called this week’s NXT episode by himself. There was no mention of Nigel McGuinness or WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix. Mauro confirmed during the broadcast that the Interim Cruiserweight Title tournament will begin next week.
