Earlier today, WWE announced the first four competitors for the upcoming 8-man tournament to crown an interim NXT Cruiserweight champion. Now…the second group (Group B) has been released. They are Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, former champion Akira Tozawa, and a debuting El Hijo del Fantasma. Check out the details on each man below.
Isaiah “Swerve” Scott
Since his arrival in the Cruiserweight Division, Scott has been out to show the NXT Universe that it’s “Swerve’s House.” What better way to accomplish that than by becoming Interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion?
El Hijo del Fantasma
The second-generation luchador will make his NXT debut in the tournament. How will this world-renowned high flyer fare on the black-and-gold brand?
A Cruiserweight Division original, Tozawa will be looking to add a second reign as champion to his name.
Gentleman Jack Gallagher
Along with his new ink, Gallagher has unleashed a more ruthless side of himself in recent weeks. Will that pay off for him in this tournament?
Don’t miss a second of the action when the tournament begins on NXT this Wednesday at 8/7 C on USA!
