As noted before at this link, the tournament to crown an Interim WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion will continue next Wednesday on the USA Network. Both Group A and Group B will be in action – Group B’s match is the debuting El Hijo del Fantasma (Jorge Bolly) vs. Jack Gallagher, and Group A’s matches announced by WWE are Tony Nese vs. Kushida and Jake Atlas vs. Drake Maverick, who was released on Wednesday but still allowed to compete in the tournament. The tournament kicked off this week with just one match, as Group B’s Akira Tozawa defeated Isaiah “Swerve” Scott.
Both Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari took to Twitter to give props to Tozawa after the match.
Gulak wrote, “Amazing how effective @TozawaAkira can be when he isn’t focused on chanting… @WWENXT”
“205 OG @TozawaAkira! One of the best going today, hands down,” Daivari added.
Tozawa has not responded to their tweets as of this writing. You can see the full tweets from Gulak and Daivari below:
