WWE has announced a Cruiserweight Championship match between Lio Rush and champion Drew Gulak that will take place on next week’s episode of NXT.
KUSHIDA vs. NXT UK Champion WALTER has also been announced for the show.
Fans picked up on the fact that WWE altered the name of the title. It looks like it will now be called the NXT Cruiserweight Championship from now on. WWE.com also lists the title by that name.
While the title will be used on NXT, WWE is moving forward with 205 Live as the show has been moved to Friday after SmackDown on the WWE Network.
Gulak took his official Twitter account where he wrote the following about the match:
“I will usher in a new era for the #cruiserweight division with PAIN and PUNISHMENT. it begins next wednesday live at #nxtonusa. i have withstood the test of TIME. in WAR survival is the key. CHANGE is the rule. and i am the LAW!”
