As expected, WWE has announced the full list of competitors for the interim NXT Cruiserweight Title tournament.
This is being done due to current NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin being stuck in the UK over travel restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic.
On Sunday, WWE announced competitors in both Group A and Group B. Here’s the list:
- Drake Maverick
- Tony Nese
- Jake Atlas
- Isaiah “Swerve” Scott
- El Hijo del Fantasma
- Akira Tozawa
- Gentleman Jack Gallagher
The tournament begins this Wednesday on NXT TV. Eight Superstars will be split into groups of 4 for this round-robin style tournament. The stars with the best records from each group will then wrestle in the finals to become the new interim champion.
