Who else will enter the Cruiserweight Championship Tournament?

Roderick Strong vs. Hideo Itami: WWE 205 Live, Feb. 6. 2018

NXT Superstar Roderick Strong tests his mettle in the first round of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament by facing the hard-hitting Hideo Itami.

Last week on WWE 205 Live, NXT Superstar Roderick Strong shocked the WWE Universe by entering the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament and defeating Hideo Itami. The hard-hitting displayed the resilience, skill and determination that WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick expects the Cruiserweights to channel when competing inside the squared circle. However, the appearance of Strong in the tournament understandably begs a question: Who else will enter?

Responding to a tweet from Gentleman Jack Gallagher Friday evening, Maverick seemingly confirmed that Gallagher, Mustafa Ali, Ariya Daivari and a surprise entrant would be the final four competitors in the first round of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.

Although the WWE 205 Live GM’s retweet of Gallagher was a question posed to the WWE Universe about the British Superstar’s opponent, the prospect of a surprise entrant – especially after Strong’s impressive performance last week – is certainly of note.

Will Maverick reveal the final four matches of the first round tonight?
