Fresh off being named the General Manager of WWE 205 Live, Drake Maverick set out to change the very landscape of his show by announcing a blockbuster 16-man Cruiserweight Championship Tournament – with a new WWE Cruiserweight Champion being crowned in the finals at WrestleMania 34!
In two subsequent first-round matchups that same evening, Cedric Alexander moved on to the next round by overcoming Gran Metalik, and TJP advanced by scoring a huge victory over the first-ever U.K. Champion Tyler Bate.
