Tajiri vs. Damian Slater (First Round Match)

Tajiri vs. Damian Slater (First Round Match)

Tajiri, the most experienced competitor in the tournament, makes his highly anticipated return to a WWE ring in the first round, where he will clash with Damian Slater of Australia.

A well-rounded technical grappler from South Australia, Slater calls himself the “World-Beater,” because he finds himself in the underdog position more often than not. It will be no different in the CWC, as Slater finds himself up against a three-time Cruiserweight Champion.

The Japanese Buzzsaw has not competed in WWE in over a decade, but not much has changed about Tajiri in the years that have passed. He still possesses an arsenal of devastating kicks that can stop opponents in their tracks, and his blinding mist remains a threat to anyone who dares to step in the ring with him.

Will Slater’s determination to overcome the odds be enough to advance over the wily veteran? Find out when the next series of first-round matches take place on the Cruiserweight Classic, Wednesday night at 9/8 C, only on the award-winning WWE Network.
