Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Tyson Dux (First Round Match)
The first round of the Cruiserweight Classic continues tonight at 9/8 C on WWE Network with one of the most anticipated matches of the first round.
England’s Zack Sabre Jr., one of the early favorites to win the entire tournament, makes his debut in the first round, taking on Tyson Dux of Canada. Sabre, widely considered the best technical wrestler in the world today, walks into the biggest opportunity of his career, looking to show the WWE Universe why they call him a technical wizard. What kinds of tricks will he have up his sleeve?
However, standing across the ring from Sabre is Dux, who’s in search of his big break on the international stage. Dux, a 19-year veteran of the mat game, is highly regarded as one of the most proficient grapplers to ever come out of Canada. The 38-year-old competed many times for WWE in the early 2000s, until a severe knee injury sidelined him. Dux has been in search of that big opportunity since then, plying his craft for more than a decade in the ring. The Cruiserweight Classic may provide him with one last chance to make it in WWE.
However, to stay alive in the CWC, he’ll have to get through one of the best wrestlers walking the planet. Who will advance to the second round?
