Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Gran Metalik (Semifinal Match)
The WWE Universe could only hope that both of these renowned competitors would make it this far when the brackets were revealed in July, dreaming of the high-octane match that would happen were they to meet. Those big dreams are about to come true.
It will be a true clash of styles when the two stars meet. Sabre, known around the world as The Technical Wizard, entered the CWC to show the world that the highly scientific, mat and submission-based British style of wrestling is superior. On the other hand, Metalik is a speedy, high-flying proponent of lucha libre, the prominent wrestling style in his home country. The masked marvel has put his own on spin on the lucha style, learning to dash across the ring ropes and launch himself at his opposition. That ability earned Metalik the moniker “El Rey de las Cuerdas” – The King of the Ropes.
The road to the Semifinals has not been easy for either competitor. Metalik had to go through Alejandro Saez, Tajiri and Akira Tozawa to make it to the WWE Network live special, while Sabre defeated Tyson Dux, Drew Gulak and his close friend Noam Dar to cement his place in the final four. But only one man can make it out of this match and into the Cruiserweight Classic Final.
Who will move on to compete for the Cruiserweight Classic Trophy, mat maven Zack Sabre Jr., or high flying daredevil Gran Metalik? Find out during the CWC Live Finale, tonight at 9 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, only on WWE Network!
