The second round begins next week!
With Buddy Murphy and Mustafa Ali advancing to the second round in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament, the first round has officially ended. The first two matches of the tournament’s second round will take place next week. After defeating Gran Metalik in the first match of the tournament, Cedric Alexander kicks off the second round in a battle against inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP. The Fil-Am Flash advanced in the tournament following an impressive victory against first-ever U.K. Champion Tyler Bate and hopes to continue building his momentum all the way to WrestleMania.
Plus, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto – who vanquished his lucha brother, Lince Dorado, in the first round – takes on NXT’s Roderick Strong. Entering the first round of the tournament against Hideo Itami, Strong’s impressive and hard-hitting performance against the Japanese Superstar has made him an early favorite to win the tournament.
Who will be the first two semifinalists – and just one win away from challenging for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania?
