NXT Superstar Buddy Murphy trained harder than ever to make weight for the Cruiserweight division, entering the Cruiserweight Championship Tournament with his sights set on WrestleMania.

Last week, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick revealed the final two matches of the first round in the 16-man Cruiserweight Championship Tournament. Not only will Gentleman Jack Gallagher battle Mustafa Ali, but following Roderick Strong’s impressive victory against Hideo Itami, another NXT Superstar has made weight for the tournament, as NXT’s Buddy Murphy will battle Ariya Daivari.

Determined to seize the opportunity for a potential WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match at WrestleMania, Murphy has trained harder than ever and is ready to show the WWE Universe that there is truly a new era of WWE 205 Live.

With the first round of the tournament coming to a close, there will be eight Superstars that are all one step closer to battling for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Will Murphy follow Strong’s lead and advance?
