NXT CRUISERWEIGHT 2020

On April 8, 2020 edition of WWE’s The Bump, NXT General Manager William Regal revealed that a tournament to crown an interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion will be held.

The tournament began on April 15, 2020, to determine the interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion after Jordan Devlin was deemed unable to defend the title due to coronavirus pandemic-related travel restrictions. Eight wrestlers were split into two groups of four, where each wrestler would compete against the other three members of their group. The wrestler with the best record in each group will compete to determine the interim champion. Any ties will be broken by head-to-head results.

Group A consists of Kushida, Tony Nese, Jake Atlas, and former 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick, while Group B consists of Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, El Hijo del Fantasma, Akira Tozawa, and Gentleman Jack Gallagher. Although Maverick was released from WWE on April 15, he confirmed via Twitter that he would still be competing in the tournament, which could be his last matches in the company.
