Format for interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship tournament revealed

WWE’s version of Best of the Super Juniors will begin this Wednesday.

NXT General Manager William Regal announced that there would be a tournament to crown the interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion this week on WWE’s YouTube show The Bump, due to current champion Jordan Devlin being unable to leave the United Kingdom due to COVID-19. Today, WWE revealed how the tournament will be set up, and it will not be a straight March Madness-style tournament like the Cruiserweight Classic, but a round robin-style tournament reminiscent of NJPW’s G-1 and Best of the Super Juniors tournaments.

From WWE.com:

-Eight Superstars will be split into two groups of four.

-Superstars will compete against each of the three other members of their group.

-The Superstar with the best record in each group will advance to the championship match.

-Any ties will be broken by head-to-head record.

-The winner of Group A will face the winner of Group B to determine the new Interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion.

WWE promises that the brackets for the tournament will be revealed tomorrow. Stay with AIPT as we cover this ongoing story.
