It was the week before the WWE Brand Extension Draft when Stephanie announced that the Cruiserweight division would be returning to Monday Night Raw. Since that announcement the anticipation of the cruiserweights returning has been on the minds of all the fans. Well next week on Raw that night will arrive as the first cruiserweight champion for Raw will likely be named at the end of the CWC tournament this Wednesday night.
The New Era is really right around the corner it's time to check out who will be apart of the division this time around to help bring the new era into full force on Monday Night's. That division will consist of names like Jack Gallagher, Gran Metalik, Akira Tozawa, Tomasso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Noam Dar, Brian Kendrick, TJ Perkins, and Cedric Alexander. It is very likely that some more names may join the division in the future. But in all honesty this seems like an extremely talented division already also factoring in Neville who already with the company and likely to be a part of the division once it begins.
It should be noted that WWE wants every member of the cruiserweight division to be under exclusive contracts to the company and unable to work elsewhere. For this reason both Kota Ibushi and Zack Sabre Jr will not be a part of the division or involved in the company in any way on the Main Roster due to the lack of willingness to sign an exclusive contract. Though Ibushi and Sabre would make this division a lot better and deeper as heck and next to incredible talent roster, but that will not happen unfortunately at least for now. Are you looking forward to the return of the cruiserweights?
