WWE introduced a Cruiserweight Division once again through the Cruiserweight Classic, a global tournament that brought some fantastic talent to the company. Now the Cruiserweight Division is under the NXT banner with KUDHISA as their champion.

According to a report from Fightful the plan is to emphasize the Cruiserweight Division and title on NXT programming more often. That was always the intention that they have been working toward.

NXT officials are also very high on KUSHIDA as champion. They have been pulling for him since he came in from New Japan Pro-Wrestling. The roster has since been built around him.

There has been a long, working plan for NXT to emphasize the Cruiserweight Division and the title more on their programming. NXT officials have been high on Kushida ever since he came in, as has the roster around him.


The plan is to integrate the Cruiserweight Champion into bigger storylines. Kyle O’Reilly challenging KUSHIDA this week is an example of that. The plan is to build bigger angles around the Cruiserweight Title as they continue.
