The 32 participants for the upcoming WWE Cruiserweight Classic have been announced

There are some major changes coming the way of WWE on the main roster in regards to the upcoming talent draft and brand split. However, one of the other intriguing things set to happen is the upcoming WWE Cruiserweight Classic in which NXT talent and some of the best cruiserweight wrestlers in the world will compete in a tournament at Full Sail.

Until Monday afternoon, there had only been part of the field for the WWE Cruiserweight Classic announced via winning qualifying matches or something else. On Monday, WWE released the names of all 32 competitors in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic.

Here’s a look at the 32 wrestlers that will be competing:

  1. Zack Sabre Jr.
  2. Kota Ibushi
  3. Noam Dar
  4. Da Mack
  5. Zumbi
  6. Cedric Alexander
  7. Fabian Aichner
  8. Gran Metalik
  9. Johnny Gargano
  10. Harv Sihra
  11. Gurv Sihra
  12. Rich Swann
  13. Brian Kendrick
  14. Akira Tozawa
  15. Jack Gallagher
  16. Tony Nese
  17. Tajiri
  18. Tommaso Ciampa
  19. TJ Perkins

  27. Clement Petiot
  28. Alejandro Saez
  29. Damian Slater
  30. Jason Lee
  31. Ariya Daivari
  32. Lince Dorado

Looking at that list of participants, there are some names that should be familiar to WWE fans (Brian Kendrick, Tajiri) and some that will be familiar to those loosely familiar with independent wrestling. What’s clear though is that the WWE Cruiserweight Classic is stacked.

There’s been no bracket announced yet for the WWE Cruiserweight Classic, though we do know that the tournament will take place over the course of four tapings on June 23, July 14, August 26, and with a live special on September 14. The first showing will air on the WWE Network on July 13.

With this field, you won’t want to miss a single match of the action.
