WWE has been ramping up to their Cruiserweight Classic series, and the anticipation of the tournament has been hot and heavy since before it was even officially announced. Now, after qualifiers in indie promotions like EVOLVE, Progress Wrestling, and Revolution Pro Wrestling, WWE has announced their final roster and hooooooooly sh-t.
We’d love to say that we here at With Spandex aren’t biased at all, but wrestling is our job and we are so, so excited for some of these participants. It’s no secret that all of us are pretty much in love with WWE Superstar Apollo Crews’ BFF, Japanese import Akira Tozawa, and have been for a long time. Fellow Japanese performer Kota Ibushi is our Golden Star, and we can’t wait to see North American audiences get to know them better.
