William Regal announces that qualifying matches for WWE Network's Global Cruiserweight Series will take place on Evolve shows

I'm running out of jokes to make about pro wrestling in 2016.

There is very little I will be surprised by going forward this year - but that doesn't mean I'll stop marking out for news like the tidbit NXT General Manager (and WWE Developmental trainer & scout) William Regal laid on us at Evolve 56 in Brooklyn tonight (Mar. 19).

During his appearance at the internet pay-per-view (iPPV), one of Triple H's right-hand men said this:

Ladies and gentlemen, the reason why I'm here - I'll get to it. In a few months time, the WWE will be holding the Global Cruiserweight Series.

32 of the finest crusierweights from around the world will compete, and I am here tonight because I'm obviously scouting for those competitors.

Most importantly, qualifying matches for the Global Cruiserweight Series will be taking place all over the world, but the qualifying matches here in America will be taking place at Evolve.

So please, keep an eye out on the website and find out exactly when they are.

We'll bring you more details as we have them, Cagesiders, but as Mr. Regal said, exciting times.

Who do you want to see wrestle at an upcoming Evolve show for a shot at entering the GCS this Summer?
