WWE Cruiserweight Classic qualifying match highlights & a new EVOLVE tie-in

Lost in the excitement of the show closing angle at EVOLVE's Saturday (May 7) show in New York City were two Cruiserweight Classic qualifying matches. Today, WWE released highlights of those two matches that you can watch in the playlist above.

- Drew Gulak def. Tracy Williams
- TJP def. Fred Yehi

The winners join Zach Sabre, Jr., Jack Gallagher, Noam Dar, Rich Swann, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Akira Tozawa, Ho Ho Lun & Lince Dorado as confirmed entrants in the 32 man tournament field.

Speaking of Dorado, he'll be back in EVOLVE on June 11 when the promotion hits NXT's stomping grounds of Orlando. EVOLVE 63 is being billed as WWE Cruiserweight Series Flashpoint...

This event will be designed to prepare you for the WWE Cruiserweight Classic, which starts on July 13th on the WWE Network. It will showcase some of the independent talent involved. Already confirmed are Johnny Gargano, TJP with Stokely Hathaway, Drew Gulak and, making his return to EVOLVE, Lince Dorado. We will have more info in the upcoming weeks.

Word has it the Series will film the week of June 20, putting these gentlemen close to the Full Sail campus where the tournament will occur.
