We’ve known it was on the way since the brand split, but we received a definitive timeline during Raw on Aug. 22.
The @WWE #RAW Cruiserweight Division begins Sept. 19 on @USA_Network! @WWE_CWC pic.twitter.com/Pdpfr6FWNV— WWE (@WWE) August 23, 2016
The live finale of the Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) is scheduled for Sept. 14 - the previous Wednesday on WWE Network.
There’s been a lot of speculation and rumor about how the tournament series would tie-in to the ongoing Raw division, but no light was shed on that topic tonight. Rich Swann, whose second round match is scheduled to air in two nights, was featured prominently in the spot which aired, but that’s it.
