Logo, dates revealed for WWE Network's Cruiserweight Classic

It's already been through a name change, and information about when it's taping wasn't entirely accurate, but we have our first official announcement - and a logo!

Filming over the course of four months is a new wrinkle, as reports had put the show - then known as the Global Cruiserweight Series - as filming in a chunk during the week of June 20th and then airing on WWE Network from beginning to end starting in July.

There had also been talk of Cruiserweight Classic matches occurring during NXT tapings, but that doesn't seem to be the case - although filming dates for the later months haven't been announced yet, so it's still possible. The June date is the night before a TV taping at Full Sail Live.

Also needed are a lot more competitors. As it stands now, only twelve of the 32 guys who will take part have been revealed.

Stay tuned, and get your tickets Friday!
