Welcome to the RealSport home for everything you need to know about the WWE Cruiserweight Classic!

The Cruiserweight Classic has been underway for weeks now on the WWE Network, and it’s provided some of the best pure wrestling that WWE has shown off in recent memory. Several superstars who were big names on the independent scene and other lesser known ones have skyrocketed their notoriety throughout the tournament, and some have even made enough of a mark to join Raw’s Cruiserweight Division once the tournament is over. If you’ve missed any of the action, need to know what to expect, or want to look back at how it all went down, you’re in the right place! Check out our full updated bracket, competitor bios, and recaps before you tune in to the WWE Network on Wednesday night for the LIVE special where the Semifinals and Finals will take place and we’ll crown the winner of the inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Classic!

I'm a former referee with the Doomsday Wrestling promotion. I've been an avid fan for over fifteen years and have written about wrestling for over a decade.
