As noted, the WWE RAW Cruiserweight division will officially kick off on tonight’s RAW from Memphis with new Cruiserweight Champion and Cruiserweight Classic winner TJ Perkins. WWE has also announced Brian Kendrick, Rich Swann, Gran Metalik, Cedric Alexander, Noam Dar and Lince Dorado for tonight.
There are rumors that Chris Jericho will be involved in a big angle with the cruiserweights on tonight’s show as a way to put them over and introduce them to fans.
I noted last week that WWE officials were very high up on CWC competitor Jack Gallagher, who is also coming to RAW. WWE did not include Gallagher on the list of names for tonight’s RAW but one source insists that he’s booked for this week. It’s possible that Gallagher will just be backstage. Original plans had Gallagher being featured the first week on RAW as he was expected to receive a push from day one.
