– WWE is currently working on plans for a multi-week WWE Network series that will focus on lighter weight wrestlers, possibly this coming summer.
Details are still sketchy and plans will likely change or could be nixed altogether, but the idea is to produce a 10 episode tournament for “unknown” wrestlers that haven’t appeared on WWE or NXT TV, who weigh less than 205 pounds. One idea was to do something like a Japanese tournament but that could change as well.
Another version of the project would feature all indie wrestlers with the idea that they would be signed to WWE deals if they got over. Another idea was to mix “hot indie guys” with WWE developmental talents and use the show as a way for Manny Andrade (La Sombra) to make a big debut.
