Jordan Devlin Calls The NXT Interim Cruiserweight Title ‘The Ultimate Sham’

Jordan Devlin is not a fan of this NXT Cruiserweight Championship tournament. Well, that’s about half true. He seems impressed with the guys performing but was quick to diminish the tournament itself.

Devlin took to Twitter on Wednesday to call the winner of the tournament the “ultimate sham”

“Been watching the #nxtINTERIMcruiserweight Championship tourney & I’ve gotta say, some great heart on display. Lads fighting for their professional lives.

Who will be crowned the ultimate sham? Who’s gonna want the REAL Cruiserweight Champ to sign their replica title?”

Tell us how you really feel, Jordan. Devlin is, of course, being kept away from the U.S. due to the coronavirus, making him unable to defend his title. He had won the Cruiserweight Championship at Worlds Collide in January.

The tournament is a round-robin style competition, similar to New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax. Competitors are squaring off with those in their respective blocks before those with the best records wrestle in the finals.

Group A features KUSHIDA, Jake Atlas, Tony Nese, and Drake Maverick. Meanwhile, Group B is made up of El Hijo del Fantasma, Akira Tozawa, Isaiah Scott, and Jack Gallagher.
