NXT Cruiserweight champ Jordan Devlin is unable to travel at the moment due to the coronavirus pandemic, therefore a tournament has been announced to determine an interim champion.
General Manager William Regal made an appearance this morning on “The Bump” to make the announcement regarding the tournament.
“Due to current events, obviously, Jordan Devlin is in Ireland and he cannot defend his NXT Cruiserweight Championship. So I’ve decided that, in the meantime, we will hold a tournament for the NXT Cruiserweight interim Champion,” Regal stated.
The competitors and execution of the tournament will be revealed via social media in the coming days.
As for the NXT Tag Team titles, William Regal says he’s still making a decision regarding what to do with the belts as Pete Dunne is in a similar situation. Regal hopes to know more in the coming week.
