Jordan Devlin is not a fan of the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship.
Devlin, who is the actual NXT Cruiserweight Champion, let his feelings regarding the interim belt be known on Twitter, saying whoever wins it is the "ultimate sham." The interim title was made as a result of Devlin being unable to travel to the United States due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Been watching the #nxtINTERIMcruiserweight Championship tourney & I've gotta say, some great heart on display. Lads fighting for their professional lives.— Jordan Devlin (@Jordan_Devlin1) April 29, 2020
Who will be crowned the ultimate sham? Who's gonna want the REAL Cruiserweight Champ to sign their replica title? #WWENXT
A tournament to crown an interim champion is currently underway, with eight wrestlers divided into two groups of four wrestlers each competing in a round robin format. Below are the current standings as of this writing.
- Jake Atlas: 1-0
- Kushida: 1-0
- Tony Nese: 0-1
- Drake Maverick: 0-1
- Akira Tozawa: 1-0
- El Hijo Del Fantasma: 1-0
- Jack Gallagher: 0-1
- Isaiah “Swerve” Scott: 0-1
Devlin won the title back in January at the Worlds Collide show, defeating Angel Garza, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott and Travis Banks in a fatal four-way match.
