Jordan Devlin Calls Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship The Ultimate Sham On Twitter

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.
