The Cruiserweight Classic had their final 2nd round qualification matches last week and like every week since its debut, these competitors have provided us with high quality, top notch matches. The winners of each match will be moving on to the quarterfinals beginning this Wednesday, and those men are as follows.
Rich Swann vs Lince Dorado
Winner: Rich Swann
Drew Gulak vs Zack Sabre Jr.
Winner: Zack Sabre Jr.
TJ Perkins vs Johnny Gargano
Winner: TJ Perkins
I feel like I am a broken record when I say The Cruiserweight Classic never disappoints, but it’s true! Each week is better than the last and you root for everyone to make it; that’s just how talented these men are. I actually called my pick for match of the evening even before the show ended last week, because I felt nothing could top Drew Gulak vs Zack Sabre Jr. As incredible of a performance TJ Perkins, Johnny Gargano, Rich Swann and Lince Dorado put on last night, I felt Gulak and Sabre stole the show. Counter after counter, it had me so entertained and captivated my attention.
