Wrestling fans across the world are preparing for what should be an awesome Cruiserweight Classic. The Classic will be a first-of-its-kind 32-man tournament held at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and will debut on the WWE Network July 13. Fans became even more excited when Mauro Ranallo and Daniel Bryan were announced as the commentators for the event last week. Recently the competitors were all introduced at the WWE Performance Center. The tournament will have former WWE superstars, current NXT talents, and indie wrestlers from all over the world. You may have heard of Tajiri and Brian Kendrick who were previously in the WWE, and Rich Swann, Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa¬†who are currently in NXT. So instead let’s focus on some of the indie wrestlers who will be bringing ridiculous athleticism, crazy submissions, and insane jumps to the competition.
