One of Hornswoggle’s only accomplishments in the WWE was that he was the last Cruiserweight Championship. Yes, their used to be a division strictly for cruiserweights in WWE. The biggest argument against the idea of bringing back this division is that WWE doesn’t care about the two secondary titles they have right now so why make another one? You don’t necessarily have to bring in a new title.
The cruiserweights in WCW and later WWE, and now in other promotions bring excitement. They aren’t about wins and losses, they are about putting on a fast paced match that gets the crowd on their feet and excited. They are great openers for shows. I’m sure their are plenty of guys in the WWE locker room looking for TV time. Wrestlers like Tyson Kidd, and Justin Gabriel that can put on a good match, but they don’t get time to show it. With Raw being a long three hours there are always slow parts. This is when it would be great to have cruiserweights. Give them time and they will put on a show and get the crowd into it again.
This division will also give exposure to guys that no one really knows, are forgotten, or are in NXT right now. What better way to make new stars than to showcase them in matches on Raw. Other than Kidd and Gabriel I can name other superstars that could benefit from this idea. Adrian Neville AKA Pac, Sin Cara, Yoshi Tatsu, and maybe even Ambrose or Rollins after the Shield. Also, occasionally put a guy like Daniel Bryan up against one of them and you have a great match. This would also bring more wrestling back into the equation of Raw which keeps some fans happy. Then, if the cruiserweight division is popular WWE can take away the U.S. title and replace it with the Cruiserweight.
I honestly don’t see how this could be a negative for WWE. They don’t need a Cruiserweight Championship right away. They can make new stars, and give other hard workers exposure on TV. And, it can make Raw more interesting. Let me know your thoughts about the idea of this division. Do you think it will work? Or will it just crumble? Thank you for reading.
