The WWE Cruiserweight Classic starts on July 13th only on the WWE Network.

Who’d have thought even a year ago that WWE would be hosting a tournament full of indie stars in the year 2016. After months of speculation, all 32 wrestlers and the brackets are now available to us and the CWC looks like it’s going to be one hell of a tournament.

It would have been easy for WWE to fill the tournament with members of its current roster, but instead WWE has scoured the globe and secured a host of wrestlers ranging from indie darlings to relative unknowns representing a wide variety of different wrestling styles.

The Cruiserweight Classic promises to be a fantastic tournament involving a host of really talented wrestlers. Here are 5 wrestlers to look out for from the field of 32.

#5 Brian Kendrick

Brian Kendrick was a young up and coming talent during the Ruthless Aggression Era, a talent that WWE somehow managed to squander. Kendrick’s in-ring work was spectacular and he was dynamite on the mic, but his smaller stature counted against him in the pre-Daniel Bryan era of WWE.

Although Kendrick holds the record for the longest Tag-Team Championship run along with Paul London and is a former TNA X Division Champion, his career could have been so much more.

Brian Kendrick currently works as a trainer at the WWE Performance Center and will be a fan favourite at the Cruiserweigh Classic. At 37, he’s no longer a spunky newcomer but a grizzled veteran with a point to prove.

Interesting Fact: Kendrick’s first professional wrestling match was against the ‘American Dragon’ Daniel Bryan, who was also making his pro wrestling debut that night.
