NXT Cruiserweight Championship

The WWE Cruiserweight Championship was created in September 2016 as the top prize in Monday Night Raw’s Cruiserweight Division, featuring the best athletes in the world under 205 lbs. The title was introduced during the Finale of the 2016 Cruiserweight Classic, and presented to the winner of the 32-man tournament.

The WWE Cruiserweight Championship was renamed as the NXT Cruiserweight Championship on October 2, 2019.
