This tournament is seen as a beginning of a new era for smaller wrestlers in the biggest wrestling company in the world. However, for now, this tournament will be a WWE Network exclusive, so many are labeling it as a tactic to attract more subscribers.

The tournament will be held at Full Sail University, the home of NXT. The tournament will take place on 4 different dates: June 23, July 14, August 26 and September 14. However it won't air live like other network exclusives.

Instead, it will be recorded and aired on WWE network from July 13 at 9 p.m. EST.
