WILW: Cruiserweight Classic finale

So here we are at the end of September. The first Cruiserweight Classic has come to a close. All summer we, the royal we that is, have had the opportunity to watch some of the very best wrestlers from around the world compete to be crowned the “first” ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion. It is a division that has been sorely lacking from WWE programming for years. Cruiserweights have traditionally been extremely entertaining in the ring with a variety of styles mixing together to make for compelling matches. This tournament was no different with some truly incredible matches week in and week out. The eventual winner, TJ Perkins, has a great story and it is one we will cover at a later date. His final two matches though are what we are taking a look at this week. Wrestling twice in one night is tough. Wrestling two highly entertaining, big spot matches in one night against world class competition is another thing entirely. These two matches, the first against Kota Ibushi and the second against Gran Metalik, represent the culmination of a hell of a journey for TJP. From homeless to champion with more ups and downs in between, he really is an inspiration. These two matches are hopefully the start of a long career in WWE. Check them out and let me know what you think. Until next time…

Dan Ryan

Dan Ryan was once the most feared and respected luchador in the world until the "Great DDT Disaster of '85" where Dan unfortunately DDT'd his opponent so hard into the ground that he opened a gate to the underworld that let unholy things into this world. After that, Dan refused to wrestle anymore but he's found new life writing and talking about his favorite hobbies here at Geekade. He pens the weekly Why I Love Wrestling series, co-hosts The Stone Age Gamer Podcast, expertly pairs video games with beer, and much, much more. Dan is a personality that Geekade simply would not be the same without.
