The current plan for WWE’s “Global Cruiserweight Series” tournament is to film the entire tournament over five days during the tapings on the week of June 20th at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
Participants for the 32-man tournament will be decided in qualifying matches that will be held at EVOLVE, PROGRESS Wrestling and Revolution Pro events in April and beyond. Additionally, WWE will reveal talents via social media as a way to familiarize fans with performers who may not have previously worked in WWE.
The “Global Cruiserweight Series” is expected to have a ten-episode run on the WWE Network, and according to Triple H, he would like to see it become a new WWE annual tradition.
