New NXT Cruiserweight Champion crowned at WWE Worlds Collide


NXT UK’s Jordan Devlin is the new Cruiserweight champion.

He defeated former champion Angel Garza, Isiah “Swerve” Scott and Travis Banks in a fatal four way for the title tonight at WWE Worlds Collide. The finish came when Garza was about to finish Scott with the wing clipper. Devlin came in and took Garza out of the equation with a headbutt  then pinned Scott with the devil inside suplex to win the championship for the first time.

After the match, Devlin cut a promo asking people if they believed in him now. He said he couldn’t be denied and you don’t bet against an ace.

Garza had held the championship for 45 days, defeating Lio Rush on the December 11 edition of NXT.

The Cruiserweight championship has undergone a number of changes in recent months. Originally a championship designed only for the 205 Live brand, it has since been moved to the NXT brand and has been renamed the NXT Cruiserweight championship. Earlier today, a new design was given to Angel Garza featuring darker colors.
