Backstage Updates On The WWE RAW Cruiserweights

As noted, WWE has confirmed the following names for the RAW cruiserweight division – Gran Metalik, Akira Tozawa, Jack Gallagher, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Cedric Alexander, Rich Swann, Brian Kendrick, Noam Dar and TJ Perkins.

It appears this is the entire roster, for now at least, as PWInsider reports that the initial division will feature just 10 Superstars. It's very possible that new cruiserweights will be introduced to the division over time.

The current plan is for the RAW cruiserweights to work RAW TV events as well as WWE NXT TV events and NXT live events. They will likely start working RAW live events soon as well.

The division kicks off on September 19th at RAW in Memphis.
