Check out this week’s WWE Cruiserweight Power Rankings to see who advanced with just four matches left in the first round.
Honorable Mention: Tyson Dux: Although he’s not as flashy as some of the other competitors, Dux’s look and attention to detail made him an awesome opponent for Zack Sabre Jr.
5: Raul Mendoza: One of the most talented performers in the CWC, Mendoza lost to Kendrick, but much like Sean Maluta, proved he belonged.
4: Zack Sabre Jr.: His style isn’t for everyone, but his talent is undeniable. His next match with Drew Gulak will be a mat classic.
3: Brian Kendrick: Veteran craftiness sometimes succeeds talent and Kendrick’s use of the Bully Choke was an awesome example of it.
2: Tony Nese: His win over Anthony Bennett proves the former TNA performer deserved this shot a real long time ago.
1: Drew Gulak: With a nasty Dragon Sleeper finisher and a ton of charisma, the silent type, Gulak will remind you of Dean Malenko. If that doesn’t sell you on how good he is, nothing will.
