Despite only being in the early stages, there is no denying the WWE Network's Cruiserweight Classic is already a huge success.

Whilst those in charge of WWE are often heavily criticised for making poor bookings and producing bad angles, the creation of this tournament was certainly one of their best ideas of late.

The event involves a hand-picked selection of 32 wrestlers from across the world, who compete during weekly shows in order to progress to the next stage.

Right idea

What may seem like such a simple idea has undoubtedly already proved a hit with members of the WWE Universe, not least because of the involvement of WWE legend; Daniel Bryan.

During this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, Stephanie McMahon announced that due to the success of the CWC, a Cruiserweight Division would be added exclusively to the Raw brand.

Despite Daniel Bryan being confirmed by Shane McMahon as the new General Manager of SmackDown, his involvement as a co-presenter and commentator will remain despite the division being a part of Raw.

New recruits

As if WWE was not at an exciting enough point in time, there have been rumours of the company adding yet more CWC names to its list.

As Wrestle Zone has reported, PWInsider.com noted that the live final of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic tournament on September 4 is thought to be to crown the WWE Cruiserweight Champion.

The site also stated that no CWC stars have been confirmed as signing for the division as of yet, though Kota Ibushi and Gran Metalik have already signed deals with WWE.

Other potential names which the company will look to have on their books could include stars such as Englishman Zack Sabre Jr, American Cedric Alexander or even more experienced talent such as Brian Kendrick. 

Whoever WWE decides to sign to its new Cruiserweight Division, there is no denying that Raw may well have an advantage over SmackDown for having a division with such great potential under its wing.
