Cruiserweight Championship match moved to WWE Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show

Elimination Chamber 2019 - Akira Tozawa vs Buddy Murphy

In a move that surprises no one, the WWE has decided to put the cruiserweights on the Kickoff of the Elimination Chamber event this Sunday.

Buddy Murphy is set to defend the Cruiserweight Championship against Akira Tozawa. The two have never officially met in a one-on-one encounter before, and Tozawa is confident that one match is all it will take. On the latest episode of 205 Live, Tozawa stated that no one thought he could defeat “The King of the Cruiserweights,” but he wound up taking the title away from him.

It’s sure to be an incredible match, as the cruiserweights have consistently delivered over the past year, especially on PPV. Though it’s disappointing to see them relegated to the pre-show, it’s understandable considering how big the card is for Elimination Chamber, especially with two Chamber matches that will more than likely run over thirty minutes each.

    So… Here’s the thing WWE needs to do. Either:
    A) Make the pre show seem more important by having more matches with actual consequence, i.e, title changes, #1 contender matches, etc, ’cause as it stands, you know Murphy is retaining now that it’s on the pre-show.


    B) Stop putting the Cruiserweights on the pre show every damn time if they want anyone to care about the division.
