WWE has confirmed that Humberto Carrillo will challenge Drew Gulak for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at Clash Of Champions 2019:
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak considers himself the law of WWE 205 Live, but at WWE Clash of Champions, he will test the rules of nature against the high-flying acrobatics of Humberto Carrillo.
Gulak and Carrillo are no stranger to one another. Early in his tenure in the Cruiserweight division, Carrillo found himself under the tutelage of The Philadelphia Stretcher, who hoped to teach the Mexican Superstar a more ground-based attack. After a falling out, Carrillo defeated Gulak in singles competition, though that was before Gulak’s outlook changed and he became the dominant champion his is today.
After an impressive showing in the Captain’s Challenge 10-Man Tag Team Elimination Match – specifically against his cousin Angel Garza – Carrillo stood victorious, claiming the win as the only member of his team left standing besides Oney Lorcan. While Lorcan hoped his team’s success would grant him another Cruiserweight Championship opportunity, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick felt Carrillo’s performance warranted a greater opportunity.
As a result, Lorcan and Carrillo squared off on WWE 205 Live in a thrilling contest that saw Carrillo claim his first chance to compete for the championship.
Will Gulak remain the law of WWE 205 Live, or will Carrillo prove he is the future of the Cruiserweight division?
