Former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin returned to WWE programming this week. He appeared on today’s episode of NXT UK in a video package. He had his Cruiserweight championship and proclaimed that he’s still the rightful champion.
Devlin has been off WWE programming due to the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, along with NXT UK going on hiatus until their recent return to action. As a result, Devlin was later stripped of the title, and WWE held a tournament to crown a new Cruiserweight champion. It was initially billed as an “interim” title before that label was dropped. Santos Escobar won the tournament and became the new champion.
During the NXT UK broadcast, Jordan Devlin stated, “This is the one real Cruiserweight Championship of the World!”
