Round 2 of the Cruiserweight Classic Tournament has officially ended and if you care, I got all my predictions correct!
Now the 2nd Round was still a little easy to predict but as we go through the final phases of the tournament, the matches won't just be great but hard to predict as well.
Anyways we got 4 great matchups for the Quarter Finals and whether I get any of these right or wrong I really won't mind whoever advances because all the wrestlers are deserving!
Without further ado, below are my predictions for the Quarter Finals of the CWC!
Akira Tozawa vs Gran Metalik
(Japan vs Mexico)
This is definitely going to be an awesome clash of styles as Akira Tozawa, an avid user of the Strong Style will take on Mexico's Gran Metalik, one of the best in Lucha Libre today!
I like both guys but if I only get to pick one on advancing the tourney, I'm picking Tozawa! I really don't have any other reason than Tozawa is freaking awesome! *cough* the best german suplex in the business *cough*
Zack Sabre Jr. vs Noam Dar
(England vs Scotland)
If you're a fan of technical wrestling then this is a match you don't wanna miss! Zack Sabre Jr. to many is the best technical wrestler today will take on the talented all-around wrestler Noam Dar.
Now as you saw above my prediction is a little bold but yeah I actually think Dar will pull off an "upset victory" if you will against ZSJ in their upcoming Quarter Final match!
Noam Dar is one of the few people already confirmed to be a part of the Cruiserweight Division at RAW, ZSJ on the other hand has said that he isn't interested signing with the WWE right now so that's really the only reason I'm seeing on why I pick Dar as the winner.
Kota Ibushi vs The Brian Kendrick
(Japan vs USA)
THE Brian Kendrick managed to defeat Raul Mendoza and Tony Nese in two intense matches at the first and second rounds respectively. I'm sure we'll get another intense match between him and Ibushi but this time I don't see Kendrick winning it! Sorry D-Bry.
Ibushi is just too much of a huge talent to lose in this match, I'm sure he'll make it to the finals (even though he probably won't win considering he's not signing with the WWE.)
But yeah The Golden Star will for sure continue his way on the tournament after that AMAZING match against Cedric Alexander in Round 2.
TJ Perkins vs Rich Swann
(Philippines vs USA)
Two of the most charismatic wrestlers will go head-to-head at the Quarter Finals as TJ Perkins will take on Rich Swann! This is for sure not only going to be a great match, but very entertaining as well!
I'm so happy to see my countryman TJP making it far in the tournament, he defeated Johnny Gargano one of the top picks to win at the 2nd Round which definitely surprised a lot of people!
Swann has also proved that he can not just be entertaining but a very talented in-ring performer too, what an inspiration story he has as well.
But as much as I'm a fan of Swann, of course I'm still going to be bias and pick TJP to win this match! Here's me hoping he make it to the finals and become the winner of it all!
He deserves it, after all he is often called the "youngest veteran" in wrestling due to him being at his early 30's but already had an 18 year career in wrestling and is still going strong!
