Two Brits advance to the WWE Global Cruiserweight Series tournament


It’s good news for Zack Sabre Jr. and Jack Gallagher as the two British indy stars have earned a spot in the upcoming WWE Global Cruiserweight Series tournament, winning their respective qualifying matches at a PROGRESS Wrestling show in London during the weekend.

Sabre defeated Flash Morgan Webster while Gallagher defeated Pete Dunne. They each booked a place in the 32-men tournament which will be filmed in a few months at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida.

Seven participants automatically qualified for the tournament after WWE announced Rich Swann, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Noam Dar, Akira Tozawa, Ho Ho Lun, as Lince Dorado will be on the show without going through qualifiers.

The new WWE Network series debuts on Wednesday, July 13 at 9PM ET.
