Let us take a look at the top 8 WWE News & Professional Wrestling stories of the hour:

8. Cruiserweight Division Returning On Raw
Stephanie McMahon announced on Raw that the Cruiserweight Division will be returning to the WWE and it will be exclusive to the Raw brand. Below is what WWE posted regarding this:

“In an extremely bold move, Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon opened a whole new wing of the New Era by announcing that – following the success of the WWE Network exclusive Cruiserweight Classic – Monday Night Raw will be the exclusive host to a trailblazing WWE Cruiserweight division!

Although little is known about which competitors might be a part this exciting initiative, it is clear that newly-empowered Raw General Manager Mick Foley plans to utilize the fast-moving, high-flying athletes to help bring Raw to new heights. How high will the longest running episodic television show in history soar? Find out each and every week at 8/7 C on USA Network.”

The WWE Cruiserweight Classic has a weight limit of 205 lbs instead of 220 lbs. This was made to make sure most of WWE’s top stars don’t fall in the Cruiserweight category (but still most of the top wrestlers competing for the Heavyweight Title fall in the Cruiserweight category). It will be interesting to see how many current wrestlers on the main roster become a part of the Cruiserweight divison as the current WWE Champion Dean Ambrose also falls in the Cruiserweight category (he’s billed at 225 lbs but in reality he’s around 190 lbs).

7. Update: Dean Ambrose Gets His WWE Title Back

During the main event of Raw, both men had their shoulders on the mat but Stephanie announced Seth as the winner.

Update: Dean Ambrose gets his Title back after Raw goes off the air.
