Part of the NXT Cruiserweight Championship tournament took place during tonight’s episode of NXT, and two superstars picked up some huge wins that allowed them to set themselves up nicely going forward.

Both Kushida and El Hijo de Fantasma – who was wrestling in his first match with NXT – came away with big wins, as they defeated Tony Nese and Jack Gallagher, respectively. With the wins, Kushida and Fantasma move to the top of their respective groups in the NXT Cruiserweight Championship tournament. More matches will occur in the following weeks, with the two finalists competing against each other for the title of interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship.
