In an announcement, WWE has named the following five men as alternates for the Cruiserweight Classic tournament. If a talent gets injured or otherwise cannot continue on in the tournament, one of these men will fill that vacant slot. WWE.com has biographies on each of the alternate men for the event, which begins airing on July 13 at 9PM EST on WWE Network.
- Aaron Solow
- Jesus Yurnet (a/k/a Hammett)
- Jesse Sorensen
- Vandal Ortagun (a/k/a Jonny Vandal)
- Kai Katana
Bill Says: Surprising that WWE would bring in Sorensen, who had a major injury to his neck while working in TNA. They even acknowledged it in his biography. I guess this means he’s cleared to work in the ring?
