Previously announced for the division have been Cedric Alexander, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Brian Kendrick, TJ Perkins (the former Manik in TNA), Noam Dar and Rich Swann. has been told that the initial division will feature ten talents, so it appears that for the rollout of the division, the entire Cruiserweight roster (for now) has been announced.  The initial plan is for the Cruiser talents to work Raw TV as well as NXT TV and live events.  One would assume that eventually, they will begin to work Raw live events as well.

The Cruiserweight division will debut at the 9/19 Raw broadcast from Memphis, TN.
