Top 10 Reasons the WWE Should Bring Back the Cruiserweight Division

“Push the Cruiserweights!” was once the cry of the Internet pro wrestling fan who was sick and tired of seeing the same old World Wrestling Entertainment main events on programs such as Raw and SmackDown and also on WWE pay-per-view shows. Such a method of creating storylines did not, of course, ever truly happen. While the WWE did, for some time, attempt to make the Cruiserweight division something worth watching following the death of World Championship Wrestling and the subsequent WWE brand split, those running the company soon grew bored with the idea. The division now no longer exists.

This leads to the obvious question: Why not bring back the Cruiserweight division to the modern-day WWE product? The company has, over the past year or so, taken positive steps towards pushing a product that is about in-ring action as much as it is about performers cutting promos and about the more entertainment-geared television that leads some wrestling fans to change the channel on Monday nights. The time could be now for WWE creative to, at the very least, consider revisiting the division and how it would be recreated with the company's current roster.

There are all kinds of easy arguments to make for the WWE abandoning this idea once and for all. Why would anybody who has followed this company for any significant amount of time even believe that the WWE would not, in time, once again bury the wrestlers in the division and make it an afterthought? An answer to that question serves as a reason for why the WWE should attempt to push a new version of a Cruiserweight division, one that would allow top in-ring performers to get over among crowds on televised programs and also during house show matches.

The most exciting part of the WWE Cruiserweight division from the early days of the original brand split was the fact that fans of the product knew that they were going to get at least one entertaining contest every episode of SmackDown and every time that performers from that division took to the ring during a pay-per-view event. A match that involves two talented Cruiserweight wrestlers who are given adequate time to get their spots in is, more often than not, fun to watch. Bring back that fun, WWE, and bring the Cruiserweight division back to a company that needs an injection of life.
