WHAT IS THE FLIGHTWEIGHT DIVISION?
The Flightweight Division is a cruiserweight-style class and a signature element of Nashville Pro Wrestling live events. The highlight for competitors in the division is the inaugural Flightweight Cup, a one-night tournament-style event that will crown its first champion on a date to be determined.
The class is open to any professional wrestler weighing 210 pounds or less who has demonstrated a superior level of agility, technique and athleticism in recognized organizations worldwide.
WHAT IS THE FLIGHTWEIGHT CUP?
This event is designed to showcase the most exciting Flightweight Division wrestlers from around the world with a mix of lucha libre, American strong-style and Japanese styles, among others. The format will feature a series of three-man contests, with the winner of each scheduled to meet in a final match to determine the Flightweight Cup champion. The final date will be announced.
Our May 24, 2013, event at the Old Hickory Community Center featured the first Flightweight Cup qualifying matches, with the winners guaranteed a spot in the final Flightweight Cup event. Qualifiers were Kyle O'Reilly, who won a three-person match over Antonio Garza and Shawn Shultz; and Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful, who won a special-stipulation tag-team match over three other teams.
