Jordan Devlin can no longer defend the NXT Cruiserweight Champion.

NXT General Manager William Regal made the announcement during Wednesday morning’s edition of WWE The Bump.

Due to the current health crisis, Devlin is in the United Kingdom, and cannot return to the United States to defend the title.

Regal announced a tournament will be held to crown a new interim champion.

He also stated another announcement will happen in the coming weeks to determine how they will handle the NXT Tag Team Championship, due to Pete Dunne also being in the United Kingdom.
