It appears as though fans are not happy with were the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match is taking place on the WrestleMania 34 card.. so upset in fact that fans have started a petition online to have the placement of the match changed.
It was announced on last night’s episode of WWE Monday Night RAW that the finals of the tournament to crown a new WWE Cruiserweight Champion will take place on the WrestleMania Pre-Show Kickoff Special.
You can see WWE’s tweet announcing the matches for the WrestleMania 34 Kickoff Pre-Show embedded below:
Here’s what YOU can see THIS SUNDAY on #WrestleMania Kickoff starting at 5e/2p!

A petition has been circulating already that was started last night following the announcement that the WWE Cruiserweight Championship match will be held during the WrestleMania 34 Pre-Show to have the match moved to the main card. The petition was started on Change.org, and the description reads:
“Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali are two of the company’s most talented cruiserweights and their championship match has been reduced to the Kickoff Show of Wrestlemania! These two men have worked really hard to get to this paperview, and as talented they are, they should at the very least be the first match on the main card. The fans need to have to watch them in order for them to get more exposure. They will put on a 3 1/2 star match at the very least. All you have to do is give them the well-deserved platform they deserve!”
If you wish to see the petition, or even sign it… you can check it out by clicking on the following link.
[Writer’s Note: I am literally laughing my ass off over this.. not because of the subject matter but because the person who started the petition expects to be taken seriously, but he can’t spell PAY-PER-VIEW… guy wrote “PAPERVIEW”. PAPERVIEW?! I’m legit dying over here.]
