Amazing Red says WWE contacted him for the Cruiserweight Tournament; explains why he didn’t appear
Taz welcomed The Amazing Red from House of Glory Wrestling to the TAZ show.
Red states that he actually received a call from WWE to be a part of the Cruiserweight Tournament several months ago. Unfortunately, he was doing some in-ring moves for the WWE 2K17 video game just a couple of weeks before the Cruiserweight Tournament started, and he broke his leg and was unable to wrestle for the CW title
