The Wrestle-1 Cruiser Festival was a professional wrestling single-elimination tournament held by Wrestle-1. The purpose of the tournament is to determine the promotion's top cruiserweight wrestler. The tournament is much like New Japan Pro Wrestling's Best of the Super Juniors tournament and Pro Wrestling Zero1's Tenkaichi Jr. tournament. Being a professional wrestling tournament the outcome of the matches and the tournament itself are not determined through pure athletic competition but through pre-determined outcomes to matches.
