We have seen Cedric Alexander getting some time in the spotlight recently and latest reports suggest that his push is expected to continue in the upcoming future.
According to reports from the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the former 205 Live star is one of the talents the new Executive Director Paul Heyman is high on.
However, it appears Alexander won’t be hitting any big shots in the near future as Heyman intends to push the former Cruiserweight Star slowly.
The ‘slow push’ strategy is said to be Paul’s plan for a few different Raw stars and it would be interesting to see which other roster members get pushed in coming times.
Cedric Alexander pinned the current United States Champion AJ Styles in the 10 men tag team main event on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
After this victory, WWE announced that Alexander will face the Phenomenal One at the upcoming Clash Of Champions PPV in front of his hometown crowd of Charlotte, North Carolina.
While many thought that Alexander could be headed for a victory in this match, in light of these recent updates, it’s possible that he will not win the belt.
Though his push is expected to continue regardless of the outcome of this bout and even if Alexander doesn’t win the title, he will surely get some moments to shine during the bout.
