WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander vs. Drew Gulak (Kickoff Match)

Drew Gulak won an incredible Fatal 4-Way against Mustafa Ali, Hideo Itami and TJP to earn the right to challenge for the WWE Cruiserweight Title. The reigning champion, Cedric Alexander, has said he’ll fight anyone at any time. Now, the time and place has been named.

As confirmed by 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick, Alexander and Gulak will clash for the title at SummerSlam, marking Alexander’s biggest showcase since winning the championship at WrestleMania and the biggest opportunity yet for Gulak, who has long been bubbling under the surface as one of WWE’s most talented and fearsome grapplers.

205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick reveals that Cedric Alexander will defend his WWE Cruiserweight Title against Drew Gulak at The Biggest Event of the Summer.

The two have had a handful of competitive matches in the past, but both have grown leaps and bounds since their last confrontation, with Alexander the hybrid, fighting champion and Gulak the savage, merciless mat master who has left countless opponents pretzeled on the canvas. The contest will also be a straight up affair, as 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick announced that Gulak's running buddies, The Brian Kendrick & Gentleman Jack Gallagher, will be barred from ringside.

Both Superstars are talented, hungry and worthy of championship glory, but only one will leave King’s County with the title in hand. Tune in to SummerSlam Kickoff, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network tonight at 5 ET/2 PT, to see who it is.
