Cedric Alexander sets his sights on WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore
Last night on Raw, Cedric Alexander accomplished his goal of earning an opportunity to challenge Enzo Amore for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. After winning the “Second Chance” Fatal 4-Way last week on Raw, Alexander faced The Certified G’s closest ally, Drew Gulak, in a fast-paced and hard-hitting contest that saw the Charlotte, N.C.-native secure his victory with a wicked Lumbar Check.
Laser-focused on winning the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, Alexander poses a major threat to The Realest Champ in the Room. As evidenced during the match when he left the commentary booth to answer a Twitter DM, Enzo is repeatedly distracted by Nia Jax. As the Cruiserweight Champion left the arena, Gulak was visibly taken aback by the abandonment, leading to Alexander capitalizing for the win.
Adding to Enzo’s potential distractions, the status of a unified Zo Train is certainly in question following The Certified G, Ariya Daivari and Drew Gulak teaching fellow member Tony Nese a brutal lesson in the form of a beatdown last week on WWE 205 Live.
With Alexander poised to become WWE Cruiserweight Champion, will Enzo’s focus on Nia and The Zo Train derail his Cruiserweight Championship reign, or is he confident enough in his abilities to dash Alexander’s hopes?
