Cedric Alexander & Goldust def. Drew Gulak & Ariya Daivari
Last night on Raw, Cedric Alexander made an unexpected new friend in former Intercontinental Champion Goldust. The Bizarre One answered Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari’s call for Alexander to find a tag team partner. Although he’s not a Cruiserweight – despite claiming a nip and tuck might change that status – Goldust assured Alexander he had a new ally in his battle against The Zo Train.
Despite being defeated by Alexander and Goldust on Raw, The Zo Train’s Gulak and Daivari demanded a rematch, no doubt to impress WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore, who is still sidelined with the flu. The Zo Train was caught off-guard by Goldust on Raw and looked more prepared as the match got underway on WWE 205 Live. For Alexander, he was looking to continue building on his momentum as he awaits The Certified G to be medically cleared so he can challenge him for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
Relying on his speed and uncanny agility, Alexander enjoyed an advantage early in the contest and tagged in his legendary partner, much to the delight of the WWE Universe. It was clear that Gulak and Daivari were still uncertain how to approach grappling with The Bizarre One because of the clear size difference and the always strange actions of Goldust.
The Persian Lion managed to counter a taunt from Goldust, allowing he and Gulak to finally gain an advantage over their larger opponent. Despite Alexander being tagged in, Daivari was able to knock him off the top rope, giving The Zo Train the opportunity they needed to do their leader’s bidding and dismantle Alexander.
Battling back, Alexander made a desperate tag to The Bizarre One who showed off his own Cruiserweight-like quickness and took down both Gulak and Daivari. The effort from the former Intercontinental Champion gave his partner ample time to recharge, taking down The Zo Train with a jaw-dropping dive to the outside before securing the win with a Lumbar Check.
