Cedric Alexander and Roderick Strong to battle in tournament semifinal
For the final four Superstars in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament, the opportunity to compete on The Grandest Stage of Them All is but one victory away. Next week on WWE 205 Live, the first semifinal contest will feature Cedric Alexander against NXT Superstar Roderick Strong.
The stakes are higher than ever for both Superstars. Strong seized the opportunity to compete in the tournament, defeating Hideo Itami and former Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto to advance to the finals. Additionally, Strong has managed to compete on both WWE 205 Live and WWE NXT without skipping a beat, showing off his incredible endurance and versatility inside the ring.
Cedric Alexander is no stranger to the WWE Cruiserweight Championship being within reach. Before the title was held in abeyance, Alexander was scheduled to challenge for the title at Royal Rumble. Despite the change of plans, Alexander has remained laser-focused on his goal, and he defeated Gran Metalik and the inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP to advance to the semifinals.
