Cedric Alexander def. Oney Lorcan

Cedric Alexander vs. Oney Lorcan - Cruiserweight Championship Tournament Semifinal Match: WWE 205 Live, March 12, 2019

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander faces NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan in the semifinals of the 2019 WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.

Following an impressive WWE 205 Live debut against Humberto Carrillo, NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan was determined to defeat Cedric Alexander and get one step closer to competing for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania. However, The Soul of WWE 205 Live is laser-focused on returning to The Grandest Stage of Them All and reclaiming the title.

Lorcan presented a unique challenge for Alexander, as the hard-hitting striker has a reputation for his sometimes wild demeanor. The Soul of WWE 205 Live had to find the right strategy balancing speed and striking, all the while absorbing brutal chops from his opponent.

After a skirmish on the top rope, Lorcan fended off a potential superplex and took down his opponent with a perfectly executed blockbuster. Unable to capitalize, Lorcan nearly fell victim to Alexander’s patented Lumbar Check, but The Soul of WWE 205 Live’s back gave out – a testament to Lorcan’s ability to dismantle his opponent.

Seizing the moment, Lorcan executed the Half and Half but was unable to secure the win. Alexander responded by dropping Lorcan on the ring apron before nailing a perfect Michinoku driver. Frustrated that Lorcan was still not defeated, anger overwhelmed Alexander, and he unleashed on Lorcan, only to be leveled by a European uppercut.

Once again taking advantage of the opening, Lorcan hit a Half and Half from the top rope, but Alexander miraculously kicked out. Irate, Lorcan began slapping the former champion, and just as he turned to the ropes, Alexander grabbed him and hit the Lumbar Check to advance to the finals.
