At WWE TLC Kickoff, Cedric Alexander will finally have the opportunity to reclaim the WWE Cruiserweight Championship when he gets his rematch against Buddy Murphy.

The Soul of WWE 205 Live had one of the best years of any Superstar in WWE, winning the title at WrestleMania in the finals of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament for the then-vacant title against Mustafa Ali. Alexander enjoyed an undefeated streak throughout 2018 until he faced Buddy Murphy at WWE Super Show-Down.

In front of his hometown in Melbourne, Australia, Murphy defeated Alexander in an electrifying title bout to win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, sending his hometown fans into a frenzy. After losing the championship, Alexander fell into a bit of slump and was defeated twice by Tony Nese, which prompted WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick to refuse to give Alexander his rematch for the title at Survivor Series.

However, after dealing Lio Rush his first loss since The Man of the Hour debuted on WWE 205 Live and then pinning Buddy Murphy in a tag team bout, Alexander proved to Maverick that he was ready for the rematch. As a result, Maverick announced that Alexander would indeed be Murphy’s next challenger and that the match would happen at WWE TLC Kickoff, streaming live this Sunday at 6 ET/3 PT on WWE Network!
