Chris King sheds some light on the “Heart of 205 Live” Cedric Alexander, and if the past month is any indication then we are all living in the Age of Alexander!
Whoever said these small cruiserweights from 205 Live could never survive on Raw and SmackDown Live, were dead wrong! The heart of 205 Live Cedric Alexander, gave his blood, sweat, and tears doing incredible things on the purple brand.
He was drafted to Raw via the Superstar Shakeup after WrestleMania, and while his run on the main roster started off rocky chasing after the 24/7 Championship Alexander has shot off like a rocket in the sky.
On the Go-Home-Raw for Extreme Rules, Alexander cosplayed as Gary “The GOAT” Garbutt, a regular garbage man. The self-proclaimed Best in the World Shane McMahon forced him to showcase his skills in the ring as The Big Dog Roman Reigns’ tag team partner against The Scottish Psychopath Drew McIntyre and McMahon himself.
In the main event, Garbutt shocked the WWE Universe by delivering some magnificent high-flying maneuvers, and ultimately scoring the upset victory with a roll-up.
Once the match was over, Garbutt removed his mask to reveal himself as Alexander and both McMahon and McIntyre were livid…How dare a smaller and defiant superstar to pull a fast one on them.
On the August 12th episode of Raw, after weeks of defiance Alexander and McIntrye clashed in the main event and the heart of 205 Live delivered a show-stealing performance but couldn’t stop an angry Scottish Psychopath.
Alexander then brushed the dirt off and refocused his attention to the 2019 King of the Ring Tournament until he caught the wrath of The O.C. two weeks ago. Due to AJ Styles, and Gallows and Anderson’s vicious beatdown, Alexander would lose his semifinal match with Baron Corbin.
Last night on Raw Alexander wisely took full advantage of a stunned (Pun intended) Styles, coming out of the gate firing on all cylinders. The young up-and-coming cruiserweight brought the fight to the United States Champion and appeared to have the match won until Gallows and Anderson caused a disqualification.

Could Alexander win his first singles championship on main roster as soon as Sunday?
In a matter of months Alexander has not only proved without a shadow of a doubt he deserves to play in the big leagues but, that WWE has a major star in their hands. Styles and Alexander battling over the United States Championship, in the coming months will be amazing and both competitors will deliver five-star classics!
