Over the last few months Cedric Alexander has been trying to work his way up the card, and it’s been reported that Paul Heyman is a big supporter of the former Cruiserweight Champion.

However, Dave Meltzer recently noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon wanted to bury Cedric Alexander at Clash of Champions on Sunday.

AJ Styles defended his US Title against Cedric Alexander on the Clash of Champions Kickoff Show, and Styles made short work of Cedric.

The Phenomenal One then followed up by pinning Cedric Alexander in a 6 man tag team match on Raw.

Recently it was reported that Paul Heyman wanted to give Cedric Alexander a slow push to the top of the card, so it will be interesting to see how he’s booked going forward.
