And then it just stopped. There are a lot of people in WWE and not everyone is going to be able to get a push every single day. At some point a wrestler’s time on top comes to an end, or at least slows down a little bit. With so many wrestlers around, occasionally the bosses of the company are going to find someone else to push and that can be bad for someone else. That seems to be the case at the moment.
Before the WWE Draft, Cedric Alexander was on the roll of a lifetime in WWE and seemed ready to become a top star in the company, or at least get a heck of a push to see what he could do. This seemed to include winning the United States Title in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina at Clash Of Champions but Alexander came up short. Since then, his push has stalled and he has not wrestled on Monday Night Raw in nearly a month. So what happened to him?
According to Wrestlingnews.co, Alexander’s push came to an end for the simple reason of Vince McMahon gave up on him. McMahon stopped believing that Alexander was going to be able to get over in his role. Alexander has not been accused of doing anything wrong backstage or causing any problems, with the problem being more along the lines of him not being able to get over. His push has been shifted more towards Humberto Carrillo, who has been having similar feuds to Alexander’s over the previous weeks.
Alexander had a big run for a bit. Check out some of his moments:
Opinion: This isn’t exactly surprising, but at the same time it is a little disappointing. Alexander is someone with a lot of talent but as soon as he didn’t win the US Title at Clash Of Champions, the writing seemed to be on the wall. What else is there for him to do at this point? I’m sure he could be put into a feud and rebuild himself a bit, but his biggest chance seems to have come and gone, which is going to happen at times.
