High-stakes Fatal 4-Way showdown
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander has proven himself to be a fighting titleholder and has successfully defended the gold against Buddy Murphy and Hideo Itami in recent weeks. However, he is determined to keep The Age of Alexander alive and is hungry for his next challenger.
After asking WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick who his next challenger would be, Alexander discovered that a Fatal 4-Way Match would determine his opponent. Mustafa Ali, Hideo Itami, TJP and Drew Gulak have all made compelling cases for an opportunity and will clash to determine who will challenge Alexander. Ali impressed in a brutal battle with Buddy Murphy; Itami pushed the champion to the limit in their recent contest; TJP decimated a returning Noam Dar to prove he is prepared for the highest level of competition; and Drew Gulak destroyed his latest opponent to send a clear message to The Soul of WWE 205 Live.
Who will face Cedric Alexander for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship? Find out tonight at 10/9 C on WWE 205 Live on the award-winning WWE Network!
