During a recent interview with The Charlotte Observer, Cedric Alexander discussed losing 25 pounds to make the 205 weight limit in the Cruiserweight Classic tournament, fans chanting “Please Sign Cedric” and more. Here are some highlights:

On losing 25 pounds to make the 205 Cruiserweight Classic weight limit: “I thought I was in shape at 230. I do way better in this weight class. I felt lighter on my feet and my joints weren’t aching so much from carrying around so much weight. I was a whole different animal.”

On WWE fans chanting “Please sign Cedric” after his Cruiserweight Classic loss to Kota Ibushi: “That really threw me off. I was already full of emotion from wrestling Ibushi – who, ironically, when we were doing interviews (for the show) that is the guy I wanted to wrestle. When the brackets worked out, that was enough to make me tear up. But hearing the crowd… my trainer, George South, used to say, ‘Sometimes when you lose, you really win.’”
