Cedric Alexander recently spoke with the Charlotte Observer to promote Monday’s RAW in Charlotte, NC at the Spectrum Center. Here are the highlights.
On losing weight to be in the Cruiserweight Classic:
“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 the Cruiserweight Classic:
“I don’t think anyone expected the show to take off like it did,” he says.
On Triple H walking out to the stage after his match with Kota Ibushi:
“That really threw me off,” says Alexander. “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.’ ”
