After vanquishing Gran Metalik, TJP and Roderick Strong in the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament, Cedric Alexander – the soul of WWE 205 Live – battled his close friend, Mustafa Ali – the heart of WWE 205 Live – in the tournament finals on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Following a hard-fought and emotional contest, Alexander emerged victorious, finally claiming the WWE Cruiserweight Championship as his own.
The victory caps off a long journey to the pinnacle of the WWE Cruiserweight division for Alexander, who saw his championship opportunity vanish when the title was held in abeyance before he could challenge for it at Royal Rumble. Despite the setback, Alexander remained focused and let nothing stand in the way of claiming the championship on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Alexander may not have much time to rest, as WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick wants the best competition for the WWE Universe, and Superstars like Buddy Murphy have their sights set on the championship.
Plus, despite the disappointing setback, Ali certainly proved that he is one of the best Cruiserweights in the world, and he will no doubt want another opportunity to challenge for the title.
What course will The Age of Alexander take WWE 205 Live, and who will step up to challenge the new champion? Find out tonight on WWE 205 Live at 10/9 C on WWE Network!
