• Vince McMahon Wants To Bury Cedric Alexander
While RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman is high on former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander and wants to give him a slow push to the top, Vince McMahon doesn’t think the same.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince wants to bury Cedric and that’s why his match against AJ Styles for the United States Title was put on the Clash Of Champions Kickoff Show and AJ was booked to beat Cedric in a quick match that lasted less than 5 minutes.
Cedric was once again pinned by Styles on this week’s episode of RAW in a 6 man tag team match.
No word yet on why Vince wants to bury Cedric, but we’ll keep you updated regarding this.
