I thought it was good until the finish, why even do it if you're not going to commit to the win?

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

Just read about this. How does the reveal work if he lost? I mean it's still dumb even if he won, but at least it's classic pro wrestling & makes sense. If he lost the match where is the "gotcha" moment after the reveal?

Re: What did you think of Cedric Alexander Main Eventing Raw?

It's kind of silly when you think about it.

He decides to help Roman. Okay, why? What has Roman done for him? What does Cedric get out of it positively? He's now crossed Shane McMahon so Shane will likely make Cedric pay. Not too smart.

Then after a brief flurry of flashy moves he still loses the match. Doesn't that piss off Roman that Cedric came out under disguise and is an actual wrestler compared to Gary the janitor but still loses as easily as Gary would have? Makes him look like a goof. Plus the crowd not reacting when the mask came off also makes him look like a goof.

So it was a good idea in concept, but not well executed.

It's questionable why they had him lose, but perhaps they want to do this match again with the outcome being different and Cedric being himself.

I was there at RAW live. My first thought that went through my head when he came out in a mask, I was thinking it was gonna be Shelton Benjamin.

Pathetic is an apt choice of words.

I’m not even joking but I didn’t know who Cedric Alexander was before I looked him up this morning.

Hahaha that birthday massacre dude said the same thing in the live thread last night. Shelton is too busy smiling on SDL right now. (I know they probably won't even follow up on the clip from last week)

It ONLY works if he wins, that's classic pro wrestling. And he looked like an idiot standing there smiling after he just LOST. Also he was just another victim of "Super-Shane" in the end.

What is the WrestleMania main event gonna be at this rate? Drew Gulak vs Kalisto for the Universal title? Fucks sake. Get Heymans fat ass the hell out of here.
this is shit straight out of SvR 2011 Universe Mode.

Re: What did you think of Cedric Alexander Main Eventing Raw?

This right here is peak bad.

I didn't watch the youtube clip of the segment until literally just now, that's how tenuously I'm holding interest to this stuff, but seriously Vince wtf was this? Seeing his brief flurry of offense just reminded me how GOOD Cedric really is, but Jesus Christ old man. Everything about the story told here doesn't make sense.
