I seriously don't get this Cedric push

What am i missing? dude has the charisma of a fucking lamp post, to me he's just a less charismatic version of Ricochet which is saying something, and he's not as good as Ricochet in the ring.

I mean he got this big moment in the main event of Raw where he dove off the side of the tron, he's beaten some of the top guys on Raw, now tonight he beat Styles in the main event.

I just don't understand this at all, if charisma and personality doesn't matter anymore which is evident with Cedric getting pushed, why can't Cesaro get this kind of push?

Well you can blame Heyman for his push. He is very high on him for some reason

That Lumbar Check looked cool, though.

But he is just another random smiling black guy (btw, no racism here), just like Apollo Crews.

Cedric Alexander is boring. His work on 205 Live when he was champion is also hollow.

Hes a Paul Heyman guy. Thank God Vince is still there to at least check him with guys like Corbin.

Exactly, he's no different than Gran Metalik who is also more talented than Cedric btw, he's no different than Lince Dorado, he's no different than Apollo Crews, he's no different than half the guys on 205 Live. He doesn't stand out or posses anything those guys don't have.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

I wouldn't say I dislike the guy as much as others do, but I do agree he hasn't really done anything that makes him stand out more than anyone else on the roster. His finisher is cool and a lot of the smaller guys sell it like a million bucks, but the move itself is not enough.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

Yeah I don't like it either. And strangely, SDL has three performers who are either from 205 live or otherwise 'underdogs' who have great potential and ought to be pushed and deservedly are getting the spotlight, in Chad Gable, Ali and Buddy Murphy. But on the Raw side, Cedric just doesn't seem interesting to me.

Raw is atrocious to me for many reasons such as Braun Boreman, Seth boring Rollins and Cedric being pushed. Ricochet as well.

Oh and Jesus, Cesaro? Strange that a heavyweight wrestling machine like Cesaro isn't closing MSG but Cedric is.

No character
No personality
No story
No psychology

He’s literally just a normal guy who does random flips to garner Pavlovian pops from the hardcore geek crowds.

This is why wrestling is dead
