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?

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

i agree, there are 50 guys on the roster that does what he does.
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.

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.

You know why, pal. He's swiss :vince3

These Heyman guys aren't going to go far. I think Paul's vision is just he wants more wrestling-based product. They are going over here and there, but they won't win shit. And by that I mean THE SHIT, the Universal Championship. Maybe it's his way of building midcard, who knows really. I agree in a sense that I don't want to see them going over some of the big names, but this is how he can build that IC championship prestige. At least he thinks he can.

We already have Ricochet. Now we have two Ricochets. It’ll never end.
Yeah, they’re legitimately about the same exact dude. Ali is almost in that camp, too, but some of his video packages added some character. Just another 180 lb. dude with no character that has the same moveset as every other 205 guy.

Yet, guys like Rusev and EC3 can’t even get on tv. Andrade is an afterthought, and Joe gets jobbed out incessantly. Murphy who could have been interesting and had some momentum building is likely to just be forgotten about again, too. It’s so crazy that a company with the depth of talent they have, can’t book anyone correctly.
The only person currently being booked well is Bray, and that’s probably only because he has so much control over his character. Booking is going to get him again very soon, too.

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
Indeed...Cedric Alexander. Why not John Smith. Or Mike Williams. Or Bob Roberts. Cedric has a generic name and no disceranble character.

Re: I seriosuly don't get this Cedric push

And a guy with solid mic skills like EC3 is on bench lol
Exactly, and Bobby Roode is stuck in another throwaway tag team never getting a chance to do anything as a singles wrestler, dude is freaking phenomenal on the mic. Yet Cedric is getting main events every other week and defeating top names and he can't cut a promo for shit and as others have said is even worse than Ricochet on the mic.

Guys with mic skills and charisma are screwed in wwe in this day and age for some reason.

This isn't a push. A push that ends in the us championship isn't a push. He beat AJ so he can face him at COC.
