Cederick Alexander Johnson (born August 16, 1989 in Charlotte , North Carolina , USA ), better known by his ring name Cedric Alexander , is an American wrestler who was under contract with World Wrestling Entertainment and regularly appears on their weekly show Raw .

His greatest achievement to date has been receiving the WWE Cruiserweight Championship and the WWE 24/7 Championship .

Wrestling career

In 2010 Johnson played many dark matches in the Wrestling League Ring of Honor , where he was later signed and given the ring name Cedric Alexander . There he formed the Tag Team C&C Wrestle Factory with Caprice Coleman from 2011 to 2013 . After the tag team was broken up, Johnson appeared as a single wrestler. On May 14, 2016, Johnson announced his departure from the Ring of Honor.

Johnson took part in the Cruiserweight Classic hosted by World Wrestling Entertainment , where he made it to the round of 16 and was defeated by Kota Ibushi.

After the tournament, he signed a contract with the WWE, where he became part of the re-established Cruiserweight division. There he was allowed to keep his ring name. He made his debut match for WWE on September 19 on Raw , where he was defeated by The Brian Kendrick in a fatal four-way match that also included Rich Swann and Gran Metalik . With the introduction of WWE 205 Live , he, like all other wrestlers in the Cruiserweight Division, became part of WWE 205 Live. There he was initially put as a valet by Alicia Fox , who, according to the storyline, was his girlfriend.

He sustained a knee injury in February 2017 and was out until May 23. In December 2017, he began a feud against Enzo Amore for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship . The two were originally supposed to play a match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship at the WWE Royal Rumble 2018 . This match did not come about due to the dismissal of Enzo Amore, so the title had to be vacated. At WrestleMania 34 he defeated Mustafa Ali in the tournament finals to win the vacant WWE Cruiserweight Championship and thus crowned himself WWE Cruiserweight Champion for the first time in his career. He then lost this title to Buddy Murphy after 181 days of reign .

Raw (2019-present)

As part of the Superstar Shake-Up 2019, Alexander switched from 205 Live to Raw on April 15, 2019 . On June 24, 2019, he won the WWE 24/7 Championship but lost it a few seconds later. On August 17, 2020, he won the title from Shelton Benjamin . However, he lost it again that same night.
