Cedric Alexander says he originally thought Cruiserweight Championship would be part of NXT, comments on Rich Swann

WWE Superstar Cedric Alexander appeared on episode 89 of Heated Conversations: Hosted By Booker T to talk about various topics. During the podcast, he brought up that he originally thought that the WWE Cruiserweight Championship would be defended on NXT not on the main roster and later 205 Live. He said that didn’t think it would be on the flagship show of the company, RAW. He said that he was freaking out because it happened so fast (the transition from the Cruiserweight Classic to working the main roster).

When asked about current WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann, Alexander said he loves Swann as he has known him since he started in the pro wrestling business. He noted that Swann’s character is who he is outside of the ring as he is always dancing and singing. “To overtake Swann and try to, hopefully, take his position as top guy of the cruiserweight division, it’s going to take some thought.” He said that Swann has ten times more charismatic than he does but maybe one day he’ll have his number and take the championship from him.
