BATTLE OF THE BREAKOUT STARS: Silas Young vs. Cedric Alexander
When you look at Silas Young and Cedric Alexander, your initial reaction probably doesn't see a whole lot of similarities.
Cedric is explosive and engaging, with crowds behind him in every city. He's young in his career - just getting started. Silas Young, on the other hand, is a cagey, grizzled veteran of the ropes. He doesn't care one way or the other if the fans support him. Two very different athletes walking two very different paths.
But when you look a little closer, are those paths all that different? Both men are watching their stock rise in ROH with every single match they have. In fact, both men are right now hot off World Title matches - the biggest challenges in their careers. And while neither was successful in snagging the title, both Alexander and Young proved they have what it takes to hang in championship competition.
Cedric Alexander is just half a decade into his career. He's one of the younger members on the roster, both in skill and experience. But from his very first matches, he had people saying, "this kid is something special." It's a unique combination of talent and charisma that Cedric has capitalized on through his hard work and dedication. Today in ROH, we are witnessing the future of professional wresting when we watch Cedric Alexander.
And then there's Silas Young. Older, more experienced, and a whole lot more bitter. Silas Young had been grinding away in the Midwest, making occasional appearances for ROH. Somewhere along the way, Young went from being a bright eyed kid into the antagonistic, outspoken "real man" we know today. Ever since he started speaking his mind (and attacking whoever annoys him), he's experiencing a true renaissance in Ring of Honor. He's at the height of his game. Just like Cedric Alexander, Silas Young is the future of ROH.
Two breakout stars will collide at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA! Alexander and Young are now confirmed to go one-on-one in Toronto. This will be an obvious clash in attitudes and styles - there's no telling what these two will dish out!
