Cedric Alexander is one of the fastest rising stars in all of professional wrestling. As War of the Worlds approached, Cedric was poised to have "the" match - the opportunity of a lifetime in front of not just ROH fans, but the entire world. One on one versus Kazuchika Okada.
But thanks to The Decade, Cedric Alexander was unable to compete at War of the Worlds. After a brutal beat down and disgusting backbreaker onto a pile of chairs, ROH officials refused to clear Alexander.
The biggest opportunity of his entire life gone...exactly what Roderick Strong wanted.
According to Strong, Cedric is the perfect example of a young, untested athlete who hasn't put in the time and work that "veterans" of the ring like he, Jimmy Jacobs, and BJ Whitmer have. The Decade have launched a campaign against the younger generation. Some, like Adam Page and Tadarius Thomas, bowed their heads and accepted the bullying.
Cedric Alexander fought back.
And while that resistance to The Decade may have cost him a match in the Hammerstein Ballroom, we can confirm now that Cedric Alexander WILL be in action when ROH comes to PPV at Best In The World. And he'll have his opportunity for revenge against Roderick Strong...in a Submission Match!
No pinfalls will be counted. In this match, the only way to win is this the ultimate show of dominance: getting your opponent to give up.
Will Cedric Alexander tap out to the Strong Hold? Or is June 22nd the night Roderick Strong is finally forced into humility? We'll find out in Nashville LIVE on PPV at BEST IN THE WORLD '14!
