WWE 205 Live wrestler Cedric Alexander spoke with Phil Strum of the Poughkeepsie Journal about the brand’s first house show tour. ““It’s an opportunity to branch out and create a whole new brand,” said Alexander, who went on to list Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio as cruiserweight inspirations. “They weren’t just the best cruiserweights in the world. They were the best wrestlers in the world.
“205 Live is getting more and more popular every day. I’m very confident that sooner, rather than later, it could be one of the hottest brands going. It’s a byproduct of us working hard, like NXT when they started. We’re taking a new crop of superstars and we’re in a building phase. We’re slowing building the foundation, one brick at a time, and Poughkeepsie is a great town for us to build, slowly but surely.” Read the full interview at Poughkeepsiejournal.com.
Powell’s POV: The talent in the division has not been the problem. Rather, the creative approach to the division has been a major flop and has damaged a lot of the talent. Hopefully the company will address the creative flaws before it’s too late. Meanwhile, Alexander also spoke about his previous work in Poughkeepsie for the Northeast Wrestling promotion, his growth since that early time in his career, and the WWE Cruiserweight Classic. WWE 205 Live will be in Lowell, Massachusetts on January 20, and in Poughkeepsie, New York on January 21. WWE cancelled the January 19 event in Kingston, Rhode Island.
