Recently, there have been a whole batch of WWE Superstars suddenly popping up on independent shows. It’s a strange but welcome trend, and now we can add another name to that list.
Superstar Cedric Alexander is once again stepping into the ring for the independent company that helped kickstart his WWE career. Thursday night, WWE announced that Queen City’s Favourite Son would be handing out complimentary Lumbar Checks at EVOLVE 92 and 93:
According to WWE.com, Friday’s show will have Alexander facing off against fellow CWC competitor Zack Sabre, Jr in Detroit, and then Fred Yehi and his Ninja Turtle pajama pants the next night in Chicago.
We spoke to our favourite unlicensed chiropractor about what the weekend meant to him:
I’m very happy to be back in EVOLVE. I consider it both a blessing and a privilege that WWE has allowed me to come and use the reputation as a Superstar to put more eyes on a promising independent company such as Evolve. I look forward to sharing the ring and locker room with the talent, and also catching up with old friends.
An underrated staple of the independent circuit for years, Cedric Alexander truly came into his own after departing Ring of Honor for EVOLVE, where he quickly became one of the company’s top stars. It wasn’t long before WWE scooped him up for the Cruiserweight Classic, and then gave him a home on Tuesday night’s flyboy-dedicated 205 Live.
