Cedric Alexander had a night to remember on Monday.
It was a big night for Cedric Alexander on the Sept. 9 WWE Raw as he defeated AJ Styles in the main event and took part in a beer bash with Steve Austin to close the show, which aired live from Madison Square Garden.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Cedric discussed his big night.
"The only thing in front of [Monday] was my wedding and birth of my daughter," he stated.
When asked if he was able to take in the moment, he said, "Numerous times, after that night, just sitting in my hotel room going, 'Wow, this my life.' It sounds cliche to say 'Dreams come true,' but that's exactly what that was. It was literally a dream that someone ripped out of my head and said, 'Alright, we're putting this on Raw.'
"It's scary. It's one of those things that I thought never would happen, but now that it is, it's almost unbelievable. To the point where, I try to describe how I feel about being closer and closer to the top of WWE and things like Madison Square Garden, and sharing a beer with Stone Cold, and getting a win over AJ Styles, it's almost like sensory overload because everything happens so fast. It just means that all the hard work that I've done over the last 10 years doesn't go in vain."
When asked if he feels any extra anxiety now that he's moving up the card, Alexander replied, "Of course. I freak out every day for Monday, not knowing what's going to happen and thinking, 'Okay, are they gonna put me in a more prominent spot and if they do, how do I hold up?' Honestly, when guys like [Mark Henry] and Paul Heyman and Booker T all come up to me and tell me how much they enjoy my work and give me feedback on what to do better and how to improve myself, it's honestly scary to me. You guys are the people I've watched my entire life. To know that you actually watch my work and you have feedback for me, it's overwhelming to know that your heroes are not only admirers of your work but actually want to help you get better. Of course, I have anxiety all the time about coming to the arena and wondering what I'm going to do, but at the end of the day, I have to get it into my head that there's a reason that I'm in this spot."
