The cruiserweight division has taken off in recent weeks, with the addition of new champion Neville and now Austin Aries, who just made his debut on 205 Live last week after months behind the commentary desk as he recovered from a broken orbital socket he suffered last October while still down in NXT. Some fans believed that Alexander was overdue for a push in the division, as Rich Swann and Jack Gallagher had programs for the title in the past few months.

He became a huge fan favorite during the Cruiserweight Classic when his second-round match with Kota Ibushi tore the house down. Fans chanted "Please Sign Cedric!" and Triple H came out to put his arm around Alexander, signaling to the fans that he'd think about it.
