Last night saw Finn Balor defeat Lio Rush to become the new Intercontinental Champion and 205 Live star, Cedric Alexander wants a title shot.
Alexander pointed out on social media that he was the first person to pin Lio Rush on 205 Live and the last person to do it on the show, asking if this means he can put his name in the hat for a title shot.
I was the 1st person to pin @itsLioRush
Does this mean I can put my name in the hat for a IC title opportunity🤔?#CedricVsFinn
