PWInsider is reporting that the role of Gary Garbutt on this Monday’s RAW main event was supposed to be a local talent. Cedric Alexander was moved into the role, after a pitch during the day.
Alexander’s appearance was his first, since he was brought to RAW by the WWE Superstar Shakeup. There is supposed to be a continuation of Alexander’s storyline on this coming week’s RAW.
Alexander has come a long way since the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016, that saw a packed Full Sail chant “Please Sign Cedric.”
