Cedric Alexander worked for Ring of Honor (ROH) from 2010 until 2016. He started as part of C&C Factory, a tag team with Caprice Coleman. They worked together until 2014, then he worked as a singles wrestler, usually managed by Veda Scott.
He left ROH in 2016, when he was invited to the WWE tournament Cruiserweight Classic. During the tournament, he was eliminated in the second round by Kota Ibushi, but received high praise, with the fans in attendance chanting "Please Sign Cedric"
After that, Alexander would sign a contract with WWE, working in their new cruiserweight division as part of the 205 Live brand. At WrestleMania 34, Alexander won a tournament to win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, retaining the title for 181 days.
In 2019 he was promoted to the main roster, starting to appear on Monday Night Raw. Speaking on Busted Open Radio, the Raw superstar analyzed the progress he’s made in his career: “For me, it’s been a long road of growth.
Not only as a performer but as a man, as a father and all that kind of stuff. So at one point in my career, I really just wanted to give up and just hang it, because I wasn’t getting anywhere, I wasn’t getting myself in good shape.
I didn’t feel dedicated. But it wasn’t until my daughter was born that I thought to myself if I give up then what example am I setting for my daughter? You know what I mean? Because you always tell your kids ‘Don’t give up, succeed at your dreams and be the best you can be.’ And now that I had someone to actually tell that to, I was like, ‘I can’t just give up.’ I can’t just hang it up and say, ‘Alright, this isn’t for me.’ This is something I’ve since day one and beyond."
