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. During a long interview with talkSPORT, Alexander talked about working with Paul Heyman: “Working with Paul Heyman has been a dream come true and something that I never really thought would happen.
Because he’s like the godfather of ECW, I thought, ‘I’ll never be his type of ECW guy. Oh, he’s Brock’s advocate? He’s a Brock Guy, there’s no way I’ll get to work with Heyman.’ But talking to him and picking his brain has helped me tremendously.
He’s helped me with my in-ring work, my confidence and just being more comfortable as an all-round. I love it”.
