Cedric Alexander to face Drew Gulak on WWE Raw next week


A "second chance" cruiserweight fatal four-way match took place on Raw tonight to decide who would face Drew Gulak next week.

Cedric Alexander, Mustafa Ali, Tony Nese, and Ariya Daivari were involved in the match, with Alexander pinning Daivari after hitting the Lumbar Check. Alexander will take on Gulak in a number one contender's match on Raw next Monday.

Rich Swann was supposed to wrestle Gulak tonight to determine Enzo Amore's next challenger, but that was canceled after Swann was indefinitely suspended by WWE due to being arrested on domestic battery and false imprisonment charges on Saturday night.

Though they didn't go into details, WWE handled Swann's status by having Gulak inform Amore that Swann's opportunity had been revoked. Gulak told Amore about the second chance match, with Amore accidentally including Nia Jax in a list of possible wrestlers who would be in it. The storyline was that Jax has been on Amore's mind after their interaction last Monday. There was also a segment where Amore and Jax flirted on this week's show.
