How Paul Heyman has been helping Cedric Alexander

In an interview with Pro Wrestling Sheet, Cedric Alexander noted how Paul Heyman has helped him become a better performer recently.

“It’s been great working with Paul. He’s really helped me feel more comfortable. He saw a match I had with Bobby Roode months ago on an episode of Main Event and he was a very big fan of it. He’s given me pointers on how to project myself better to fans and small little show business quirks. Because that’s one of the things I’m not 100% comfortable on sometimes, so talking in front of a camera is something that Paul has definitely helped me get more in tune with.”

Kalisto’s WWE deal up in 10 months

Former United States champion Kalisto tweeted that he will be a free agent in 10 months time.

Braun Strowman replied saying “adios” in an almost certainly kayfabe manner. Kalisto once beat Strowman in a Dumpster Match.
