Cedric Alexander vs. Noam Dar (w/ Alicia Fox)

Result: Cedric Alexander defeated Noam Dar via pinfall

Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars

Why, oh why, is this still going on?

All three of these superstars deserve so much more than being stuck in a months-long love triangle feud. Like, this has been going on for almost a year, right? Cedric debuted on Raw in September of last year, and Alicia Fox was all over him shortly thereafter. Ten months of this nonsense?

The match itself is so stop-and-go because of the Fox involvement. Every time some momentum started building up, time for Foxy to get on the apron, or wedge herself between the competitors. And with the neck brace on, she reminded me of Psycho Stacy, Wayne Campbell’s ex-girlfriend from Wayne’s World.

The sad part is, the makings of a good match are buried underneath the garbage surrounding it. Cedric should be a huge star. The Lumbar Check is a move that pops even the deadest of crowds. You could even hear it tonight – the crowd wanted to like what they saw.

With any luck, since we’re getting to SummerSlam season, this is the end of this nonsense, and both guys will get something new to do. (Haha, they’re on 205 Live most of the time, no one pays attention to that.)
