But now its official, on July 24th at Death Before Dishonor, that same man, Cedric Alexander, is gonna show him, show the whole world, that potential and famous friends and empty phrases, they don’t win matches, MOOSE. Ruthlessness wins matches, aggressiveness wins matches and most importantly, the guidance of Veda Scott wins matches.
