If Drew Gulak was continue bringing fans a better 205 Live by ending the Age of Alexander, he was going to have to do it alone. DRAKE MAVERICK barred the submission specialist’s allies Gentleman Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick from ringside at SummerSlam in Brooklyn on Sun., Aug. 19.
As expected, things started out technical, but the Cruiserweight Champion’s quickness and acumen allowed him to to win those early exchanges.
After action spilled to the floor, however, Gulak caught Cedric Alexander with a boot to the head as he tried to re-enter the ring. The challenger followed that up with a knee to the back of Ced’s neck, and it was time for some ground-based punishment.
The champ’s neck continued to be the Cruiserweight Crusader’s target. Even when Alexander managed to create some separation with a move like a flatliner, the impact of his landing left him selling his injury. Eventually, the champ’s emotion fired him up and managed to get on the offensive:
But again, the transition back into the ring caused him problems. Drew crotched him on the top rope when he climbed for another aerial assault, then applied his GuLock using the ropes to inflict maximum damage before the ref reached five.
A series of quick counters brought about the finish. First, Gulak side-stepped a neuralyzer to apply the ankle lock, which the champ turned into a Spanish Fly...
Then a flurry of (sometimes sloppy) roll-ups and crucifixes ended with Ced on top.
And the Age of Alexander continues.
