Bray Wyatt's RAW Schedule, WWE Focusing On Cedric Alexander's Storyline Injury

Bray Wyatt's RAW Schedule, WWE Focusing On Cedric Alexander's Storyline Injury
- It's interesting to note that WWE is focusing on Cedric Alexander's storyline leg injury when promoting Monday's King of the Ring quarterfinal match against Baron Corbin on RAW.

It was believed that WWE had Cesaro give the injury to Alexander this past Monday as a way to set up his loss to Corbin.

Below is WWE's announcement for the Alexander vs. Corbin match from the RAW preview:
Cedric faces down Corbin … but there's a problem

Perennial underdog Cedric Alexander has been making a name for himself over the last few weeks, earning victories against Drew McIntyre and Cesaro as well as a quick defeat of Sami Zayn that sent the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion to the second round of the King of the Ring tournament.

A quarterfinal bout against the returning — and surging — Baron Corbin should give Alexander ample opportunity to cement himself as a star, but one question mark lingers over the match: a leg that took an absolute pounding during Cedric's victory over Cesaro last week and is sure to be a big target for the man who is already calling himself King Corbin. Alexander shouldn't be counted out, but facing a healthy, motivated Corbin does hand him a pre-match disadvantage, and he'll need all of his heart to overcome it.
- The WWE website now has Bray Wyatt advertised for every RAW episode through the October 28 show from St. Louis. Wyatt is not listed for the RAW and SmackDown TV tapings from Manchester, England on November 8, but he will likely be there. As noted, WWE had "The Fiend" Wyatt scheduled for this week's RAW but he did not appear live in the arena as advertised.

The current plan for Wyatt is to challenge the WWE Universal Champion at the Hell In a Cell pay-per-view on October 6 in Sacramento, inside the Cell. Wyatt is expected to issue the challenge to the winner of the WWE Clash of Champions main event between Braun Strowman and current champion Seth Rollins.
