TJ Perkins: Bio

The flashy TJ Perkins has trained with and competed against some of WWE’s biggest Superstars. Now, he’s ready to make a splash on the worldwide stage.

The Fil-Am Flash broke into wrestling as a teenager, traveling throughout California and Mexico to sharpen his skills. He went on to hone his craft further at the Los Angeles dojo of New Japan Pro Wrestling along with Daniel Bryan and Shinsuke Nakamura, among others. After becoming the youngest American to compete for NJPW, Perkins continued to travel around the world and establish himself as one of the preeminent grapplers on the planet.

His style may be flashy, and he might be a little too cocky for some people’s liking. However, TJ Perkins can back up his swagger in the squared circle with top-notch technical wrestling. That helped him fly slightly under the radar in the CWC, where Perkins shocked the world by defeating tournament favorite Kota Ibushi on his way to winning the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic and becoming the first WWE Cruiserweight Champion.

Although Perkins lost the title to The Brian Kendrick, he remains on top of the Cruiserweight division, competing on Raw and WWE 205 Live, which airs Tuesdays at 10/9 C exclusively on WWE Network.
