WWE Top 10 takes you back to this week's Monday Night Raw to revisit the show's most thrilling, physical and controversial moments.04/25/2017 - 11:45
The flashy TJP 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, TJP 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, TJP 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 TJP 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 TJP lost the title to The Brian Kendrick, he remains on top of the Cruiserweight division, forging an alliance with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville and competing on Raw and WWE 205 Live, which airs Tuesdays at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
