Raul Mendoza vs. Brian Kendrick (First Round Match)
Tonight’s final first round match features two competitors at very different stages in their careers.
Mexico’s Raul Mendoza is a high-flying competitor who has traveled the world to learn as much as he can about the ring game. He has impressed in promotions like Japan’s Pro Wrestling NOAH and AAA in his home country. Now, Mendoza is out to make the most of this huge opportunity on WWE Network.
His opponent, however, is Brian Kendrick, a former WWE Tag Team Champion with close to two decades of in-ring experience. In an interview during CWC: Bracketology, Kendrick revealed that he felt he let his opportunity at the big time in WWE slip through his fingers, and he sees the Cruiserweight Classic as his last shot at redeeming himself. Everything Kendrick has been doing since his release from WWE in 2009 has been leading up to this one match.
Can Kendrick prove that he belongs, or will Mendoza ensure that Kendrick’s WWE career remains a thing of the past? Find out when the Cruiserweight Classic continues tonight at 9/8 C, only on WWE Network!
