TJ Perkins def. The Brian Kendrick
It appears that at least one Superstar isn’t ready to supplant himself before “The King of the Cruiserweights” just yet. Despite Neville’s insistence that he is royalty among the 205 Live roster, TJ Perkins made a solid case for himself as a potential usurper by defeating The Brian Kendrick on Raw. Kendrick, who’s had Perkins’ number more or less since stripping him of the WWE Cruiserweight Title, dug into his usual reserves of veteran savvy, but Perkins was ready for his former mentor this time around. So when Kendrick found himself in position for Sliced Bread No. 2, Perkins quickly flipped an airborne Kendrick onto his shoulders for a detonation kick and transitioned seamlessly into the Kneebar to notch the submission.
