“The Outlandish” Rich Swann def. The Brian Kendrick – WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match
No one can argue that momentum is not in “The Outlandish” Rich Swann’s favor after he won the Cruiserweight Championship on the inaugural episode of WWE 205 Live one week ago, and followed it up by defeating TJ Perkins on Raw. However, The Brian Kendrick was determined to stop that momentum and reclaim the Cruiserweight Championship in a Cruiserweight Title rematch.
As TJ Perkins and Austin Aries exchanged barbs on commentary at ringside, Swann and Kendrick wasted no time getting into the action in their high-stakes rematch. Neither Cruiserweight maintained an edge in the contest, giving each other their absolute best as they battled back and forth.
The champion tried to rely on high-impact maneuvers as Kendrick applied The Captain’s Hook multiple times, unable to make Swann submit. After battling outside the ring, Swann managed to throw his opponent into Perkins. Distracted by his nemesis, Kendrick made his way back into the ring only to be met by a spinning heel kick allowing The Outlandish one to retain the championship.
After the contest, a brawl between Kendrick and Perkins broke out that the champion interjected himself into. As the chaos subsided, Kendrick stood tall, having taken out both Swann and Perkins.
