The Brian Kendrick def. Akira Tozawa via Count-out

Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick: WWE 205 Live, Feb. 21, 2017

After assaulting Akira Tozawa on Raw, The Brian Kendrick aims to teach the Japanese Superstar a one-on-one lesson in respect.

ONTARIO, Calif. – Originally scheduled to battle on Raw, The Brian Kendrick unleashed his fury on Akira Tozawa, leaving him decimated inside Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center following a Captain’s Hook and walking away before the match even started. Kendrick has felt slighted after attempting to create an alliance and mentorship with Tozawa, only for the Japanese Superstar to tell The Man with a Plan that he doesn’t like him. This of course, led to Kendrick’s actions on Raw and their match on WWE 205 Live.

When the opening bell sounded, Tozawa wasted no time unleashing his rage on Kendrick. The Japanese Superstar was relentless in his offense. Kendrick was unable to counter any attack by The Stamina Monster until he managed to drive his opponent’s head into the ring post.

Although Kendrick enjoyed a wave of momentum, Tozawa battled back, sending his opponent to the outside of the ring. Looking like he was in full control of the match, Tozawa stunned Kendrick with a suicide dive, using his head as a battering ram. However, The Man with a Plan ingeniously managed to tie Tozawa’s foot in the ropes under the ring apron to win by count-out.

Following the contest, Kendrick showed no remorse for his actions – knowing he must win by any cost — and ensured that he was not done teaching Tozawa a lesson.
