Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick: Take two

The Brian Kendrick brutalizes Akira Tozawa: Raw, Feb. 20, 2017

After Akira Tozawa rejected The Brian Kendrick's offer to become his protégé, The Wizard of Odd lashes out at his would-be ally.

The Brian Kendrick was finally slated to match wits inside the squared circle with Akira Tozawa on Raw, but the match never happened. After attempting for forge an alliance and mentorship with the Japanese Superstar, Kendrick was rejected on WWE 205 Live last week when Tozawa told Kendrick, “I don’t like you.” Kendrick took the insult to heart and before the opening bell sounded on Raw; he attacked the his fellow Cruiserweight and applied the Captain’s Hook.

Tozawa and Kendrick are once again slated to go one-on-one tonight on WWE 205 Live. The Japanese competitor will certainly not fall for any of Kendrick’s tricks again, but it is possible he could still be feeling the effects of being blindsided by the veteran Superstar. Kendrick, of course, hopes to teach his former prospective protégé a lesson, as he has done to a number of young Cruiserweights vying to make a name for themselves on WWE 205 Live.

Can Tozawa defeat Kendrick, or will The Man with a Plan make the rising star regret joining the Cruiserweight division? Find out tonight on WWE 205 Live at 10/9 C, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
