Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa def. Noam Dar & The Brian Kendrick

Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa vs. Noam Dar & The Brian Kendrick: WWE 205 Live, April 25, 2017

Rivalries collide as Rich Swann teams up with Akira Tozawa to battle Noam Dar and The Brian Kendrick in tag team action.

Two rivalries converged on WWE 205 Live as Rich Swann joined forced with Akira Tozawa to battle their respective nemeses Noam Dar and The Brian Kendrick. As Tozawa continues to teach Kendrick lessons of his own, the rivalry between Swann and Dar intensified last week when Swann – revealing he was sending gifts to Alicia Fox – caught The Scottish Supernova lying to The Foxy Floridian about the origin of the favors.

Before the opening bell sounded, Kendrick and Dar attempted to attack their opponents to gain an advantage. However, Swann and Tozawa turned the tables and removed Kendrick and Dar from the ring, adding an exclamation point with a double dive to the outside. Back in the ring moments later, the match really began.

Although Swann enjoyed an early advantage, Dar and Kendrick displayed fluid and ruthless teamwork, dismantling the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion. The Man with a Plan masterfully prevented Swann from tagging in Tozawa with uncanny veteran awareness, but once The Stamina Monster made it into the ring, he displayed an incredibly agile offense that left his opponents desperate for relief.

Attempting to aid his partner, Kendrick grabbed Tozawa as Dar charged forward. Unfortunately for Kendrick, Tozawa ducked and The Man with a Plan was taken down by The Scottish Supernova, allowing Tozawa to execute a Shining Wizard for the win.

After the match, Tozawa took the opportunity to bestow a new lesson on The Brian Kendrick: Always choose a partner wisely.
