Akira Tozawa def. The Brian Kendrick

Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick - Street Fight: WWE 205 Live, May 23, 2017

The animosity between Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick boils over in WWE 205 Live's first-ever Street Fight.

The bitter rivalry between Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick logged its most extreme chapter to date as the two Superstars battled in WWE 205 Live’s first-ever Street Fight.

As the opening bell sounded, the tension in the ring was palpable. Kendrick quickly escaped to the outside to reach for a weapon, but Tozawa countered with a dive through the top ropes. Adding insult to injury, The Man with a Plan charged at his nemesis on the outside only for Tozawa to move, sending Kendrick sailing over the announce table.

The Stamina Monster wasted little time taking Kendrick back inside the ring and unleashed several strikes on his shell-shocked opponent. Despite a few flurries of momentum, Kendrick struggled to keep the intense Japanese Superstar at bay. However, the wily veteran finally took control of the bout, throwing his jacket into Tozawa’s face and commencing an aggressive offense.

In control of the contest, Kendrick showed how bitter the rivalry had become by duct-taping Tozawa’s mouth shut and applying the Captain’s Hook. The Stamina Monster soon escaped, dumping Kendrick to the outside where the two Superstars mercilessly brawled some more. Kendrick once again used the duct tape to trap Tozawa to the ring post, using his belt to attack his opponent’s back. Trying to up the ante and set up a table, Kendrick was stopped as the Japanese competitor broke free.

The bitter enemies continued to brawl, reaching deep down to throw everything they had at one another. Reversing another Captain’s Hook with a DDT into the steel steps, Tozawa placed Kendrick on top the table and ascended to the top rope. With the WWE Universe behind him, The Stamina Monster launched himself into the air, delivering a crushing senton to Kendrick through the table.

With his last bit of energy, Tozawa rolled Kendrick into the ring and secured the pinfall, delivering the final lesson.
