IS TJP too overconfident?
Two weeks ago on WWE 205 Live, inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP made his return to the home of the Cruiserweights, defeating former champion Akira Tozawa. It was a bold statement for The Duke of Dab to make upon his return, and he appeared laser-focused on reclaiming the top spot in the Cruiserweight division.
Last week, TJP battled Gran Metalik in a rematch from the finals of 2016’s Cruiserweight Classic, and he was victorious in that initial meeting and would go on to win the tournament – a fact The Fil-Am Flash was all too happy to remind his opponent of before the match. Unfortunately for TJP, history did not repeat itself, and he was defeated by Metalik.
As the masked Superstar celebrated with his friend Kalisto, an irate TJP took out his aggression by trashing the announce table and overturning the steel steps. There is no doubting The Duke of Dab’s accolades or his success in helping build WWE 205 Live, but as the competition has only intensified – especially during his hiatus – has TJP’s confidence become a detriment that affects his in-ring ability?
