Akira Tozawa & The Brian Kendrick def. Local competitors
Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick have one of the most storied rivalries in WWE 205 Live’s history, making them the unlikeliest of allies against Drew Gulak and Gentleman Jack Gallagher, their mutual enemies. As a result, it’s understandable that their first outing as a tag team against their nemeses last week on WWE 205 Live didn’t go as planned, and they suffered a defeat after a miscue.
Looking to get on the same page, Tozawa and Kendrick teamed up one again, despite Gulak and Gallagher – watching from the locker room – expressing their confidence that Tozawa and Kendrick don’t have what it takes to be a proper tag team like them.
As they squared off against a pair of local competitors, The Stamina Monster and The Man with a Plan dominated most of the contest by displaying excellent teamwork. The former WWE Cruiserweight Champions sealed the victory when Kendrick executed Sliced Bread No. 2 and Tozawa took to the skies to hit a flying Senton. Reveling in their victory, the former rivals congratulated each other and did a Tozawa chant together, proving they may be on the same page after all.
