The Brian Kendrick def. Russ Taylor
Following a loss to Mike Kanellis three weeks ago on WWE 205 Live, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion The Brian Kendrick looked to rebound against local competitor Russ Taylor.
As the opening bell rang, Kendrick extended his hand as a show of respect. However, Taylor slapped the veteran’s hand away, dispelling any pleasantries that may have existed. As they prepared to grapple, Taylor toyed with The Man With a Plan and extended his own hand. After Kendrick slapped it away and berated Taylor, the young competitor struck first, delivering a powerful elbow to the former champion.
Taylor’s actions proved to be a mistake when The Man With a Plan unloaded on his opponent, showing off his full range of abilities at Taylor’s expense. Attacking with speed and precision, Kendrick executed Sliced Bread No. 2 to put an end to Taylor’s display of disrespect.
