The Brian Kendrick def. Gentleman Jack Gallagher
The rivalry between Gentleman Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick continues to intensify, especially now that Akira Tozawa has been drafted to Raw. After defeating Tozawa in a No Disqualification Match last week, The Man With a Plan has refocused his attention on Gallagher. However, The British Superstar is looking to derail Kendrick’s momentum and turn the tide against him.
Before the match even began, Kendrick took the fight to his rival, decimating him with a Kendo stick and pressing forward with intense aggression that spilled into the squared circle as the opening bell sounded. The wily veteran maintained pressure on the British Superstar, maximizing punishment through technical holds and high-impact strikes.
Although Gallagher enjoyed a flurry of offense — even battling through a tightly applied Captain’s Hook — the damage Kendrick did early in the contest paid dividends. As Gallagher prepared to risk disqualification by using a Kendo stick, Kendrick was given ample time to recover and executed Sliced Bread No. 2 for the win.
