TJ Perkins def. Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann in a Non-Title Match

"The Outlandish" Rich Swann vs. TJ Perkins: WWE 205 Live, Dec. 13, 2016

Before defending the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against TJ Perkins and The Brian Kendrick at Roadblock: End of the Line, Rich Swann battles Perkins on WWE 205 Live.

At Roadblock: End of the Line this Sunday on WWE Network, “The Outlandish” Rich Swann will defend the Cruiserweight Championship in a Triple Threat match against TJ Perkins and The Brian Kendrick. Both of Swann’s opponents are former Cruiserweight Champions determined to reclaim the title and as a result, Swann faces his greatest challenge to date.

However on WWE 205 Live, Swann faced one of his opponents – and his friend – Perkins in a grueling struggle for momentum heading into Roadblock: End of the Line. After losing to Kendrick on Raw, Perkins was determined to make a powerful statement before the Triple Threat Match.

With Kendrick on commentary, Perkins and Swann relied on their respective technical ability as well as their high-flying agility. Striking with surgical precision, Perkins enjoyed a strong advantage throughout the contest, targeting Swann’s knee. Although the champion displayed his resilience, Perkins’ strategy paid dividends as he forced the champion to tap out.

Following the contest, Kendrick made his way to the ring to congratulate Perkins. However, Perkins responded with a superkick, followed by a warning for Swann that the inaugural Cruiserweight Champion is ready for Roadblock: End of the Line.
