Last night, The Brian Kendrick won the cruiserweight championship from TJ Perkins at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV) in Boston, Massachusetts. He did so by faking an injury and cheating his way into a submission that got a tapout victory.
Tonight, Perkins gets his rematch.
Having finally achieved vindication during what he described as his “last chance” at a WWE career, the line in the Cruiserweight division — which, as displayed in the Kickoff Six-Man Match, doesn’t have a slouch among it — now forms behind Kendrick. But, with Perkins stepping up for his rematch tonight on Raw, can Kendrick keep his place at the head of the pack?
If Kendrick were to retain, which seems the logical choice, than perhaps tonight is the last match between the two for a while. With so many talented men in the division knocking on the champion’s door, perhaps changing the title scene after tonight would help the division build some more momentum.
Tune in to Raw to see how it plays out?
