The man with the plan?
Brian Kendrick took to social media to announce that he will be taking an indefinite leave of absence from the ring. Kendrick recently lost to Mansoor on the Nov. 8 (taped on Nov. 6) episode of 205 Live. Kendrick has been a regular fixture on 205 Live since the show premiered in November 2016.
It’s been 3 years since my last #Cruiserweight Title opportunity. Since then, it has become evident that nobody on @WWE205Live understands nor respects the road that I paved for them. Therefore I am taking an indefinite leave of absence from the ring. @WWE #205live pic.twitter.com/MJftDpQl1F— Brian Kendrick (@mrbriankendrick) November 15, 2019
Kendrick won the WWE Cruiserweight Title on Oct. 30, 2016, defeating TJ Perkins (TJP) at WWE Hell in a Cell. His reign lasted just 30 days, losing the belt to Rich Swann on the premiere episode of 205 Live. The 40-year-old veteran returned full-time to WWE in 2017 after a seven-year hiatus, taking part in the Cruiserweight Classic. Kendrick spent two years (2014-2016) working dark matches and as a trainer.
Fightful will have live coverage of 205 Live on Friday beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
