Complete and Accurate Brian Kendrick, 2014-Present



Brian Kendrick has been on most of our radars for over 15 years now, from he and Danielson being the prize pupils from Shawn Michaels' school, to a couple respectable stints in WWE, to long stints in Japan and TNA. He was a guy who was frequently on TV and frequently working for larger promotions. And then he was a guy who nobody really talked about, unless he was doing a stoned shoot interview with Paul London, or going on a fool's errand attempting to train Eva Marie on Total Divas. But I never heard anybody actually talking about his wrestling. And then the CWC happened and he clearly had the best showing in the tournament, and was wrestling differently than I saw him at any point in his career, and it came completely out of left field. When did he become this guy? Did he reinvent himself for this tournament? I'm not interested (at this point) in going back and watching him in TNA, or New Japan. I'm most curious about his stuff from 2014 on, when he was off of TV or out of major promotions - even major indy promotions, for the most part - but still working frequently. We'll see if there are any hidden gems. I rate my C&As slightly different from the ones Phil, or Phil and I do, adding in the REALLY GOOD category. So matches will be ranked as SKIPPABLE, FUN, REALLY GOOD, GREAT, and EPIC.
