Disappointed that Gentleman Jack Gallagher was unable to compete last week on WWE 205 Live, The Brain Kendrick and Akira Tozawa made an example out of their opponents before telling Gallagher to find a tag team partner upon his return. Addressing Kendrick and Tozawa on WWE 205 Live, Gallagher revealed that not only was he healthy, he had recruited NXT Superstar Kushida to be his tag team partner.
With the WWE Universe inside Madison Square Garden chanting his name, Kushida kicked off the match against The Brian Kendrick. Matching wits with The Man with a Plan, Kushida frustrated Kendrick with fast-paced attacks and a unique style that knocked the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion off his game. Kushida’s early offense allowed Gallagher to enter the match and flex his technical muscles, eventually forcing Kendrick to tag in Tozawa.
The Stamina Monster kept Gallagher from implementing his submission-based offense allowing Kendrick to tag himself in and toss Gallagher into the ring post. From there, Tozawa and Kendrick showed off their teamwork, keeping Gallagher on defense and focusing on The British Superstar’s shoulder.
Tozawa was displaying a more ruthless attitude as he and Kendrick exercised their will. However, Gallagher managed to seize an opportunity to strike, taking down both of his opponent’s and tagging in Kushida who unleashed an incredible flurry of agility resulting in a near-fall broken up by Tozawa. That allowed Kendrick to apply The Captain’s Hook, and despite breaking the hold, Kushida was unable to make a tag as Kendrick pulled Gallagher off the ring apron.
Working together, Kendrick and Tozawa took out Gallaher and focused their attention on Kushida. However, Kushida managed to turn Kedrick into Tozawa and immediately capitalize by applying a submission on The Man with a Plan and scoring a huge victory in his WWE 205 Live debut.
