The division tanked as soon as it was up on the drawing board. I've probably been more against the idea of a revived CW division than most people on here, so it's not as if my expectations were at an all time high anyways.

Besides, I take TBK's request as simple heel work; trying to appeal to Perkins' emotions and manipulating him into getting him what he wants. When that doesn't work, he does what any heel does and cheats to get ahead.

And like it or not, Kendrick has the most name recognition out of any of the heel Cruiserweights so it's not as if they're taking their chances on a complete nobody.

Nice to see I must say.
Speaking for myself, I don't care about it...but I like Brian Kendrick. He's more interesting than the actual division is. WWE needs to focus more on characters and less on flippy, dippy shit

Hell, if it were me, I'd put all the small guys in the CW division and make it like the UFC where it's as credible as the WWE title and can main event PPV's, and you'd have a division with guys like Styles, Rollins, Balor, Zayn, etc, and Kendrick and Perkins wouldn't be even close to title contention, but forget that. Why would you have a guy as your champion where the entire message to the audience is, he's old (he's younger than AJ Styles, Kane and plenty of other people who they don't portray as washed up, for the record, so this makes no sense), he's no good, and he asked his opponent to do a job for him.

I thinK they're just going with the heavy handed "tell them how to feel about the Kendrick character". The crusierweight division has been iffy, maybe they think just telling the audience " hey TBK is an old desperate vet, don't you want one of these new guys to beat him" will inspire more crowd reaction

Re: Brian Kendrick - The NEW Cruiserweight Champion!

Kendrick is a heel and playing the heel very well. He doesn't need to be moved up the card he needs to help elevate the CW division. It's been said to death on here already but the fact remains that the purple colour scheme is making the division look like a separate entity when it should be considered a part of the whole show.

Hopefully Perkins' rematch will be on Raw tonight and then it looks like Swann will be the next guy in line. Cedric Alexander has potential, I think he needs a slow build though and shouldn't enter the title picture for a fair while yet. The division is screaming out for a guy like Neville who has been on the roster for a while now. Neville is the guy I'd pick to challenge Kendrick for the belt at the Rumble. Then have a series of qualifying matches on Raw during the road to Wrestlemania to decide who the participants are in a six man ladder match for the belt.

Re: Brian Kendrick - The NEW Cruiserweight Champion!

It makes sense to have the belt on the only recognizable name in the entire worthless division.

Re: Brian Kendrick - The NEW Cruiserweight Champion!

I think it was a good move. TJP was flat as champion. His mic work couldn't overcome his gimmick. I'm not saying his gimmick is bad, but it's pretty easy to look like a tool doing it. "Whoa, press reset man" kind of writing didn't help him at all.

I hope TBK keeps it for a while. Cedric is the star of the division but he's not ready yet for the title.
