Tozawa and Kanellis prepare for a brutal encounter
Tonight on WWE 205 Live, after weeks of escalating battles and attacks, Akira Tozawa and Mike Kanellis will meet in a No Disqualification Match. Can Kanellis defeat the former Cruiserweight Champion and prove he belongs in the title conversation?
Can Kanellis defeat Tozawa at his own game?
Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Akira Tozawa is no stranger to No Disqualification and Falls Count Anywhere Matches. In fact, some of the most memorable matches in WWE 205 Live history have involved The Stamina Monster stopping at nothing to defeat the likes of his rival-turned-ally The Brian Kendrick. However, as Mike Kanellis looks to rack up some wins and prove that he belongs at the top of WWE 205 Live, his rivalry with Tozawa has reached dangerous levels.
Last week, The Opportunist attacked Kendrick as The Man with a Plan made his way to the ring, leading to a wild brawl between Tozawa and Kanellis that raged until they were separated by WWE officials. The incident was just the latest in a tit-for-tat struggle between the two Superstars that has often involved Kanellis’ wife Maria and Kendrick.
Now Tozawa and Kanellis look to settle the score in a No Disqualification Match. Can Kanellis prove his mettle – without the aid of his wife – against a former WWE Cruiserweight Champion, or will The Stamina Monster silence his nemesis for good? Tune in to WWE 205 Live at 10/9 C, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network!
