The Brian Kendrick taking indefinite leave of absence from WWE; reason why revealed
Writing on Twitter ahead of this week’s episode of the cruiserweight-only show, the former Cruiserweight Champion highlighted the fact that he has not been granted a title opportunity in the last three years.
He went on to say that he does not feel respected as a roster member on 205 Live, so he is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the ring.
The Brian Kendrick’s Cruiserweight Championship history
After reaching the quarter-finals of the 2016 Cruiserweight Classic tournament, The Brian Kendrick emerged as the first challenger for the Cruiserweight Championship when the division debuted on RAW in September 2016.
The veteran won the title from TJP in October 2016 at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, but he only held it for 30 days before suffering a defeat against Rich Swann on 205 Live.
Kendrick received two rematches for Swann’s title, with the second one coming in a Triple Threat match (also involving TJP) at Roadlock: End of the Line in December 2016. However, as the man himself said, he has not had a title opportunity since then.
