5 Surprising #1 Contenders

The Brian Kendrick

Brian Kendrick is an awesome wrestler and it’s been great to see him back on WWE television. Kendrick is many things, however, a main eventer is not one of them.

Surprisingly, Kendrick was more than just a main eventer though, back in 2008 he was also WWE Champion for a matter of minutes. Kendrick won a battle royal on Smackdown to become one of the number 1 contenders for the WWE title, which would be on the line in a championship scramble match.

The main event scene was fairly depleted at this point, and the match was made of upper mid carders, but Kendrick’s inclusion was a strange decision, and the fact that he was made to look strong was even more bizarre.

Kendrick would be released from the company less than a year later, before returning after a 7 year hiatus last year.
