Ronda Rousey Asked WWE To Bring In Brian Kendrick For Survivor Series

Ronda Rousey Asked WWE To Bring In Brian Kendrick For Survivor Series

Views: 43 | Updated On: | By Jitu Jangir

First reported by Fightful Select, Jason Jordan and Kendrick worked backstage as producers for the match between SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and Shotzi at Survivor Series.

What transpired after his last stint with the company surprised not only the fans but many in WWE as well.

Kendrick started working for WWE in 2014 as a trainer. He would make his return to the ring during the 2016 Cruiserweight Classic, a tournament held by WWE for cruiserweight wrestlers. During his reign, Kendrick also captured the WWE Cruiserweight Championship once.

However, it was reported that Kendrick had asked for his release from the company, which was granted six days later on February 1. On the same day he was granted his WWE release, it was announced that Kendrick would make his All Elite Wrestling debut on the February 2 episode of AEW Dynamite, where he would face Jon Moxley.

But the match could not take place due to controversial comments made by Kendrick in the past. It should be noted that Kendrick did apologize for his comments.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted the following:

“So, what happened was, Ronda Rousey…Brian Kendrick was Ronda Rousey’s original wrestling trainer. She suggested...she asked for him to be brought in for her match with Shotzi. He was in on Saturday, and it was not a hire. You could say it was a tryout, I wouldn’t say it wasn’t a tryout, but it really wasn’t like a normal tryout. It was more Ronda Rousey asked for him to help her. Jason Jordan also produced it, but she asked for Brian to be brought in, so they brought him in.”
