Triple H has signed back several former WWE stars and the list includes names such as Braun Strowman, Johnny Gargano and Bray Wyatt. It has been noted in the past that former WWE star Brian Kendrick was planned to make his AEW debut on the February 2, 2022 episode of Dynamite, but the company cancelled the plans due to Kendrick’s previous controversial remarks. Kendrick was pulled from his scheduled AEW match with Jon Moxley after a video of him questioning the Holocaust went viral on the internet. The former SmackDown star apologized for his insensitive comments as well.
Brian Kendrick has not officially signed with WWE
It has come to light that Kendrick recently tried out as a producer in WWE. He was brought in to produce the Ronda Rousey versus Shotzi Blackheart match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship match at WWE Survivor Series WarGames alongside Jason Jordan. Rousey specifically requested to bring back Kendrick for the PPV, Dave Meltzer reports. According to PWInsider, Kendrick isn’t officially back with company as of yet though the company did bring him to put up the SmackDown Women’s Championship match alongside Jason Jordan for Survivor Series.
Meanwhile, Ronda Rousey succesfully defended her SmackDown Women’s Championship at Survivor Series on Saturday night. However, she has received major heat. Many fans believe that Shotzi was the one who controlled the match and carried Rousey throughout, even being forced to overcome a dangerous botch on the ring apron.
Shotzi had climbed up the ropes whilst keeping hold of Rousey before going for a DDT where she jumped over the top rope. The Baddest Woman on the Planet failed to catch Shotzi and instead both women fell from the apron to the floor with the challenger taking the worst of the fall.
