- TJP continued his disgruntled cruiserweight storyline on last night's WWE 205 Live episode as he defeated Brian Keith, an enhancement talent, while working the mic and talking trash about 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick. TJP has been teasing a possible switch to WWE NXT, RAW or SmackDown because he feels like Maverick doesn't appreciate him.
On a related note, Keith is a student of the Reality of Wrestling promotion owned by WWE Hall of Famer Booker T. He works under the name "The Bounty Hunter" Bryan Keith. Above is video from last night's match.
