Early lifeEdit

Kendrick was born in Fairfax, Virginia, and is the son of Barbara Kendrick and the oldest of three children—a brother named Neal and a sister named Shannon.[12][13] He later moved to Olympia, Washington where he attended North Thurston High School in Lacey, Washington.[3][12][13] During his senior year, he worked as a dishwasher in a pizza parlor while saving money to attend wrestling school.

While growing up, Kendrick's favorite wrestlers included Ultimate Warrior, Blue Blazer and Koko B. Ware.[14] He was also a fan of Shawn Michaels, who trained him, and Chris Jericho.[14] He was already very good friends with his former tag team partner Paul London, with Lance Cade and Bryan Danielson, both of whom he trained with.[14]

Professional wrestling careerEdit

Early career (1999–2002)Edit

In 1999, he moved to Texas to begin training at the NWA Southwest wrestling school and later attended the Shawn Michaels Wrestling Academy.[12] It was there that Kendrick adopted the ring name Spanky,[3][2] a nickname he was given due to his method of staying awake during long drives on the indy circuit.[15] He made his professional wrestling debut on October 8, 1999 in a match with American Dragon that ended in a 10-minute time limit draw.[12] In October 2001, Kendrick wrestled American Dragon in the first round of The King of the Indies tournament, but lost.[16] The crowd, however, gave both men a standing ovation after the match.[3]

World Wrestling Federation (2000-2001)Edit

Memphis Championship Wrestling (2000–2001)Edit

In February 2000, Kendrick signed a developmental deal with the World Wrestling Federation, spending a year in the company's "farm territory", Memphis Championship Wrestling (MCW), before the promotion closed and Kendrick was released from his contract.[2][12] Kendrick won his first Championship in MCW when he defeated American Dragon for the MCW Southern Light Heavyweight Championship on September 22.[17] He later teamed with American Dragon to win the MCW Southern Tag Team Championship, on December 1, becoming a double champion.[18] The tag team disbanded after they lost the Championships to The Dupps.[18] On December 30, however, the Southern Light Heavyweight title was declared vacant after a match that Kendrick had with Derrick King.[17] In a match for the vacant championship, Kendrick regained the title after beating King, on January 6, 2001.[17] He later dropped it to Tyler Gates, before regaining it on May 11.[17] On June 1, however, Spanky was stripped of the title and it was abandoned, making Spanky the last ever MCW Southern Light Heavyweight Champion.[17] He also holds the record for most reigns, with three.[17]

Ring of Honor (2002)Edit

On February 23, 2002, Kendrick wrestled on the premiere show of Ring of Honor (ROH), winning the match to gain an ROH contract.[19] While in ROH, Kendrick competed in several other promotions such as Heartland Wrestling Association and All Pro Wrestling, before leaving for Japan in June to compete in Pro Wrestling Zero-One (Zero1).[2] There, he wrestled under the ring name Leonardo Spanky, a gimmick proposed by Shinya Hashimoto due to Kendrick's resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio.[20] On June 29, he became the first International Junior Heavyweight Champion in company history.[9][21] He dropped the title to Low Ki a few months later.[22]

Return to WWE (2002–2004)Edit

In late 2002, Kendrick signed a contract with WWE but was unable to compete until he completed his time in the independent circuit.[2] He made his WWE debut on the edition of January 11, 2003 of Velocity under the gimmick of a mascot representing the local sports team of the town in which he was competing.[23] He continued wearing masks for several weeks, each time competing under a different identity.[24][25][26] After acting as a telegram deliverer for Big Show to Undertaker, and getting a Last Ride for his troubles, he showed up the following week and began a series of events trying to impress the then General Manager of Smackdown! Stephanie McMahon in order to earn a contract for the WWE, including trying to last five minutes in a match with Kurt Angle. He eventually earned himself a contract on the March 20, 2003 episode of Smackdown! by defeating Shannon Moore. His first major storyline within WWE came on the May 1, 2003 episode of SmackDown!. He reverted to his former "Spanky" ring name after he interrupted a promo by John Cena.[27] The two feuded over their similar hip hop gimmicks, until May 22.[28] On October 30, Spanky began teaming with Paul London until January 13, 2004 when Kendrick left WWE to return to Zero1.[20][29][30]

Independent circuit (2004–2005)Edit

After leaving WWE, Kendrick wrestled in different independent promotions. He returned to Zero1 as "Spanky" and was quickly pushed to capture the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Championship. This occurred with partner Low Ki on February 19, 2004, when they defeated Dick Togo and Ikuto Hidaka.[31] They lost the championship to Tatsuhito Takaiwa and Tomohiro Ishii a few months later.[32] Kendrick gained a new tag team partner in Kaz Hayashi, on September 19, 2004, and won back the championships.[32] They held onto the titles until March 2005, when they dropped them to Hidaka and Minoru Fujita.[32] Although he lost the tag titles in March, Kendrick, as Spanky, received a singles push, and won the Zero-One United States Openweight Championship that same month.[33][34] but he lost the title in September 2005.[35]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2004)Edit

Kendrick had a brief stint in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in November 2004 under the ring name "Spanky" on the November 4 episode of TNA Impact where he defeated Kaz, Matt Sydal and Amazing Red, in a four-way match.[3] at TNA's first monthly three-hour PPV event Victory Road (2004), Spanky competed in a 20-man X-Division Gauntlet match for the X Division Cup the match was won by Héctor Garza.

Return to ROH (2004–2005)Edit

He then returned to ROH, as well as debuting on its sister promotion Full Impact Pro (FIP) on December 17, 2004, winning the first ever Florida Rumble.[3][36] On February 25, Kendrick wrestled a match against fellow WWE alumnus, James Gibson.[37] Throughout the match, the crowd chanted "Welcome Back!" and "SmackDown! Sucks!", and both men received a standing ovation after the match.[37] During his time in ROH, Kendrick was booked as a mid-carder, consistently having matches late on the card.[38] Kendrick also competed in the Trios Tournament, but lost in the first round with his team members, Gibson and Nigel McGuinness.[39] He unsuccessfully competed for several titles such as the ROH Pure Championship, ROH World Championship and ROH World Tag Team Championship.[40][41][42] In July 2005, Kendrick announced that he had re-signed with World Wrestling Entertainment, and would be returning there after he had fulfilled his obligations on the Independent circuit.[3] In FIP, Kendrick won the FIP Tag Team Championship with Sal Rinauro on August 6, 2005,[43] but lost it to The Heartbreak Express less than a month later, shortly before he returned to WWE.[3]

Second return to WWEEdit

Teaming with Paul London (2005–2008)Edit

In July 2005, Kendrick announced that after he had fulfilled his obligations on the independent circuit, he would return to WWE. He made his return during a live event on August 22, 2005, losing in a Fatal Four-Way match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.[2] He then reformed a tag team with his former partner Paul London on the edition of September 30 of Velocity.[44] On December 16, the pair remade their image, wearing theatrical masks to the ring with matching vests and shorts.[45] They were quickly elevated into the WWE Tag Team Championship picture, receiving a non-title match against WWE Tag Team Champions MNM on the edition of February 10, 2006 of SmackDown!, which London and Kendrick lost.[46] On April 7, they faced MNM again, picking up a win in a non-title match.[47] Their storyline feud continued, as London and Kendrick continued their winning streak over the champions, including singles victories for both Kendrick and London on MNM members Johnny Nitro and Joey Mercury, respectively.[48][49][50] London and Kendrick won the WWE Tag Team Title at Judgment Day, thus defeating MNM six times in a row in singles and tag team matches altogether.[51]

 
Kendrick as WWE Tag Team Champion in December 2006

Their first main competition for the titles came when K. C. James and Idol Stevens defeated the champions in a non-title match, in early August, igniting a storyline feud between the two teams.[52] During the rivalry, WWE Diva Ashley Massaro began accompanying London and Kendrick to the ring, acting as a valet to the team while combating the actions of James and Stevens' manager Michelle McCool.[53]

On October 14, London and Kendrick became the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions until 2016, surpassing MNM's previous record of 145 days.[54][55][56] Despite this, they were still booked as the underdogs in their feuds, and this was shown when they began a losing streak to the team of William Regal and Dave Taylor. Regal defeated both in singles matches[57][58] and on the December 8 episode of SmackDown!, Kendrick and London lost a non-title tag team match to the duo, although Kendrick beat Taylor on the December 9 episode of Velocity.[59] London and Kendrick had a scheduled title defense at Armageddon, against Regal and Taylor.[60] Before the pay-per-view, the match changed into a Fatal Four Way tag team ladder match with London and Kendrick defending their titles against Regal and Taylor, MNM, and The Hardys.[60] London and Kendrick won the match and retained the titles.[60]

 
Kendrick facing Snitsky during 2007

On February 2, 2007, London and Kendrick suffered a non-title loss to the rookie team Deuce 'n Domino.[61] In a title match at No Way Out, London and Kendrick retained the championship.[62] London and Kendrick, however, dropped the championship to them on the edition of April 20 of SmackDown!, ending their reign at 331 days (SmackDown! was recorded on April 17).[63][64] In the storyline, London missed a moonsault from the ring apron to the floor during the title match, injuring his ribs, leaving Kendrick to battle Deuce 'n Domino alone.[65] London and Kendrick unsuccessfully competed for the title on June 1 in a triple threat tag team match, which also involved Regal and Taylor,[66] and lost a rematch on June 15 in a standard tag team match.[67]

Kendrick, along with London, was drafted to the Raw brand on June 17, 2007 during the Supplemental Draft.[68] They won their debut match on Raw against The World's Greatest Tag Team on June 18.[69] They were soon established as a threat to the tag titles, and on the edition of September 3 of Raw, they won a number one contender's match for Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch's World Tag Team Championship.[70] Kendrick and London then worked a feud with Cade and Murdoch, and at a house show on September 5, they defeated Cade and Murdoch to win the titles,[71] only to lose it back to Cade and Murdoch three days later.[72][73] London and Kendrick continued to feud with Cade and Murdoch and lost to the Tag Team champions at Unforgiven.[74] For the rest of 2007, London and Kendrick mainly competed on Heat or in tag title bouts,[75][76] until London got injured in late 2007.[77] As a result, Kendrick was mainly used as a jobber on Raw, until London returned at the start of February 2008, although Kendrick still won sometimes on Heat.[78]

In his next storyline, Kendrick abandoned London during a handicap match with Umaga.[79] This abandonment resulted in Umaga performing the Samoan Spike on London, allowing Umaga to pick up the win over the duo. London and Kendrick still teamed together with no apparent dissension rising between the former tag team champions.[80] After defeating Charlie Haas and Robbie McAllister on Heat, London and Kendrick said they were ready to win the World Tag Team Championship. London and Kendrick beat the champions Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes next week on Heat in a non-title match. However, they failed to win the World Tag Team Titles on Raw after Holly pinned London.

On the edition of August 22 of SmackDown, Kendrick won a 10-man battle royal to qualify for the WWE Championship Scramble match at Unforgiven.[84] Kendrick won the interim WWE Championship title at the event, though he did lose minutes after having the longest reign as "interim" champion. As Kendrick was not the final interim champion, he never officially held the title.[85] He later teamed with Jackson on many occasions, becoming number one contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship held by Carlito and Primo, but they never managed to win the championship.

On April 15, 2009, Kendrick was separated from Jackson as he was drafted back to the Raw brand as part of the 2009 Supplemental Draft while Jackson was drafted to the ECW brand.[86] He wrestled his return match on Raw on the April 27 episode, against Kofi Kingston.
