Brian David Kendrick (born May 29, 1979) is an American professional wrestler currently wrestling on the RAW brand of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
Kendrick has previously worked for Ring of Honor, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, Pro Wrestling ZERO1-MAX, and other various independent and Japanese promotions, usually under the ring name Spanky. In Japan his ring name is Leonardo Spanky, due to his resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio.
His first match, for the Texas Wrestling Alliance against fellow Texas Wrestling Academy graduate "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson, ended in a 10-min time limit draw and received a standing ovation. He proceeded to make a name for himself in UPW, Ring of Honor, and Pro Wrestling ZERO-ONE thanks to his great ringwork and the eccentric persona he crafted for himself. Spanky competed in the 2001 King of Indies Tournament.
On February 2, 2007, London and Kendrick suffered a non-title loss to the rookie team Deuce 'N Domino, in what was their third match on the main show. However, in a title match at No Way Out 2007 London and Kendrick would retain the titles.
Kendrick and London would later begin a very short feud with MNM which would in turn make Ashley the team's valet. The feud would end with Kendrick and London once again retaining the WWE Tag Team Championship against MNM. However, Ashley was injured just 3 weeks after becoming the team's valet when she was attacked backstage by Jillian Hall.
On April 20, 2007, London and Kendrick lost the WWE Tag Team Championship to Deuce 'N Domino on the 400th episode of SmackDown!, ending their 334 days as champions in Milan, Italy. On the May 25 edition of Smackdown!, Kendrick and London competed in a number 1 contenders match for the WWE Tag Team Championship against William Regal and Dave Taylor which they won when Deuce 'N Domino interfered, making both competitors the number 1 contenders. The next week on Smackdown, Kendrick and London were defeated in a triple threat tag match for the WWE Tag Team Championship by Deuce 'N Domino, which also involved William Regal and Dave Taylor. On the June 15 edition of Smackdown!, Kendrick and London got what would be their last shot at the WWE Tag Team Championship, in which they were defeated.
Kendrick was drafted to RAW along with London during the supplemental draft on June 17, 2007 on the WWE's official website. Kendrick and London won their RAW debut match the following night, defeating The World's Greatest Tag Team on June 18, 2007.
