WWE 205 Live star Buddy Murphy was recently interviewed by news.com.au to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Murphy discussed falling to the sidelines in NXT, pitching the move to 205 Live, and facing Cedric Alexander at the WWE Super Show-Down. Here are the highlights:
Dropping to the sidelines in NXT:
“I was obviously in NXT for a while and had some success, but then I found myself lurking in the shadows and not really doing much. I took in upon myself to create an opportunity. I dropped about 25 pounds, I got an opportunity, I took it and now I’m trying to create a brand.”
Pitching 205 Live move:
“I always watched 205 Live on the sidelines. It’s more my style, I like the quick and innovative moves. I just thought the brand was going to thrive and I wanted to be a part of it. I pitched the move [to WWE] and I kind of took it upon myself. When I first said it they said no, but I dropped the weight myself and gave them no excuse.”
Going against Cedric Alexander at the WWE Super Show-Down:
“Getting the chance to wrestle in the middle of [Melbourne Cricket Ground], doing what I do, in my home city – that’s WrestleMania for me. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
