During the interview, he discussed finding his way over to the Raw brand, which sees Paul Heyman serves as the Executive Director. This is essentially the head of the creative team but Vince McMahon still has the final say of what is presented on Monday Night Raw.
After being lost after dropping the Cruiserweight Title, Murphy found himself on the Raw brand.
It’s been reported that Heyman is high on Murphy, which has been shown on television as he’s been pushed and is now apart of the heel group alongside fellow Raw Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins and AOP.
According to Murphy, Heyman sees him as a good fit for the brand and potentially the next face of it.
“Working with Paul is awesome,” Murphy said. “Paul, during my NXT days where we originally met, gave me some nice words. Then I was drafted to 205 Live then to Smackdown and I kind of found myself a little bit lost on Smackdown with no real direction and Paul decided I would be a good fit for his brand, the next face of Raw.”
Murphy continued to talk about it being cool to be able to pick Heyman’s brain which he called a great experience and being lucky to be drafted to the brand.
