Murphy is attempting to find his way to having a spot on WWE television again. Earlier this month, he took to Instagram to try to give a storyline reason for no longer being with Mysterio Family.
Murphy had been paired with Seth Rollins but turned babyface to align himself with the Mysterio family after starting up an on-screen relationship with Rey Mysterio's daughter, Aalyah. Eventually, the pair had been pulled from TV.
At the time, he wrote, "Let's point out the obvious! The Mysterio's used me! I never needed them! I'm beyond one of the most talent in-ring performers on the planet! Aalyah used me to be on tv and advance an acting career. Dominik used me so he had a reason to stand ringside. Rey was jealous that I became the new face of the cruiserweight and he was left out of the discussion. They took what they wanted then they left me in the shadows! Sounds like my time in NXT."
Dave Meltzer noted during today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE told Murphy to take down the post.
“Buddy Murphy, I guess did an Instagram post trying to shoot his own angle with the Mysterios. He was ordered to delete it and so he did.”
Meltzer brought up Murphy’s recent storyline that was dropped where he tried to reunite with Rollins, but Rollins ignored it, and then he lost to Cesaro. Since then, he hasn’t done anything.
“Yeah, that was another thing they changed. A storyline that changed for no reason and I guess he decided to come up with a reason to end it and turn heel and they didn’t want him shooting his own angle on Instagram.”
