Sep 11, 2018 - by James Walsh

Buddy Murphy recently spoke with news.com.au and spoke about dropping weight and pitching his move to 205 Live from NXT…

On His NXT Run: “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 it 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.”

On Pitching The Move to 205 Live: “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.”

On Facing Cedric Alexander at the WWE Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia: “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.”
