Ali def. Buddy Murphy in the first round of the King of the Ring Tournament
The two former rivals went absolutely berserk, with such highlights as a dazzling senton dive from Murphy and Ali connecting with an unreal reverse ‘rana. In the critical moments though, Ali weathered an absolute onslaught from Buddy, finding the space to connect with one of the most amazing DDTs you’ll ever see into a dazzling 450 splash, giving Ali one of the biggest wins of his life.
WWE’s Best Kept Secret showed respect where it was due after the thriller, raising Ali’s hand in victory.
