Buddy Murphy crashes Cedric Alexander’s Championship Celebration
WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick was beaming following the success of the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament and the final battle between Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali at WrestleMania. As Alexander, the new champion, entered the ring to “you deserve it” chants from the WWE Universe, he delivered a heartfelt message of gratitude to them for believing in him since the Cruiserweight Classic.
As he thanked the WWE Universe, his WrestleMania opponent Mustafa Ali made his way to the ring, still visibly disappointed following his defeat.
Confronting his friend, Ali delivered his own heartfelt message to Alexander, telling him that he earned the coveted title. With chants of “one more match” ringing throughout The Smoothie King Center, The Heart of WWE 205 Live then reminded his friend that he was still in line for another opportunity.
Suddenly, Buddy Murphy’s music hit, and Ali, Maverick and Alexander diverted their attention to the entrance ramp. With the champion distracted, Murphy snuck in the ring from behind and dropped Alexander with Murphy’s Law, making his own championship aspirations perfectly clear.
