Buddy Murphy earns his title opportunity

WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick makes major Cruiserweight Championship announcement: WWE.com Exclusive, May 10, 2018

WWE 205 Live GM Drake Maverick announces that Buddy Murphy will challenge Cedric Alexander for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on the May 29 episode of WWE 205 Live.

Last week, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick revealed that after NXT Superstar Buddy Murphy turned in an impressive performance against Mustafa Ali – coupled with his heated rivalry with WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander – that the Australia-native had earned the opportunity to challenge Alexander for the title on the May 29 episode of WWE 205 Live.

Since making his presence felt in the WWE Cruiserweight division, Murphy has shown his dedication to competing on WWE 205 Live by jumping at every opportunity presented and working hard to maintain the bodyweight necessary to qualify for the Cruiserweight division. Although he missed out on his first opportunity at the Greatest Royal Rumble event due to missing weight, Murphy immediately rebounded and locked his sights right back on Alexander’s coveted championship.

With just two weeks until the highly-anticipated contest, can Cedric maintain the momentum that has brought him unfettered success in recent months, or has Murphy figured out a way to shake The Soul of WWE 205 Live’s confidence?

Don’t miss WWE 205 Live, tonight at 10/9 C on the award-winning WWE Network!
