Buddy Murphy was out to prove to his on-again, off-again tag team partner Wesley Blake and the rest of the NXT Universe that he can hold his own as a singles competitor, and he didn’t disappoint. Unfortunately, despite Murphy’s impressive showing, it was Kota Ibushi’s time to shine.

The Cruiserweight Classic competitor —who is on his way to the second round of the groundbreaking tournament — flashed some serious skills in his NXT debut. After trading a series of vicious kicks with the Australian Superstar, “Golden Star” nailed a sit-out powerbomb for the win.
