Velveteen Dream defends North American Title against returning Buddy Murphy
Buddy Murphy lost the Cruiserweight Championship to Tony Nese at WrestleMania, but The Unstoppable’s waist might not be bare for much longer, as he will challenge NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream on NXT.
The title duel comes on the heels of Velveteen Dream taunting Murphy over his loss at The Show of Shows. In a pair of videos posted to Twitter, The Dream openly mocked the 205 Live Superstar for his defeat, chalking it up as the “biggest L of WrestleMania Weekend.”
As if winning the North American crown wasn’t already motivation enough, Dream’s comments give Murphy even more reason to come out swinging. Conversely, it could all be part of Dream’s mind games; might Murphy play right into the sartorial Superstar’s hands?
