WWE Cruiserweight Champion; NXT Tag Team Champion
Buddy Murphy: Bio
Go ahead and sleep on Buddy Murphy, and just see what happens.
Capable of executing some of the most picturesque (and high-risk) aerial moves in wrestling, the Australian grappler is no less fearless outside the ring: His past hobbies include bungee jumping, rock climbing and swimming with great whales.
Together with Wesley Blake and Alexa Bliss, Murphy once formed one of NXT’s most dominant units, and his partnership with Blake resulted in a seven-month NXT Tag Team Title reign.
After a smooth transition to singles competition, Murphy proved he has what it takes to make it on his own when he defeated Cedric Alexander to win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia at WWE Super Show-Down.
After moving to SmackDown LIVE thanks to the 2019 Superstar Shake-up, Murphy was seen in the background of some video footage when Roman Reigns was mysteriously attacked, and after being confronted by The Big Dog, "The Best Kept Secret" implicated Erick Rowan. Soon after, Murphy had a pair of instant classics against Reigns and Daniel Bryan, even pinning the latter in an edge-of-your-seat thriller.
Still just getting started on SmackDown, the former Crusierweight Champion is dead set on owning the blue brand following his stellar run on 205 Live.
