Wrong place, right time. One of the biggest stories in WWE at the moment is finding out who has been trying to attack Roman Reigns. Over the last few weeks, Reigns has been attacked by a forklift and a car, but it isn’t clear who has been behind the whole thing. Other wrestlers have been involved in the story, but one of them wasn’t in the original plans.
According to Wrestling Observer Live, Buddy Murphy was not originally scheduled to be involved in the Reigns storyline. Instead, he was only included in it when he was seen in the background of a shot, which was noticed by the fans. Murphy was then added to the story, which included a well received match against Reigns on this week’s SmackDown Live. Reigns’ attacker will allegedly be announced on next week’s show.
Murphy got something out of this. Check out his match with Reigns:
Opinion: I know there are some people in WWE who are accused of never trying to grab the brass ring, but does this really count? Murphy seems to have gotten a push by standing around backstage, but at least he got something out of the whole thing. Murphy’s match with Reigns worked very well and if that gets him somewhere in the long run good for him, as it’s not like he was doing anything else.
How good was Murphy’s match? Who will be Reigns’ attacker? Let us know in the comments below.
