Buddy Murphy was launched by the WWE final month and has not too long ago given a lot of interviews trying again on his time with the corporate. One of many strangest chapters within the former Cruiserweight Champion’s tenure got here final yr when he wound up in a romantic relationship with Aalyah Mysterio, Rey Mysterio’s 19-year-old daughter. Murphy’s huge drawback with the angle, as was the case with many WWE followers, was the noticeable age hole between the 2. He defined in an interview with Chris Van Vliet this week (h/t WrestlingNews.co), “I wasn’t snug kissing Aalyah. I did that as a result of it was my job and it was going to create extra drama within the story. Initially, there was no kiss scripted. They [the producers] went and so they talked to Vince about one thing. They arrive again and so they pitch it to me however they’re type of like bizarre. Then they are saying ‘…and then you definitely kiss her.’ I begin laughing and go ‘f— off.’ However then they’re like ‘No we’re severe.’ I take a look at the opposite producer and he was like [nods head]. I am like ‘No method! How did you come again with this?'”
“My complete factor was I needed to play it very fastidiously,” he continued. “I stated to them ‘I am not going to specific emotions to her. I am unable to pursue her, she has to pursue me.’ This was due to the age distinction. You do not make it any simpler while you use my birthday as ‘the message.’ So now you have got given them [fans] the knowledge of how previous is he? How previous is she? What? I feel them saying ‘Pleased birthday’ mainly simply outed that. I wasn’t snug with it, however they did not assist with the state of affairs. I am like ‘What does she [Aalyah] give it some thought’ They go ‘She’s cool with it.’ I am like ‘What!’ They went to her first, I assumed she was going to shoot it down. So then I am going ‘What about Rey?’ they are saying ‘They’re okay with it?’ I am like properly if they’re okay with it, I am unable to be the one which goes no matter. I used to be very blunt with them, I am unable to pursue her, if I do, I am a creep. I am a ‘pedo’ as individuals say on the web. If she goes for me, she’s an empowered lady that is aware of what she desires. I feel they bought her on a Hollywood-style kiss. I am not in Hollywood, what’s a Hollywood-style kiss? They clarify the digicam pictures. We’re reside on TV you may’t do these behind the top digicam pictures. There are 8 cameras on you, who is aware of which one they’ll shoot you on. If there is a hole, the entire thing is completed. Seth was nervous about it, as a result of this complete storyline rides on this one kiss. I am uncomfortable, and he or she’s new. We’re on the market and about to chop the promo and I stated to her this must look good. You probably have any second minds, I’m providing you with the inexperienced mild. Do no matter you need, it is 100% you. Do what it’s good to do, this must look good. It seemed nice, the aftermath wasn’t nice for me. However we’re each adults, we’re each appearing, we gave one another a excessive 5 after it and that was it.”
The angle was instantly dropped in November as each Murphy and Aalyah stopped showing on tv Murphy briefly tried to reunite with Rollins earlier within the yr however was promptly shut down. On Monday night time the Australian star had his first post-WWE match confirmed, as he’ll tackle AEW’s Brian Cage for the Battleground Championship Wresting Promotion on Sept. 18 in Philadelphia.
