WWE has a lot of things in motion at all times. The state of the world also lends itself to unpredictability, but if a WWE Superstar is scheduled to be at work, then they need to be there. That applies even if the company has no plan to use them.
Murphy hasn’t been on television in a very long time, seemingly leaving a romantic angle with Aalyah Mysterio in limbo. Where has he been?
Ringside News has learned that Murphy is still showing up to SmackDown. He’s been backstage for weeks, but he hasn’t been used. There is also no talking about how they will use him.
We discovered this information recently when asking about Bo Dallas’ situation. He is in the same boat. Both Murphy and Bo Dallas are still showing up to WWE television, but they haven’t been given anything to do.
Vince McMahon could always arrange a big angle to use Murphy on television and give him another spotlight. As of this week, it appears that he will be there without anything to do once again. We can only hope that changes.
