For the past few, WWE has been releasing several employees including WWE Superstars, beginning with the release of Superstars such as Chelsea Green and Mickie James in April.

Last month, WWE held yet another round of cuts from the company and it included several big names. Among them include the likes of Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy.

While speaking to Fightful, Buddy Murphy talked about his WWE release. Murphy was asked if WWE’s shoddy booking for him affected his love for professional wrestling. Murphy stated that it definitely affected his love for the business.

“Absolutely (it affected my love for wrestling). My career has always been up and down. Crazy good, disappear, good, disappear. I know that it was on a downward spiral. From the Aleister stuff to the Seth stuff. Obviously, the pandemic brought it down a little and then losing AOP and Theory, who were part of the group, I was the lone survivor.


“Then it started to come back up when me and Aalyah became a thing and the main part of the story because it dragged out for so long and we were the new blood in it. Then it went to me disappearing, like that. Snap your fingers and I disappeared.”

Buddy Murphy had also previously noted the company was rubbing his nose in it when he was forced to attend WWE tapings but not compete. Buddy Murphy is already working very hard after his WWE release last month and hinted at facing Aleister Black in AEW. We certainly wonder if he will be able to square off against Aleister Black soon enough as fans would love that.
