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 Chris Van Vliet, Buddy Murphy talked about his time in 205 Live and then transitioning to Friday Night Smackdown, where he had nothing to do for several months.

Buddy Murphy then added that Paul Heyman advocating for him when he was going to take over Monday Night RAW might have worked against him in the end.

“I can’t be more appreciative of my time in 205 Live. It was fun, I was creative, I was having great matches. We felt like we had a little bit of pull and we could suggest stuff and it would be considered. It was an awesome group of guys, we all traveled together. I win the title, do some great stuff, go to WrestleMania, lose it, and then I get drafted to SmackDown. I’m like this is it! But then I don’t do anything for 4 to 5 months. Then I just so happen to accidentally be in the background of a Roman shot, which gave me a spotlight and had the internet talking. When the internet talks they [WWE] can shy away from it.

But luckily in my case, they brought attention to it. Then I had this killer match with Roman and the week after I had this killer match with Bryan. Then I was in the King of the Ring against Ali. 3 weeks in a row I have killer matches, but then I’m just dropped. I didn’t understand it.

I was in talks with Heyman, and he was going to take over RAW. I assumed that he had spoken up and said he wanted me, and the people of SmackDown didn’t want to use me. They didn’t want to highlight someone who is going to Mondays. They say that if Paul wants to advocate for you, it can work for you or against you. Maybe it worked against me, but I felt like I was delivering. Did I lose out or did you?”

Buddy Murphy is already working very hard after his WWE release last month and his first match since his WWE release has already been set. We will have to see what Murphy will do next.
