Buddy Matthews made his long-anticipated debut for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling on a recent episode of Wednesday night Dynamite as the newest member of the House of Black. It turns out that the former Buddy Murphy had a lot of interest.

According to Fightful Select, Matthews had been in discussion with the Jacksonville-based promotion as far back as last fall. The former Buddy Murphy was released from his WWE contract in July 2021. Impact Wrestling also wanted him.

“In addition to working for Major League Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling, there were overtures on behalf of IMPACT Wrestling to bring him in that didn’t end up happening.

We’ll have to see what’s next for Buddy Matthews, but he is certainly off to a great start in AEW. The House of Black will also see him in great company.
