Buddy Murphy: Winning The Cruiserweight Title In Australia Was Bigger Than WrestleMania

Buddy Murphy talks his top moment in wrestling. 

On Oct. 6, 2018 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Buddy Murphy entered Melbourne Cricket Ground, a stadium packed with 70,000 people from his home country and walked out the WWE Cruiserweight Champion after defeating Cedric Alexander. In an interview with SEN 116, Murphy discussed how important that moment was for him.

"As a kid I always watched the WWE, and always dreamt of being a WWE Superstar so to go full circle and be a superstar and be in the WWE and win a championship in my home town of Melbourne - it doesn't get much bigger than that for me," said Murphy. "I've wrestled at WrestleMania but winning that Cruiserweight Championship in front of my friends and family, it doesn't get any bigger than that!"

Murphy held the Cruiserweight Title for six months before losing the belt to Tony Nese at WrestleMania 35. 

At the WWE Superstar Shake-Up in April, Murphy was moved off 205 Live and onto WWE SmackDown. However, he has yet to debut on television, only appearing in a YouTube segment.
