WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy was recently interviewed on Lilian Garcia’s podcast, “Chasing Glory.” Murphy discussed Alexa Bliss’ career since being called up to the main roster and maintaining their relationship despite their conflicting schedules. Here are the highlights:
Alexa Bliss’ career since being called up to the main roster: “[Blake’s] doing his thing, but it’s funny how it all happens,” Murphy said. “It’s not a line where you take your number and you wait until your number [is called], you kinda have to figure out your way through the maze, in a way. And I’ve told him this. I’ve told several people this, it’s kinda like my little formula to it.
“But going back to the tag team, we had something really good with the three of us, and then she left, and then me and Blake lost the titles, and then from there, we just became those guys that make everyone else look really good. Lex, in a way – I’m not gonna say we were holding her down, but look what she’s doing now.
“Like, we helped her get there but I’m glad she didn’t stay with us, because then we would of [held her down]. Her talent would have gone it through anyway. Everything happens for a reason. She’s killing it, I’ve got so much of her merch.”
Maintaining their relationship despite their conflicting schedules: “Yeah, complete opposite schedules,” Murphy said. “But it’s one of those things where you just kind of, to me, that’s how the cards are being dealt for now. I look at it, well, it’s only for now. So I can look at it like that, but, ya know, I support her 110%, I watch her stuff. I send her my promos. She’s the one that helped me how to speak, she’s taught me heaps. Like, I try to help her in the ring and she helps me with the character stuff.”
