Following last week’s beating at the hands of Roman Reigns,
Buddy Murphy has taken to Twitter to issue a challenge to WWE’s resident *start
Michael Cole voice* Big Dog *end Michael Cole voice* for this week’s SmackDown
If you remember, the closing moments of last week’s TV
offering for the WWE’s blue brand saw Roman Reigns quizzing Murphy on what he
knew about the recent spate of attempted murder that Roman has been faced with.
The former NXT Tag Team Champion and Cruiserweight Champion
eventually spouted out Rowan’s name after Reigns had whooped Buddy across the locker
Last night’s SummerSlam pre-show saw this angle furthered,
with Rowan attacking Murphy during the Australian’s match against Apollo Crews.
Meanwhile, Daniel Bryan ominously watched on from a backstage monitor.
Given how Roman Reigns never backs down from a fight, it’s seems
a given that we’ll get Reigns vs. Murphy on SmackDown this week. And while it’s
great to finally see Buddy Murphy being used on main roster TV, don’t rule out
some sort of shenanigans from D-Bry and Rowan as this storyline continues to
play out towards what many are predicting will be a multi-month feud between Bryan and Reigns.
