In the middle of his run as one-half of the Raw tag champions, Buddy Murphy will now be promoted as just ‘Murphy’.
POST Wrestling learned of the alteration through several sources in the company that were notified of the change moving forward.
Murphy, real name Matthew Adams, has been wrestling as Buddy Murphy since entering NXT in 2013 where he won the tag titles with Wesley Blake. In 2018, Murphy was brought up to 205 Live where he became Cruiserweight champion.
Last year, he was drafted to Raw and has been part of Seth Rollins’ faction alongside AOP. Murphy and Rollins recently won the Raw tag titles from the Viking Raiders.
His WWE profile was updated to reflect the change.
