WWE 205 Live star Buddy Murphy recently spoke with FOX Sports Australia, and below are some interview highlights.

On going from being an NXT Tag Team Champion to sitting on the sidelines:

“Sitting on the sidelines for that long, it got under my skin a lot because I had so much to offer,” Murphy told Foxsports.com.au.

“I felt like the world hadn’t even seen a glimpse of what I’m able to do.

“Being in a tag team, it’s on myself but we were the champs and we won the championships early in our careers and that kind of got to our heads a little bit.

“We went out there and win, lose or draw we didn’t care and once we lost them and couldn’t get a win, we slowly got pushed down the ladder. Where do you go from there? I didn’t have anything to grab onto.

On seizing the opportunity to compete on WWE 205 Live and cutting weight for the roster:

“Dropping 25 pounds was something I was unsure about,” he said.

“It seemed like a pointless adventure in a way. I was sitting in the dark in NXT. I’d lost the championships, our team disbanded, the last time I was on television was when NXT was in Melbourne (mid last year), that was the last time I was seen. I was doing NXT live events and I was stealing the show every night. I felt like I was under-utilised and overlooked. Once that tournament was announced, I thought what better platform?

“I saw that as the opportunity. I was lucky enough to steal one of the 16-man slots.”
