• Former RAW Tag Team Champion Could Be Joining AEW Soon
According to Fightful Select, former RAW Tag Team Champion Buddy Murphy (now known as Buddy Matthews) could be on his way to AEW soon:
“Matthews has been a free agent since about September, and told Fightful he wasn’t quite sure of where he’d land. He’s worked a plethora of indies, as well as dates for MLW and NJPW, but we haven’t heard details on him signing anywhere.
Sources within AEW in recent weeks have indicated that there was growing interest and rumblings about Matthews joining the company in some capacity, with some even heard that there were creative pitches made, with another source going as far as to say that creative is already decided. We’ve not confirmed the latter.”
Buddy Murphy was released from WWE in June 2021. In his last WWE match, he competed in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on the WrestleMania edition of SmackDown in April 2021, which he lost.
Apart from the RAW Tag Team Championship, he also held the NXT Tag Team Championship and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
