Buddy Murphy makes history yet again at WWE Super Show-Down

At WWE Super Show-Down, “The Juggernaut” Buddy Murphy was able to end the Age of Alexander, defeating Cedric Alexander for the Cruiserweight Championship in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia.

This title win marked a pretty unique point in WWE history and has forever etched Murphy’s name in the record books, as he is the first Australian wrestler in WWE history to win a singles championship.

Murphy actually already met a first in NXT, becoming the first Australian superstar to hold a WWE title when he captured the NXT Tag Team Titles with Wesley Blake.

Now, with championship gold again around his waist, Buddy Murphy looks to change the landscape of 205 Live. With Cedric Alexander finally vanquished, will there be a new challenger for Murphy, or will the Soul of 205 Live look for retribution?

    Not to mention, it was the first time, in a long time, that a serious Cruiserweight match has been up near the top end of a PPV card. Only the second time this year that the title has been on PPV. It’s usually relegated to the pre-show or the first couple of matches.

    I know, right? I miss the days of the 90’s, when wrestlers were called things like “Brutus Beefcake” or “Scotty Too Hotty”.
