In a recent interview conducted by Chris Van Vliet, former WWE star Buddy Murphy revealed a key component to his storyline involving the Mysterio family, one of the last WWE storylines that Murphy would be in. According to Murphy, he did not feel comfortable kissing Aalyah Mysterio, only went along with it because it was his job and because Rey had no issue with it. Murphy would also reveal that the idea of the kiss itself came from WWE chairman Vince McMahon. Credit to Ringside News for the transcription. Vince McMahon called out this Edge ‘ripoff’ in WWE.
“I wasn’t comfortable kissing Aalyah. I did that because it was my job and it was gonna create more drama in the story. Originally, there was no kiss scripted and they went to talk about Vince about something and they came back and I’m sitting there and pitching it to me, and it was kinda like weird, but then they’re like ‘and then you kiss her.’ I thought they were joking. I look at the producers and they were serious and I’m like, ‘no way, how did you come back with this?!’ Because my whole thing was that I had to play it very, very carefully, especially the timing of the situation, right?”
“I said to them that I’m not going to express feelings for her, right? I can’t pursue her, she has to pursue me, because of the age difference you don’t make it any easier when you use my birthday in the message.” Roman Reign’s bold message to Vince McMahon was also leaked recently.
“Now you’ve given people my information and people will look it up and go ‘how old is he? How hold is she?’ What?! Now you’ve given them the bad — I think them saying ‘happy birthday, by the way’ brought attention to that, basically outed that, so you know what I mean, like I wasn’t comfortable with it.”
“They didn’t help the situation by saying my birthday. I’m just kinda like ‘what does she think about this?’ They’re like, ‘she’s cool’ I’m like ‘WHAT?!’ Because I thought they were going to shoot it down. I’m like, ‘what about Rey?’ They’re like, ‘they’re okay with it.’” This AEW female star recently leaked this sad Vince McMahon claim.
