Buddy Murphy was released from WWE back in June along with several other names. His 90 day-non compete clause expires at the beginning of September, but he also has a lot of interest from other companies.
AEW and Impact Wrestling are currently both looking to possibly sign Buddy Murphy to a deal. Murphy has been keeping active on social media and has posted a series of teaser videos over the last few months.
Today he posted the last video in that series and revealed his new ring name in the process.
He revealed that his new ring name is Buddy Matthews and that he’s finally free after being in a mental institution for over 8 years.
We’ll have to see where Matthews shows up next, but any promotion that gets him with be getting a guy that can easily be a top star.
You can check out the videos below. Let us know what you think about them at The Ringside Roster in the comments.
