Buddy Murphy finally spoke about his release on Twitter. The Australian called his WWE tenure a “crazy ride,” and added he put all his efforts in everything he did in the company. He also expressed his displeasure of wanting to wrestle, but was held back. Of course, because creative seemingly had nothing for him.

He further added that he believes he hasn’t reached his peak yet, and the entire wrestling world will know why he’s called the ‘Best Kept Secret.’ Murphy also expressed gratitude for getting the opportunity to work with top talent like Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins and revealed he learnt a lot from them.

Murphy’s last WWE appearance came on the Road to WrestleMania where he faced Cesaro on SmackDown in a bid to reunite as his disciple. However, the ‘Best Kept Secret’ did not appear on SmackDown again. The next thing we heard of him was that he’s now released.

Murphy to AEW?

The 32-year-old is one of the finest wrestlers in the business today. His matches against the likes of Mustafa Ali, Aleister Black, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Cedric Alexander, etc. are all extraordinary. Given his impressive in-ring work backed by decent promo skills, he would be an asset to any promotion.

Buddy Murphy has named AEW World Champion Kenny Omega as his dream opponent. Now that he’s released, it’s likely he could get a chance to get the dream match in AEW. Tony Khan would definitely pull out all the stops for this match to happen.

Although Murphy won’t wrestle under his WWE name, his former ring name Matt Silva has a nice ring to it. Let’s see what the future holds. But one thing is for sure – Matt Silva versus Kenny Omega will happen soon, and the entire pro-wrestling world will rejoice!
