Seth Rollins and Murphy went back inside the ring later in the night. The Monday Night Messiah demanded that Murphy apologize to him for his actions. It reached a point when Rollins claimed that he made Murphy what he is today and can just so easily destroy him.

That’s where Seth Rollins crossed the line. Instead of apologizing, Murphy caught Rollins off-guard and viciously attacked him. Rollins didn’t hold back either and retaliated with all his might. Post that, Murphy attacked Seth Rollins with the kendo stick, beating him black and blue.

The Monday Night Messiah immediately began apologizing. In fact, he begged Aaliyah Mysterio to ask Murphy to not attack him further. Just when Murphy let his guard down, Rollins took over and beat him up with the same kendo stick. Additionally, Seth Rollins brought a chair to the ring, but by then, Aaliyah Mysterio had come to Murphy’s rescue. Rollins walked away with a sly smile.

Following this, the entire Mysterio family came to the ring, taken aback by Aaliyah’s reaction. They coaxed her backstage while Seth Rollins watched on the television. Buddy Murphy was left in the ring, fluttering in pain.

Seth Rollins-Buddy Murphy alliance may have met its end

There is no doubt now that WWE is capitalizing on the romantic angle between Murphy and Aaliyah. While yes, the company has received backlash from the audience due to the age difference between the two, WWE has not backed away from this angle.
