WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick is set to announce a new challenger for WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy on next Wednesday’s episode. As previously reported, that episode will have a “Best Of” theme to it.
Below is a video from a backstage segment between Maverick & Murphy on this week’s show. Murphy talked about his recent wins over Mustafa Ali & Cedric Alexander, then said that he is the best cruiserweight in the world and everyone needs to know it, which is how Drake will help him.
“My next title defense, I want a challenge. I need a challenge. That way, when I win, no one can deny that I am the greatest Cruiserweight Champion in history,” Murphy said.
Maverick then said that he liked that idea and he will put together something for an announcement next week. There is no word yet on who will challenge Murphy, perhaps for a title shot at The 2019 Royal Rumble PPV, but we will keep you updated.
If @WWE_Murphy wants to prove that he is the greatest @WWE #Cruiserweight Champion of all time, he’ll need a little help from @WWEMaverick… #205Live pic.twitter.com/sPNrZM5h73
