He’s new. There have been a lot of movements around the wrestling world, with several prominent wrestlers jumping from one promotion to another. That can make for some very interesting moments as you don’t know when someone is going to show up. It is especially fun when you might get to see someone reach a new level of potential, which might be the case again this week.
This week on AEW Dynamite, Buddy Matthews made his debut in an attack on Pac and Penta Obscura. Matthews helped the Kings of the Black throne attack Pac and Obscura, seemingly joining the House of Black in the process. Matthews is formerly known as Buddy Murphy in WWE, where he is a former Cruiserweight Champion. Black and Murphy feuded during their time together in WWE, which was referenced last week during a House of Black vignette. The vignette featured a knock on Black’s door, which is how Matthews started his feud with Black in WWE.
Opinion: I don’t think this is much of a surprise, especially after the knocking video last week, but at the end of the day, it is cool to see Murphy getting a chance on the main stage. Matthews is someone who only had a few shots in WWE but he was never given a real chance to show what he could do. I could go for seeing this version of him getting a chance and maybe now it works.
What do you think of Matthews? How will he do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
