WWE Buddy Murphy recently with Metro to discuss a handful of topics, including his emotional reaction to Edge’s return at the Royal Rumble, and how he felt entering the contest at such a late portion.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On Edge’s retirement in 2011 and return to the ring:
I remember when he retired on television, I was a fan back then. I remembered bawling my eyes out just because of how tragic and unexpected it was. But I’m not gonna lie, I did enjoy coming out at number 30, pulling him out and kneeing him in the face. There was a childhood dream, so to speak, accomplished at that moment.
On his spot in the Royal Rumble:
To be stood besides AOP and Seth is always awesome, to come out at number 30 is even better! Even though I wasn’t in the Rumble, we came out at number 30 and changed the landscape of that Rumble at the end.
Unfortunately it didn’t go our way, but to be able to go out there and make our mark in front of that many people – and of course insert ourselves into a Rumble with the Edges and Randy Ortons, Drew McIntyres, that’s pretty awesome.
