Raw Tag Team champion Buddy Murphy is the latest WWE Superstar to lose part of his name.
According to his WWE.com profile, Buddy Murphy will now simply go by Murphy. The name change was first reported by Post Wrestling.
Sources tell us the change was made because the name Buddy didn’t sound like the name of a disciple, so the decision was made to drop it in order for the wrestler to fit with Seth Rollins’ new group.
As you’ll recall, Murphy aligned with Rollins and the Authors of Pain last month and it led to the wrestler capturing the Raw Tag Team titles with “The Monday Night Messiah.”
