News on Buddy Murphy's Involvement In Roman Reigns Mystery Attacker Storyline

News on Buddy Murphy's Involvement In Roman Reigns Mystery Attacker Storyline
The current WWE SmackDown storyline and push for Buddy Murphy was not planned.


We noted a few weeks back how Murphy could be seen in the background of a shot from the attempted attack on Roman Reigns, which was the beginning of the Reigns mystery attacker storyline on SmackDown. This led to fans speculating on Murphy possibly being the forklift driver that tried to attack Reigns. It was a fan that originally zoomed in and posted a screenshot of Murphy walking in the background of the shot, which began the speculation.

Murphy was not supposed to be in the background of that angle on SmackDown. Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live today that Murphy was accidentally in the video, and wasn't even supposed to be there. WWE filmed the angle, saw Murphy's appearance and the speculation that came with it online, and then decided that they might as well run with it. Alvarez noted that this is how Murphy ended up being pushed in a main event storyline with Reigns, Daniel Bryan and Rowan.

Murphy took to Twitter this afternoon and reacted to the buzz coming out of last night's SmackDown loss to Reigns, which was actually his first SmackDown TV match since coming to the blue brand in the Superstar Shakeup.

He wrote, "The whole world knows my name..."
