NXT North American Champion was able to defeat Buddy Murphy on NXT last night. Buddy Murphy is now part of Smackdown. He was at one time a 205 Live superstar. This match was a result of the shots that Dream took at Murphy after Murphy lost the WWE Cruiserweight Title.
Murphy lost the Cruiserweight title to Tony Nese at this year’s WrestleMania event. Dream’s match with Murphy was his second title defense on TV. He was able to retain his title at “Takeover: New York” by defeating Matt Riddle.
The match took place earlier this month. Cathy Kelley interviewed Dream about if he had any regret about mocking Murphy about losing the Cruiserweight title. "Regret? Regret isn't for a man like The Dream," Velveteen said.
"The Dream represents North America because The Dream is your NXT North American Champion. Could the Statue of Dream really regret anything? Do the great people and ancestors of this country regret the struggle that it took to get them where they stand today? And the last time The Dream checked, he stands here NXT North American Champion.
So, regret... The Dream has none. “ “You know who do and who might and who will have regrets? Men like Buddy Murphy, men like Matt Riddle, men like that call The Dream's name without reason. You know who you are.
You know who you are. Anymore questions for the NXT North American Champion? Nope. Well, just like this interview, Dream over."
