In recent months, several of WWE's mid-carding wrestlers have been stopped by the federation due to a general lack of plans for them, with some of the stars of the weekly shows seeming irreplaceable the week before, but in a short time have literally disappeared from Raw and Smackdown, without hearing from them for months.
Among the many who have been excluded for one reason or another from the WWE TV screens, we find Murphy, who until a few weeks ago appeared quietly in the rings of Friday Night Smackdown, first in a long feud against the Monday Night Messiah and then against King Corbin, who eventually turned his attention to Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
At the moment, several athletes are said to be quite frustrated with this treatment, such as Bo Dallas, who hasn't been used by WWE for more than a year, but who still stands firm on the WWE main brand roster, albeit unused in its entirety.
Latest update on Murphy's WWE status
Apparently, this difficult situation would be having its first feedback also on a media and social level, with Murphy, one of the unused WWE athletes, who posted a message on his personal Twitter account, in which he made a clear picture of the situation, saying: "3 years ago today I debuted at 205 Live - It rekindled my passion for wrestling after losing it!
What will my 205 be in 2021?" Apparently, the total absence from the WWE TV screens would be making Murphy plunge into a very critical moment in his career, with the decrease in passion and adrenaline that this discipline usually involves fighting week after week, which would obviously be failing for fault of the wrestler's inactivity.
We'll see if in the coming weeks the WWE will come up with something to bring all these unused characters back to the scene or if once again, we will have to see a wave of layoffs or voluntary releases of the athletes who are part of the McMahon-owned federation, as has already happened in the past with the various Cody Rhodes, the Revival, Luke Harper and many others, who have had to seek luck and above all happiness, in other places.
Now it seems Smackdown Superstar Murphy did not take too kindly to all the veterans being included in the match. He seemingly took a shot at the company by stating the fact that there were no younger talents in the Elimination Chamber match.
Murphy then tagged several WWE Superstars such as Mustafa Ali, Aleister Black, Cedric Alexander, Kalisto, Apollo Crews, Chad Gable, Ricochet, Humberto Carillo, Angel Garza, and Drew Gulak.
