It is being reported by Fightful.com that there has been growing interest and rumblings in recent weeks about former WWE star Buddy Matthews aka Buddy Murphy joining AEW. Several AEW wrestlers have allegedly been told that there has been a working plan to bring Matthews in since January. Matthews was released from WWE back in June of 2021.
In addition to Matthews, AEW is reportedly interested in former MLW tag team Violence is Forever (Dominic Garrini & Kevin Ku) and Fightful notes that the duo are going to backstage at this week’s AEW television tapings.
Matthews has been active since his WWE departure and has worked for various promotions such as MLW and NJPW.
