Buddy Murphy recently spoke with the Metro Star out of the United Kingdom about his performance during the Men's Royal Rumble Match at the 2020 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
During the interview, the lifelong WWE fan spoke about it being a dream come true to perform alongside the returning WWE Hall Of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland after he returned as a surprise entrant in the match.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On it being a childhood dream to fight with Edge in this year's Royal Rumble match during his surprise return: "I remember when he retired on television, I was a fan back then. I remembered bawling my eyes out just because of how tragic and unexpected it was. But I'm not gonna lie, I did enjoy coming out at number 30, pulling him out and kneeing him in the face. There was a childhood dream, so to speak, accomplished at that moment."
On not having an actual spot in the 30-man bout, but making a big impact when coming out as part of the entourage that accompanied the 30th and final entrant, Seth Rollins: "It was awesome, anytime you can be in a building with 40,000 people is always good – especially when they're either booing or cheering you. To be stood besides AOP and Seth is always awesome, to come out at number 30 is even better! Even though I wasn't in the Rumble, we came out at number 30 and changed the landscape of that Rumble at the end. Unfortunately it didn't go our way, but to be able to go out there and make our mark in front of that many people – and of course insert ourselves into a Rumble with the Edges and Randy Ortons, Drew McIntyres, that's pretty awesome."
