WWE News: Buddy Murphy Taking Hiatus From TV, Raw Viewership Hits New High, Steve Austin On KO Using The Stunner

WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy has announced on social media that he will be taking a “well deserved vacation”, and subsequently will be off WWE TV for the next several weeks.
“I would like to officially announce that I will not be on 205 Live for the foreseeable future,” Murphy announced on Twitter.

It appears as if right now might be a good time for Murphy to take a break from action, as 205 Live just announced the “Buddy Murphy Classic” to determine who will next challenge the Champion for his Cruiserweight Title. Murphy’s return to TV has yet to be announced, and it’s worth noting he will not be vacating the Title while on vacation.

Raw Viewership Hits Another New High
As noted, viewership for last week’s episodes of Raw and Smackdown Live, which followed the Elimination Chamber PPV, saw both brands bring in the highest amount of viewers for their respective shows so far in 2019.
According to ShowBuzz Daily, this week’s episode of Smackdown saw a decrease in viewership from last week, despite the surprise return of Kevin Owens. This week’s show averaged 2.150 million viewers, which is down from last week’s 2.269 million viewership average.

Raw, on the other hand, took in the highest amount of viewers since the post-SummerSlam episode of the show back in 2018, averaging 2.922 million viewers for a show which featured the advertised return of Roman Reigns.
The first hour of Raw this week actually took in over 3 million viewers for the second straight week, averaging 3.167 million.
Steve Austin On Kevin Owens Using The Stunner
As noted, following his return to television, Kevin Owens will now be using the Stone Cold Stunner as his finishing move going forward. It’s worth noting that Owens will not be dropping the pop-up power bomb, but will be adding the Stunner to his offense as WWE feels it will help KO get over more as a babyface since the move is tied to legendary WWE babyface Steve Austin.
The Texas Rattlesnake actually commented on Kevin Owens using The Stunner, as seen in the Tweet below.

Highly effective. When executed properly the results are complete devastation. RT @briantheguppie: 1998

It looks like Austin is a fan of the former Universal Champion using his signature finishing move, and Kevin Owens has noted in the past that he has had discussions with Austin about using the move, and Austin has always given his blessing.

WWE 'Super Show-Down' Recap: Big Title Change, New #1 Contender, Undertaker vs HHH, Cena Addresses His Future

Earlier today, WWE aired its first-ever Super Show-Down PPV live from The Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia.
The event saw 70,309 pack into the MCG for a day of action which featured AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe, The Undertaker vs Triple H, The Shield vs Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre, and more. Below is a recap of the big event including highlight clips.
-Buddy Murphy won his first singles title in WWE when he defeated Cedric Alexander to become the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
-John Cena returned to the ring and teamed up with Bobby Lashley to defeat the team of Kevin Owens and Elias. After the match, Cena cut an emotional return promo in front of the live crowd, saying that while he is uncertain of his future in WWE, as his life is changing, the company will always be his home. Cena will be returning to China for two more months following Super Show-Down to complete work on his new movie Project X.

After HBK hit The Dead Man with not one, but two Sweet Chin Music Superkicks, it looks like the rumored HBK vs Undertaker match could become a reality. After the match, Undertaker got a modicum of revenge as he chokeslammed Michaels through the announce table following a celebration by all four men.
-Ronda Rousey and The Bella Twins defeated The Riott Squad, and Rousey will next defend her WWE Raw Women’s Title at Evolution later this month.
