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.

Steve Austin And More WWE Stars Comment On Shocking Conor McGregor UFC 229 Loss And Chaotic Aftermath

Tonight’s UFC 229 main event featuring Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov appeared to take a page right from the WWE playbook, as the fight had two shocking endings.
The betting underdog in the bout, but popular fan pick, Conor McGregor, lost the fight via submission via a rear-naked choke at 3:03 of round four, but the action did not stop there as a brawl broke out in the cage following the fight when Zubaira Tukhugov hopped the cage and began to assault Conor McGregor. The mayhem did not stop there, however, as Nurmagomedov also jumped the cage and attacked McGregor’s camp.

Per MMAFighting.com, Nurmagomedov won the first two rounds of the fight before Conor McGregor won the third round by a score of 10-9. The bout and its subsequent aftermath has drawn the ire of MMA fans, as the ensuing chaos following the fight was viewed by most as completely unprofessional and a poor look for both Mixed Martial Arts and UFC.
Professional wrestling fans, on the other hand, seemed to eat up every bit of what is being labeled as “sports entertainment” in a UFC Octagon, with fans going so far as to say the fight was a work, and potentially “booked” in a way similar to a pro wrestling match.
It did not take long for the stars of the wrestling world to react to the fight and the post-match pandemonium, as several names including former WWE star Ted DiBiase, Jr, along with WWE Hall of Famers Booker T and Steve Austin, as well as current Raw GM Baron Corbin all took to Twitter to react to the fight.

I love Professional Wrestling.

Heading into tonight’s fight, Khabib Nurmagomedov was 26-0 in UFC, and keeps his undefeated streak alive with his dismantling of Conor McGregor. “The Notorious” McGregor was 9-1 in his career in UFC main events, and as a result of tonight’s loss drops to 9-2 in headlining fights.
The repercussions of tonight’s post-fight brawl have yet to be revealed, but it’s almost certain UFC fans will have more to look forward to in the storied Nurmagomedov and McGregor rivalry.
