Monday Night Raw is well underway at this point folks, over two hours deep now. And we just got another bout in the saga of Buddy Murphy vs. Aleister Black! I’m Jordan Huie of the Overtimer and I’ll be here with you all night to give you the live recap and results from the show as they come!
Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy have been feuding for some time, in a simple but effective feud in which they simply wish to be the better man in the ring, the tougher and stronger competitor. Black has thus far won the first two matches, but Murphy was nonetheless not ready to give up. The two have been praised on-screen for stealing the show in former matches and quite truthfully as well.
You can see an excerpt of my recap of this match below:
Springboard Moonsault, Murphy kicks him out of the air! Murphy’s Law!! Murphy hooks the arm to keep him from grabbing the bottom rope but he still gets the leg onto it in time! “This is Awesome” again, smattering; I notice the crowd closest to the ring is the loudest here. They’re the ones able to see how hard they’re laying it in. Murphy picks Black up, goes for the Black Mass, Black ducks it, nails it himself! Cover, apparently he just barely kicked out?! Ref says the shoulder barely got up there. Black picks a very dead Murphy up and a second Black Mass finishes him off!
Winner: Aleister Black
Another very competitive match, another hard hitting affair. And another quiet crowd that was eventually won over in the end. Not to mention another win for Aleister. They seem to be running with the idea that Black’s a guy that Buddy just can’t quite beat. By usual logic that means that one day he’s gotta do it, but who knows how long it’ll take at this point?
