WWE now billing Buddy Murphy as 'Murphy'

One-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions has undergone a slight name change.

Post Wrestling reported today that Buddy Murphy will now be promoted as just "Murphy" by WWE. The name change has also been confirmed on WWE.com.

Post Wrestling wrote that they "learned of the alteration through several sources in the company that were notified of the change moving forward."

After aligning with Seth Rollins & AOP last month, Murphy & Rollins won the Raw Tag Team titles by defeating The Viking Raiders the next week.

Murphy joined the Raw roster in October's WWE Draft. In an interview with Talksport that was published this week, Murphy spoke about working with Paul Heyman on Raw: "Paul has been awesome to work with. He has a lot of belief in me and I don’t want to let him down. The Aleister Black performances and what not, I want the ball and I want to run with it. I believe -- and Paul believes -- I can be a mega star for this company.

"Once that bell rings, I’ve got that down pat, now I just need a story to sink my teeth into and maybe being Seth’s disciple is it. Paul has been a great influence and he’s been pointing me in the direction and as long as I can keep Paul and Vince [McMahon happy], then I’m happy."
