Murphy On Influence Of Seth Rollins, Feud With Roman Reigns

WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Murphy has spoken about how his tag partner and “messiah” Seth Rollins has influenced him beyond the squared circle.

Speaking with the Express, here’s what the Aussie had to say:

“It’s awesome to be side by side with Seth. I feel like a mini Seth Rollins at the moment. I pick his brain every day learning inside and outside of the ring. I really respect what Seth has done outside of the ring. Being pulled to 150 different directions at the same time, you know it can be hectic and stressful. And in the ring, it’s awesome being with the former Universal Champion, I look up to him. Everything that you see on television it’s pretty real. He’s my messiah and I’m a follower, I follow his lead inside and outside of the ring I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily a bad thing like some people would say, I think he’s actually quite a good role model.”

Murphy also discussed his rivalry with Roman Reigns that helped him burst onto the scene after being moved away from 205 Live:

“Roman is probably the best of the best. It was awesome to get in there in a time when I was on SmackDown and thrown into the deep end, so to speak. I was out there to make a statement and prove that I could go with the best and I felt like that night in Canada we made magic. It was one of those things where I couldn’t really look back at it and say that I would change anything or really critique it that much. I thought for where we were and the time we had, it was perfect.”
