– It was reported Sunday that a video had surfaced on YouTube from WWE’s “Presentations Skills” class at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where developmental wrestler Buddy Murphy made a disturbing reference to children being murdered. The controversial video quickly drew the attention of WWE as they had it removed from the video-sharing website within three hours of the report through a copyright claim.
Touting his multiple personalities, Murphy had said, “See that guy walks through the door, he’s upstairs, doesn’t have a smile on his face, that’s me too. The guy that sits in the locker room and stares a hole down the wall, and you’re wondering what he’s thinking, if he’s going to go home and murder my kids, that’s me too.”
“But, this is what you want. This is what you want. Well just remember this; you might get what you want, but you don’t always get who you want.”
