WWE is always criticized for their inability to create new stars on their shows, and their over-reliance on the yesteryear personalities for garnering viewership. However, ever since the draft, WWE has looked to create more stars, especially on the RAW brand, with individuals like Andrade, Aleister Black, Buddy Murphy, Drew McIntyre, Rusev, etc. getting ample screentime to shine.

Out of all these superstars, Black and Murphy are two exceptions, as they aren’t exactly the type of superstars Vince McMahon prefers to push. Black and Murphy have won several matches in the last few months and had a hard-hitting encounter last week at TLC.

Dave Meltzer noted on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Paul Heyman is the reason behind the pushes for the former NXT Champion and the former Cruiserweight Champion.

Meltzer went on to note that the plans are currently to feature Black as a major babyface while Murphy will transcend into the role of a top heel on the red brand. He also noted that although Heyman is pushing for these two superstars, there is a great possibility that Vince McMahon vetoes the decision.

Cedric Alexander was reportedly set to feature in major storylines, but his push came to an abrupt end. Alexander has not won a lot of matches since his storyline with AJ Styles came to an unceremonious end.

“There’s always the chance, no matter what the plan is, that it gets derailed. There’s a pretty high percentage with new stars that things get derailed.”

Black and Murphy will continue their rivalry heading into the final RAW of 2019 next week, when the two deadly knee strikers take on each other in a rematch from TLC. Both the superstars won their respective squash matches on RAW this week.

Black and Murphy are highly talented individuals with great in-ring skills and personalities to back it up. If McMahon doesn’t push them, it will be a waste of two fine young talents.
