Two weeks ago on Friday Night SmackDown, it was revealed that Murphy and Aalyah Mysterio are a couple, and Seth Rollins offered to marry them.
It seemed as if The Monday Night Messiah was manipulating everything but during a backstage segment this past Friday, it was implied that Murphy is the one manipulating the former Universal Champion.
The backstory to the on-going storyline is that neither Rey Mysterio nor Dominik trusts the Murphy-Rollins duo.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted the similarities to a famous angle that took place in WCW back in the day.
Konnan, the then top heel, was to get married to marry Stacy Colon, the sister of Eddie (Primo) and Carly (Carlito) and daughter of Carlos Colon.
Konnan asked to marry Stacy and the Colon family eventually accepted him. Soon after, Konnan turned on Stacy to reveal that he was manipulating the situation right from the very beginning.
While this may not be how the Murphy-Aalyah storyline develops, it’s reported that Rey has tremendous input with this angle. It won’t be wrong to assume that Mr. 619 has gotten some ideas from his dearest pal Konnan.
Moreover, Vince McMahon’s love for wedding segments could essentially mean that a marriage angle between Murphy and Aalyah might be on the cards.
