WWE 2K20 will include many of these “WWE Originals” packs. There are four in total, with “Bump in the Night” being the first announced. The other three “WWE Originals” packs will be announced in the coming months.
Buddy Murphy Push Notes
The push of Buddy Murphy was apparently a happy accident. According to Dave Meltzer (h/t WrestlingInc), Murphy was not supposed to be involved in the Roman Reigns attacker storyline. When the forklift attack happened, Murphy happened to be in frame during the shot. Once fans on social media noticed Murphy, they began tweeting photos of him and theorized he was the one who attacked Reigns.
So, how about that…Buddy Murphy wasn't originally supposed to be involved in the Roman Reigns attacker story, but after fans noticed him in the background (even though he wasn't supposed to be in the shot) WWE decided to add him into the mix.https://t.co/ynRPxMcUwz pic.twitter.com/JsZ74Y5fNx

WWE decided to roll with it and add Murphy to the angle. That decision did Murphy wonders, as now he has impressed in his match with Reigns on SmackDown Live. Murphy will now be participating in the King of the Ring tournament, starting next week.
