Championship Match Added To WWE Survivor Series 2018 PPV
WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view takes place on November 18th in Los Angeles, California.
WWE has announced a new title match to take place at Survivor Series. As you can see below, Buddy Murphy will defend the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Mustafa Ali at the show.
WWE issued the following statement on their WWE Survivor Series match:
At Survivor Series, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy will face his first major challenger – The Heart of WWE 205 Live, Mustafa Ali.
At WWE Super Show-Down Buddy Murphy defied all expectations, winning the WWE Cruiserweight Championship in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia and handing Cedric Alexander his first defeat of 2018. With Alexander not performing to WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick’s standards in the aftermath of his loss, Murphy’s training partner Tony Nese and Ali faced off to determine who would challenge The Juggernaut. Pushing himself to his physical limits, Ali defeated The Premier Athlete and earned the opportunity to challenge for the title.
The WWE Universe is certainly in for a treat, as Ali and Murphy have battled each other before, including when they met in a wild No Disqualification Match that WWE.com ranked as the best bout in the first 100 episodes of WWE 205 Live.
Can The Heart of WWE 205 Live defeat Murphy once again and claim the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, or will Murphy prove he is truly the best Cruiserweight in the world? Find out at WWE Survivor Series on Sunday, Nov. 18, at 7 ET/4 PT, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network
