Buddy Murphy seemed destined for an incredibly long run with the title but wasn't able to overcome the onslaught of his former friend Tony Nese. On the Grandest Stage of Them All, the Premier Athlete put the Juggernaut away with his patented Running Nese, capturing gold for the first time in his WWE career.
However, Murphy would get a shot at redemption tonight, as he would face the new champion in the main event. Could he reclaim his throne, or would the newest King of the Mountain hold his ground at the top?
