While Black was given a number of squash matches, Murphy had mixed results against some mid-card talents. However, this is all going to change soon as WWE are quite interested in both the superstars and they can be in line for a huge push in 2020.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman sees both as big attractions. The current idea is for Murphy to play a strong heel with Black countering as a proper babyface.

Aleister Black has shown that he is adept at every aspect of professional wrestling. Black is a great wrestler with an intriguing character who enthralls the WWE Universe whenever he enters the arena.

Murphy has also been a long time worker in WWE and his nickname ‘The Best Kept Secret’ actually suits him as not many people are aware of his immense talent. He has produced quality matches for a number of brands and if WWE eventually give him a push, he can be a top heel for RAW.
