Grayson Waller Confirms Injury Keeping Him Out Of WWE Action

Few WWE NXT stars in recent years have flown onto the scene with the physical and verbal prowess of Grayson Waller. The former Australian reality star turned pro wrestler quickly made enemies with the audience at the WWE Performance Center, and went on to become one of the top heels for the black and gold brand. Now, following the WWE Draft, Waller is bringing his brand of braggadocious charisma with him to Friday Night Smackdown.

Interestingly, since coming to WWE’s main roster, fans have not been treated to Waller in action yet. In a new video released on Twitter, Waller explained why he hasn’t been wrestling and has primarily been stuck behind a microphone.

“In my last match on NXT against Carmelo Hayes, I broke my leg, a clean break of the fibula. But because I’m a straight-up gangster for Southwestern Sydney, I kept going, and I was moments away from becoming NXT champion. Fast forward two weeks, I hobble on crutches into the WWE Draft, and Smackdown, with the steal of the entire Draft, chooses Grayson Waller despite the fact that I couldn’t wrestle, I could barely even walk.

“The reality is Grayson Waller on one leg has more value than 99% of wrestlers with two. So what did I do? Week after week on Fox, I entertain millions with the Grayson Waller Effect, the hottest talk show in all the pro wrestling, rubbing shoulders with the biggest stars in the game. AJ Styles, Charlotte Flair, Asuka, the next Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly, and this Friday on Fox, I have the biggest star in the entire industry, Logan Paul.

“But let’s stop talking about the talk show for a bit because I keep seeing what everyone is saying online. Am I just a talk show host now? If I was, I guarantee I’d be the greatest talk show host in the history of this company. But as good as I am on The Grayson Waller Effect, as good as I am on the microphone, I’m better in the ring. So the question is, when am I back?

“Well, I have good news, but I have bad news. The bad news is, I don’t owe a thing to you social media folks. See what I’ve learned the last eight weeks, all the pain, all the suffering, all the rehab, doing everything I could possibly do to make sure when I come back, I’m in the best shape of my life and people online couldn’t care less.

“The fans couldn’t care less. They didn’t celebrate the fact that I was on Smackdown every week, they bitched, and they complained because I wasn’t wrestling. So I’m not going to tell you, but the good news is you will get an answer very, very soon. It’s just gonna be on my time because that is the Grayson Waller Effect.”
