The Rock doesn’t show up on WWE television much anymore. He’s not hard to find, as one of the most famous people on the planet, but his schedule prohibits him from really getting involved. That won’t stop people from wishing that wasn’t the case.
NXT has a lot of top prospects for WWE’s next breakout talent. Grayson Waller is seemingly leading the pack, thanks to his ring style and ability to talk. He would also love to mix it up with The Rock.
Grayson Waller recently took part in a Q&A session online. During that time, he was asked about a dream match situation. Waller had his own suggestion, because instead of having a match, he would like to go toe-to-toe with The Rock in a promo battle.
Now, a lot of people talk about dream matches, but I’m going to do this a little differently, because what I’m picturing right now is … can you imagine, in one ring, Grayson Waller and The Rock. The Great One. One of the greatest talkers of all time. Give us both the microphone and let us cook. Oh, you wanna talk about burn after burn after burn. So you talk about Grayson Waller and The Rock segment, that’s ratings there!
Grayson Waller is very confident in his abilities, especially on the microphone. We’ll have to see if he ever steps in the ring with The Rock, but it’s not likely that Dwayne Johnson will step foot in NXT, despite the fact that his daughter is currently on the roster.
The Rock couldn’t make WrestleMania 39 work, because he wouldn’t be ready for a match against Roman Reigns by that time. We’ll have to see if he can get in ring shape for another match down the line, but a promo battle with Grayson Waller would certainly present less physical risk for the People’s Champ.
Do you think The Rock would be big ratings for NXT? Do you want to see him against Grayson Waller? Sound off in the comments!
