Cameron Grimes has a ton of potential, and he was one of Triple H’s favorites back in NXT. Now that Triple H is Chief Content Officer, it’s only logical to assume that Cameron Grimes will be given something special to work with on the main roster.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that he asked about Cameron Grimes’ status for the 2023 WWE Draft. It was noted to him that WWE doesn’t have NXT talent work SmackDown, but he still wrestled at those tapings. This could have been a strong indicator that Cameron Grimes’ WWE main roster call-up happened without anyone realizing it.

Cameron Grimes has been considered for a main roster call-up for months, and actually worked a Smackdown taping in February. When we asked about his status, we were told that WWE doesn’t have NXT talent work the Smackdown tapings.


It is interesting that WWE doesn’t have NXT talent work SmackDown tapings, but Cameron Grimes was still used. This could further indicate that WWE called Grimes up to the main roster a while ago, but he’s just waiting for the right creative to jump on television.

Cameron Grimes never won the NXT Title, but he did have runs with other belts, including the Million Dollar Title. That storyline with LA Knight and Ted DiBiase was a lifelong dream come true for Grimes and Knight.

Only time will tell what kind of amazing memories Cameron Grimes racks up on the WWE main roster, but his time on SmackDown might have already quietly started. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world.
