WWE has released a video capturing the ecstatic reaction of NXT star Grayson Waller to his main roster call-up during the WWE Draft. Waller has long been touted by WWE legends such as Shawn Michaels and The Miz as a future WWE main-eventer, and his promotion to SmackDown is a major step in his career.

Following the announcement, Waller delivered an entertaining promo in which he expressed his surprise that SmackDown took so long to pick him up, throwing shade at the NXT stars who were also in the room. He emphasized that he had gotten himself to where he is, not the people behind him.

To celebrate his call-up, Waller performed a ‘shoey’, drinking from a shoe, a celebratory act popularized by Australian athletes and motorsport racers.

It is possible that the entire segment was improvised on the spot, as a previous report indicated that some NXT call-ups had no knowledge of their main roster plans until their draft announcements.


WWE fans are excited to see what Grayson Waller can bring to the main roster and whether he will live up to his potential as a future WWE main-eventer. Stay tuned for more updates on his journey in the wrestling world.
