Cameron Grimes was among the NXT call-ups during the 2023 WWE Draft. He was actually called up a while ago, and he was waiting for the right chance to make his debut on the main roster. That time finally came, and he has a lot of people behind him.

Grimes was called up to SmackDown along with Pretty Deadly and Grayson Waller. JD McDonagh, Zoey Stark, Indi Hartwell Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn, Apollo Crews, Kayden Carter & Katana Chance, Indus Sher, and Odyssey Jones were all called up to RAW. Von Wagner and Xyon Quinn were called up as free agents.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that, “Cameron Grimes has several people backstage in WWE pulling for him, and has for quite some time.” It was further noted that Triple H and others have been fans of Grimes for a while.

Grimes was officially called up to WWE Smackdown during the 2023 Draft, but WWE had been eyeing him for a call up for ages. Months before that, he wrestled a dark match before Smackdown, and by that time, WWE had plans for him to be called up already. Several WWE higher ups, including Triple H, were said to have been fans of his work and saw potential in him on the main roster.


It’s worth noting that in addition to higher ups, several agents and producers also spoke highly of his work, and numerous had experience in working with him in the past. One longtime WWE employee told Fightful that they saw Grimes as a “slam dunk” in that he could work any number styles.

We will have to see what Cameron Grimes does on the main roster. He’s just getting started, and he’s already looking to go to the moon.
