Grayson Waller established himself as one of the top stars during his time in NXT. The Australian WWE Superstar is such a natural heel that people can’t help but hate him for real. He was finally called up to the main roster but still hasn’t competed inside the squared circle on Smackdown. Now it appears Waller finally revealed why he hasn’t wrestled yet.

During Night Two of the WWE Draft on Monday Night RAW, Grayson Waller was drafted to Friday Night Smackdown, which is very big deal for the young Australian WWE Superstar. He even celebrated the call up in an epic way.

Since making his way onto the main roster, Grayson Waller has largely been a part of WWE television with his Grayson Waller Effect segments but still hasn’t wrestled a single match.

The Australian WWE Superstar took to Twitter and uploaded a video, where he explained why he hasn’t wrestled yet. Ultimately, it came down to the fact that he still hasn’t recovered from his leg injury.


“In my last match against Carmelo Hayes on NXT, I broke my leg. Clean break of the fibula, but because I’m a straight up gangster from 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 steel 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 entertained millions with the Grayson Waller effect, the hottest talk show in all of 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 whatever I’m 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 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 use social media flops. 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. 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. Cause I wasn’t wrestling So I’m not gonna 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.”

WWE already has big plans for Grayson Waller on Friday Night Smackdown. We will have to wait and see when Waller will heal up and finally wrestle his first match on the blue brand, as it will certainly be a very big deal.
