WaGrayson 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 had a solid match with Edge on Smackdown this week and it appears Waller paid tribute to Conor McGregor during the match.

As seen on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Grayson Waller held another segment of ‘his talk show ‘The Grayson Waller Effect’ and his special guest was none other than WWE Hall Of Famer Edge.

The segment eventually led to a match between the two, where Edge stated it was a sink-or-swim situation for Waller. Edge would go on to defeat Waller but then told the Australian star that he swam.

Journalist Ariel Helwani took to Twitter and pointed out that Grayson Waller is a huge MMA fan, which is why he paid tribute to Conor McGregor during his match with Edge. It was noted that Waller’s initial pose before the match was a tribute to McGregor vs Eddie A at UFC 205.


Rising star @GraysonWWE, who is a massive MMA fan, made his main roster debut yesterday at MSG.

He paid tribute to @TheNotoriousMMA vs. Eddie A at UFC 205.
