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 had a solid match with Edge on Smackdown, which further raised his stock. Now it appears he has been compared to The Miz in a big way.

The Australian star became one of the biggest heels in NXT thanks to his excellent character work and in-ring psychology during the matches. Therefore it was no surprise he was eventually called up to the main roster.

While speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about Grayson Waller’s run in WWE so far. Booker T compared him to The Miz and explained his reasoning behind it.

He’s definitely had that Miz appeal,” Booker said. “He’s a guy that can go out there and talk very, very well, his wrestling ability is good enough to pass the smell test as far as I’m concerned. One thing he has more than anything is star appeal, that’s what I like with this kid, he has star appeal. You want to love to hate this dude.

I said he’s mature enough to make it on the main roster, I thought he fit right in on the main roster,” Booker said. “I’m not surprised that they’re positioning him this way … Going out there and doing the stuff with Edge, he did a great job, his talking, the way he carries himself, he’s doing a great job. I see nothing wrong that Grayson Waller’s doing thus far.

We will have to see what happens with Grayson Waller next. After all, he has a ton of eyes on him, and he continues to have all the momentum in the world right now.
