Cameron Grimes was called up to the WWE main roster, where he was placed on the SmackDown brand. Sadly, the former NXT North American Champion hasn’t been seen much at all. There is a reason for that, and it might play into how good he is.
WWE presented another episode of SmackDown this week on December 15h, and they taped the December 22nd episode right afterward. Cameron Grimes was spotted during the blue brand this week, which is rare for him. He had gone without being seen on WWE television for a while until then.
During a Q&A behind Fightful’s paywall, Sean Sapp was asked about Cameron Grimes’ current place in WWE. He started that Grimes’ ability to work in so many places is actually hurting him in a way, because he’s a free agent, and floating around as WWE needs him.
“That will his role [floating around], that will be a lot of it. It’s unfortunate, because it’s one of those things where his versatility and flexibility is almost a detriment, because he can fit into anything. He can work as a face, work as a heel. Singles, tag, heavyweight, cruiserweight, he can do anything.”
Cameron Grimes did show up during WWE SmackDown for their December 15th episode. It will be interesting to see how WWE books him from this point on, but he’s obviously waiting in the wings, ready for his opportunity.
WWE may not have been able to strap a rocket to Cameron Grimes just yet, but he’s still going “to the moon” if you ask him. He also has a ton of fans who are pulling for him to break out and make it big in WWE.
