NXT Superstar Grayson Waller spoke about some of his scrapped main roster plans during a recent interview.
Waller signed with WWE in 2021 and has been plying his craft in their developmental territories ever since. The Arrogant Aussie has become a fixture of NXT 2.0, often delivering loud-mouthed promos and getting involved in the business of his fellow superstars.
He has challenged for the NXT North American Championship on a number of occasions, and also had a brief but high-profile feud with former WWE Champion AJ Styles.
The feud with Styles brought The Phenomenal One to NXT for a match with Waller, but also brought the Australian-born star to RAW to confront the veteran. On the red brand, Waller cut a harsh promo on Styles, but initially he wasn't supposed to speak at all, which he talked about during an interview with ESPN's Beyond The Lead podcast.
"They kind of just threw me out there in a way, too. I wasn’t supposed to have a microphone that night," Waller said. (H/T Fightful)
However, plans changed for the NXT Superstar, and he was allowed to cut a promo, which he feels is the strongest part of his arsenal.
“Then things changed during the day and, all of a sudden, I did. I just knew, if you put a microphone in my hands, it’s magic. There’s something about, I don’t know what it is, but I can talk. If you put a microphone in my hand, I’m going to make TV magic."
What has Grayson Waller been up to on NXT?
The last time Grayson Waller had a televised match on NXT 2.0 was at The Great American Bash special.
