Grayson Waller has hosted multiple episodes of his “The Grayson Waller Effect” talk show on SmackDown, but hasn’t made his blue brand in-ring debut yet.
His last match took place on the April 25th episode of NXT, where he lost to Carmelo Hayes in a match for the NXT Championship.
Grayson posted a video on Twitter and revealed that he broke his leg during the above stated match.
Below is what Waller said:
“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 steal 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 you social media flops. See what I’ve learned the last 8 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 b*tched and they complained. Because 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.”
