In the main event match of last week’s WWE SmackDown at Madison Square Garden, Grayson Waller made his WWE main roster in-ring debut against WWE Hall of Famer Edge.

During the match, Grayson paid tribute to UFC star Conor McGregor by doing the same “both hands behind the back” spot, which McGregor did against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in 2016, which also took place at MSG.

Grayson saw the above tweet from journalist Ariel Helwani and tweeted the following:

“Two MSG Main Eventers.”

Edge said he wanted to find out if Grayson will sink or swim when he faces the 33-year-old wrestler.

Grayson eventually earned Edge’s respect. After defeating Waller, Edge said:

“Hey Waller, you swam.”

According to WRKD Wrestling, WWE Officials see big things in the future of Waller:

“If it wasn’t clear from his work with John Cena at Money In The Bank or Edge on SmackDown, Grayson Waller is being set up for a big future.

Many in creative feel that he has the tools, both wrestling and on the mic, to be a future main eventer for years to come.”

Reacting to his debut match, Grayson took at shot at The Rock’s WWF in-ring debut at Survivor Series 1996, which also took place at MSG.

Below is what Waller tweeted:

“The biggest debut in Madison Square Garden since that bloke who wore the cringe tassels.”

Grayson took another shot at The Rock, this time by posting a video where he wore an outfit similar to what The Rock (known as Rocky Maivia back then) wore at Survivor Series 1996 and asked if The Great One smells what he’s cooking.

He also wrote the following in the caption:

“I change my mind, my MSG debut was better.”

The Rock saw this and replied:

“Man you’re right!

That outfit was so cringe 😂👏🏾👏🏾

Here’s what’s more cringe – the fact you look and sound like you dropped out of some jabroni’s balloon knot.

Nice haircut, you Outback Jack Off.

PS, my cringe debut outfit was all Triple H’s idea 🤣”

Grayson then replied:

“Ouch! Those classic 1999 schoolyard insults really still hit.

You still have an open invitation to be a guest on The Grayson Waller Effect though! Sounds like you’re in desperate need of the Grayson Waller rub #GWEffect”
