Short term promotion? The wrestling world is in a weird time, due to a mixture of WWE’s huge set of changes along with the Coronavirus pandemic. WWE has let all kinds of wrestlers go and completely changed the way NXT works, leaving them without much of a developmental bench. One of those wrestlers did make an appearance on the big show this week though, and it was a bit of a surprise.
This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw was scheduled to include a match between AJ Styles and Omos. However, Omos did not appear on the show for an unexplained reason, leaving Styles with no match. Styles was in the ring speaking when he noticed NXT’s Grayson Waller in the front row. The two spoke in the ring before Apollo Crews appeared and was defeated by Styles. This comes after Styles came to NXT last week to confront Waller of comments he made about Styles. No match has been announced between the two and there is nothing to suggest this is more than a one off appearance.
Waller has made an impact. Check out his issues with Styles and what he has done in NXT:
Opinion: I think it’s safe to say that WWE sees a lot in Waller, as he has been all over NXT TV in recent weeks and now he is making an appearance on one of the big shows. You don’t see that from other people and it is nice to have WWE pushing someone like this. Your mileage on Waller may vary, but at least WWE is trying something with someone new for a change.
What did you think of Waller’s appearance? How would he do on WWE TV? Let us know in the comments below.
