Grayson Waller Threatens Violence On News Show

Grayson Waller on the mic

Grayson Waller didn’t take kindly to the hosts of the Australian news show, Sunrise.

Waller and LA Knight were on the show to promote Elimination Chamber, which will take place in Perth, Australia, on February 24th. Towards the end of the interview, one of the hosts, Matt Shirvington, asked if the duo could show one of their signature moves and volunteered one of the crew to take the hit.

While the presenter was likely going for a light-hearted segment, Waller didn’t appreciate the suggestion and warned Shirvington that he wouldn’t be throwing a fake punch, but would legitimately hit the crew member in the jaw.

“I don’t think you understand, if I come over there we are going to have the police here because I’m not going to give you some fake punch I am going to punch you straight in the jaw.”

The star felt disrespected by the hosts, and told them not to “act tough.”

The disrespect you have even talking to me, no you want to talk to me like this and say this ain’t real. Don’t act all tough lad, don’t act all tough…we don’t mess around with that.

[Speaking to the show’s presenter Matt Shirvington] You too Matt, you two come here and try disrespecting us.”
