Waller has been a staple of NXT programming since the brand underwent the transition from black and gold to the 2.0 era, back in September 2021. Whole focused on the present, Waller has an eye toward the future, which includes a potential feud against someone who fans constantly compare him up against in the form of former WWE and Intercontinental Champion, The Miz.

“A lot of people have mentioned as similar to me as The Miz. I don’t know if that’s me and him across from each other or standing side-by-side. That’s definitely something I need to tick off the list, as a huge Challenge and Real World fan, that would be all-time. Whether it’s across from The Miz or standing next to him, that’s something I would like to do,” Waller mentioned when appearing on the ‘Beyond The Lead‘ podcast.
