Triple H Has “High Hopes” For NXT Call-Up
With several NXT stars leaving the brand following the WWE Draft, it seems one, in particular, could be set for big things in the eyes of Triple H.
Cameron Grimes was the last star picked on television as part of the recent WWE Draft which reset the Raw and SmackDown rosters for the foreseeable future. Grimes had found success on NXT with his popular “bitcoin billionaire” character that saw him become aligned at one point with The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase.
WRKD Wrestling reported that despite being picked last in the WWE Draft, Triple H is said to have high hopes for former Million Dollar Champion Cameron Grimes:
“While drafted last, we’ve heard HHH has high hopes for @CGrimesWWE , having long advocated for him to be called up.
“Between mic skills/body transformation, he has supporters backstage and a push is expected once the draft goes into effect. #SmackDown”

Grimes appeared on the 5th of May edition of SmackDown where he got involved in a verbal altercation with Baron Corbin. Corbin alluded to Grimes’ ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ status following the WWE Draft while Grimes noted that Corbin wasn’t drafted at all. Adam Pearce made a match between the two men for the following week’s SmackDown in Knoxville, Tennessee.
