Grayson Waller made the leap from NXT to SmackDown as part of the WWE Draft but despite the move, he has yet to wrestle on the blue brand and now the reason has been revealed.

Grayson Waller last competed in the ring back at Spring Breakin’ in April 2023 when he unsuccessfully challenged Carmelo Hayes for the NXT Championship. The name of that show proved to be unfortunately apt for the Australian as he has now revealed he suffered a broken leg in that contest.

Taking to social media, Grayson Waller posted a video where he discussed his condition and blasted fans that he says “couldn’t care less” about his injury:

“In my last match against Carmelo Hayes on NXT, I broke my leg. Clean break of the fibula, but because I’m a straight-up gangster from Southwestern Sydney, I kept going and I was moments away from becoming NXTchampion. Fast forward two weeks, I hobble on crutches into the WWE Draft and SmackDown with the steel of the entire draft, chooses Grayson Waller. Despite the fact that I couldn’t wrestle, I could barely even walk.

“The reality is Grayson Waller on one leg has more value than 99% of wrestlers with two. So what did I do? Week after week on Fox, I entertained millions with the Grayson Waller effect, the hottest talk show in all of pro wrestling, rubbing shoulders with the biggest stars in the game.

“AJ Styles, Charlotte Flair, Asuka, the next Tag Team champions Pretty Deadly. And this Friday on Fox, I have the biggest star in the entire industry, Logan Paul. But let’s stop talking about the talk show for a bit because I keep seeing whatever I’m saying online. Am I just a talk show host? Now, if I was, I guarantee I’d be the greatest talk show host in the history of this company.

“But as good as I am on Grayson Waller Effect, as good as I am on the microphone, I’m better in the ring. So the question is, when am I back? Well, I have good news, but I have bad news. The bad news is, I don’t owe a thing to use social media flops. See what I’ve learned the last eight weeks, all the pain, all the suffering, all the rehab, doing everything I could possibly do to make sure when I come back I’m in the best shape of my life.

“People online couldn’t care less. The fans couldn’t care less. They didn’t celebrate the fact that I was on SmackDown every week. They bitched and they complained. Cause I wasn’t wrestling So I’m not gonna tell you. But the good news is you will get an answer very, very soon. It’s just gonna be on my time because that is the Grayson Waller Effect.”
