Taylor Swift fans are providing the biggest test of one WWE star’s career since they went toe-to-toe with John Cena.
Grayson Waller sparked controversy on a recent episode of The Bump while discussing Taylor Swift’s relationship with Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce. During the segment, Waller said Swift was a “6,” which didn’t go down at all well with the star’s almost cult-like fanbase.
This led to Waller coming under fire on social media, but the Australian star is showing no sign of backing down.
Appearing at a WWE live event in Laredo, TX on October 22nd, Waller came to the ring wearing a Taylor Swift t-shirt and mocked Swift’s handshake celebration with Brittany Mahomes with tag team partner Austin Theory.
Grayson Waller stepped up to the main roster back in May following the Draft. However, the Aussie star had to wait to make his in-ring debut due to injury. The former NXT star has since tangled with some of the biggest stars on the roster and began teaming with Theory in August.
On the October 20th episode of SmackDown, Theory and Waller teamed together to get the better of Cameron Grimes and Dragon Lee.

Taylor Swift Cheers Travis Kelce To Another Victory
Waller’s latest jabs came after Swift and Brittany Mahomes watched their partners emerge victorious over the Los Angeles Chargers. A wild first half saw the Chiefs go in with a 24-17 lead, with both offences putting on a show for a packed Arrowhead Stadium.
The scoring slowed in the second half with the Chiefs eventually taking control to run out 31-17 winners. Chiefs’ star quarterback Patrick Mahomes finished with four touchdowns for 424 yards and continued to link up with Kelce to great effect with the tight end racking up 179 yards with one touchdown.
Following the game’s first touchdown, Swift and Brittany Mahomes celebrated with a new handshake routine.
