A NXT star wants to win the WWE United States Championship and change the name of the title.
Since debuting on the NXT brand in 2021, the Australian-born Grayson Waller has become one of the fastest rising stars on the entire WWE roster.
Despite his ability to get under the skin of the fans, Waller has a ton of love for his home country of Australia and always makes sure to have that love on display every time he is in the ring.
Speaking on the Roasted podcast, Waller discussed his intentions to win the United States Championship and wanting to change it to the Australian title. He said:
“If there’s an opportunity to be on that show, it would be a dream itself. I rep my country, I rep Australia every time I wrestle. It’s on my gear. I do that for a reason. Just because I left Australia doesn’t mean I left that behind.”
“My dream is to wrestle in Australia, whether that’s in Sydney at Acer Arena [Qudos Bank Arena] or MCG [Melbourne Cricket Ground], they’ve talked about a big stadium in Perth.”
“To wrestle somewhere that I’ve been to watch cricket, to watch rugby, to actually perform there would be massive. It doesn’t matter who I’m against.”
“The one thought I did have, which would be a beautiful thing, is if I could win the United States Champion in Australia and then convert that championship into the Australian Championship.”
“That would be a beautiful thing. I see that American flag, and it doesn’t excite me. It doesn’t rep me. I don’t want to have it as the US belt, I want to turn it into the Australian Championship. That’s my plan.”
Grayson Waller is set to face Johnny Gargano at NXT Stand & Deliver in Los Angeles on April 1 during WrestleMania weekend. For the current lineup for the show, click here.
