WWE Star Wants To Change The Name Of Championship WWE

It’s been quite a time for championship hopefuls and their plans for the titles and one WWE NXT star has stepped into the fray.

While Cody Rhodes would like to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and defend it on a “more is more” basis, Grayson Waller has a different vision for a championship that he has in his sights.

The NXT star recently spoke about his plans for the United States Championship should WWE return to Australia.

Speaking to Roasted Podcast, Waller 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.”

He would then lay out his vision for the United States Championship, currently held by Austin Theory, saying:

“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.”

Austin Theory is set to face John Cena at WrestleMania 39 with the United States Championship on the line.

WWE hasn’t announced official plans to return to Australia, although a recent report suggested that there are negotiations to run a major stadium show there.
