In the middle of WWE Wrestle Mania 39 season builds WWE’s developmental territory to its own pinnacle. NXT hosted NXT revenge day last weekend, headlined by Bron Breakker retaining his NXT Championship against Grayson Waller in a steel cage match. This win continued Breakker’s long streak with the top prize of white and gold as he is currently the second longest reigning NXT Champion in the title’s 13-year history. While many anticipate Breakker’s defense NXT Stand & Lever will come against Carmelo Hayes, Waller teased that he’s not done with his title pursuits at the NXT revenge day media call.
After the premium live event, Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels hosted a media call that was interrupted by Waller. The Australian star accused Michaels of not treating him like the brand’s top star.
“Are we going to talk about it? Let me ask you a question: why am I not the man?” Waller asked Michaels. “Should I put hearts on my gear like the rest of these fans? It’s a bunch of fans in the locker room. Talk to me now. Want me to take a picture? Do you pose? You want me to be a fan of yours “Is that how I become your husband?”
After the storyline incident, Waller is “suspended for a week.” This will force him to miss tonight’s episode WWE NXT.
“Has absolutely nothing to do with what I said to him at gorilla or my tweet earlier,” Waller responded to news of his suspension on Twitter.
This is the last “elaborated shooting” incident used in Waller’s NXT storylines. In the run up to NXT revenge dayWaller confronted Breakker at the WWE Performance Center, brawling with the second-generation star in a fight that was captured on Instagram Live cameras.
