Grayson Waller recently appeared as a guest on the Babyfaces podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the host of The Grayson Waller Effect spoke about how The Rock’s response to him giving “The People’s Champion” a path to return to WWE didn’t impress him, so he’s moving on.
“I was over The Rock three seconds after he tweeted me with some mediocre response,” Waller said. “I was trying to help him out. I went out of my way to go there to make the Rock relevant in WWE again. Obviously, he’s a huge global superstar, everyone knows The Rock, he’s probably the most well-known professional wrestler of all time, but when it comes to WWE, it’s all about what have you done for me lately?”
Waller continued, “He hasn’t done nothing for anyone lately, so I was trying to give him a path to come back in, maybe ease him in before Roman [Roman Reigns] and the Bloodline, they have all these things going on. I don’t think he was about that. The Rock is at a stage in his life where he knows if he gets back in the ring, all these young, hungry guys, we’re not going to sit down and show him the respect. We want to fight. I don’t think The Rock wanted to fight me. I’ve moved on. I gave him his opportunity. He had the chance for the Grayson Waller rub, he didn’t take it, so I’m going to give that opportunity to someone else.”
