Grayson Waller Looks Back On “Surreal” Moment With John Cena At Money In The Bank

Grayson Waller says it was “surreal” to be in the ring with John Cena back at Money In The Bank in London.

Appearing on WWE’s After the Bell podcast, Waller reflected on his confrontation with Cena back at Money In The Bank. The segment featured Cena lobbying for WrestleMania in London, while Waller would campaign for the event to come to Australia.

“I think the word I’d use is surreal. Obviously, being a wrestling fan growing up, John Cena is, many people say, the greatest of all time, so being across from him is wild, especially in the O2,” Waller said. “That arena was sold out. You guys know how wild those English fans are. That’s a different vibe. For me personally, these are the places that I expect myself to be. When I got called up, this is where I wanted to be. When I got in there with John, I didn’t look at it like a huge opportunity for me, I get to be across from — I’m not a fan. I don’t want his autographs, I don’t want his merch. My way to learn from John isn’t by sitting backstage with him and kissing his ass. My way to learn from John is being across from him and going against him, so when I got in there with him, I looked at him as every other opponent I’m in there with. I didn’t look at him as a hero or anything like that because I think that’s when you operate at a different level and you’re not your best.”

Waller appears to be entering a feud with LA Knight along with Austin Theory on SmackDown, while Trish recently lost a steel cage match to Becky Lynch at Payback last weekend.
