In a recent turn of events, Grayson Waller, a prominent figure in the professional wrestling world, has made headlines following his appearance on the Australian morning talk show, Sunrise.

The incident, which quickly went viral, saw Waller and fellow wrestler LA Knight respond to an unusual request from the show’s host.

WWE News: The Controversial Incident

During the show, the host asked Knight if he could demonstrate one of his signature wrestling moves on someone in the studio.

Knight declined, passing the situation to Waller. The hosts then suggested performing a WWE move on their floor manager, who appeared ready to engage with Waller jokingly.

However, Waller’s reaction was not what anyone expected. He became visibly irritated and threatened to punch the floor manager, expressing his displeasure at what he perceived as a disrespect to the professional wrestling industry.

WWE News: Waller’s Response to the Outrage

Following the incident, Waller remained silent until he tweeted a photo of former WWE Superstar David Schultz, known for his physical altercation with journalist John Stossel in the 1980s.

Stossel had claimed that professional wrestling was fake, leading to Schultz slapping him, an action that resulted in a lawsuit against WWE and Schultz.

Waller’s tweet, without any accompanying text, seemed to align his stance with Schultz’s historical defence of the wrestling profession.
