In a bold declaration, WWE Superstar Cameron Grimes has ignited the flames ahead of his imminent return to Friday Night SmackDown, where he is slated to face Grayson Waller. Grimes, who transitioned from WWE’s developmental brand NXT to SmackDown during the 2023 Draft, has faced challenges in securing a regular spot on the blue brand’s television programming.
The 30-year-old grappler last graced the SmackDown ring on November 17, 2023, in a match against Grayson Waller, which ended in defeat for Grimes. Now, as the New Year’s Revolution edition of SmackDown approaches, Grimes has taken to Instagram to send a fiery message to Waller:
“Can’t wait to crush this clown!,” Grimes boldly proclaimed.

As the WWE Universe anticipates this clash, Grimes’ determination and assertiveness add an extra layer of intrigue to the upcoming showdown. His previous encounter with Waller ended in disappointment, but Grimes appears resolute in changing the narrative this time around.
The Australian-born Grayson Waller, on the other hand, has been making waves on SmackDown, engaging in segments with prominent names like John Cena and Adam Copeland (formerly known as Edge), who is now with AEW. In an interview with Adrian Hernandez, Waller teased a potential clash against the recently returned CM Punk.
Waller, who shares a training connection with Punk through their coach Ace Steel, hinted at a future showdown with The Best in The World. While expressing admiration for Punk and acknowledging the positive aspects of his training under Ace Steel, Waller hinted that his sentiments might change in the future:
“I was trained in NXT by Ace Steel, who was obviously Punk’s coach as well. So I know the type of training that he went through. Ace Steel is a great trainer, man. He’s very hard-nosed, very to-the-point. He got me a lot of my first matches in NXT. So you know what? I have nothing but positive things to say about Ace, and nothing but positive things currently to say about Punk. But I’m sure that will change in the future,” Waller shared.
As the wrestling world gears up for Cameron Grimes’ return and the potential brewing rivalry between Grayson Waller and CM Punk, the stage is set for an electrifying chapter on Friday Night SmackDown.
