After seeing Grayson Waller try to take the NXT champion belt from Bron Breakker in the main event of NXT: Vengeance Day, also using the steel cage to his advantage but failing, an angry Waller interrupted the conference call with the media by Shawn Michaels and other NXT executives, railing against Breakker and the officials themselves.
After hearing Matt Bloom clamoring for Waller to leave, the same athlete would have started to inveigh against him too, with such behavior that obviously had consequences, in fact Shawn Michaels suspended him for a week. The two continued this petty feud over the next few weeks and now, thanks to a WRKD Wrestling update, we learn the following: "As many fans have speculated, the idea of Shawn Michaels forcing Grayson Waller to face a rookie Dragon Lee has actually been discussed”.
New details on Shawn Michaels
After announcing that luchador Dragon Lee had signed with WWE, in particular to be able to fight in NXT, nothing more had been heard of him, with fans still waiting to see him in action in the company.
The explanation for this delay in his debut was given by Dave Meltzer, saying that he hadn't appeared at Vengeance Day due to visa problems: "They didn't, they don't trust them to bring so many indies kids. I'm sure they wanted to introduce Dragon Lee, but he's having visa issues, so he's not there yet." It seems that WWE has finally managed to solve this problem and that we could soon see the luchador facing a Waller who has perhaps gone against the wrong people at the moment in the wrong way, with Shawn Michaels who seems to want to teach him a good lesson.
And we remind you that to comment on everything related to the world of WWE NXT, you can connect every Wednesday on Open Wrestling TV together with the NeXT Big Thing team. Shawn Michaels purposely tried to sabotage his WWE SummerSlam 2005 match against Hulk Hogan, according to Eric Bischoff.
"I lost all respect for Shawn Michaels. It was pretty clear. There was an issue between Hulk and Shawn Michaels. There was a lack of respect, I think, there, perhaps some jealousy on Shawn's part that, 'Here's this Hulk Hogan. He's still here.
He's still the guy.' I don't know. I wasn't close to Shawn at that point. He knew what was going on," Bischoff continued. "He knew he was being embarrassed out there by Shawn and he knew it was intentional. He wasn't angry."
