WWE SmackDown, the last stop before the highly anticipated Money in the Bank 2023 event at The O2 Arena in London, promises to be an electrifying show. However, one wrestler who won't be stepping into the ring is Grayson Waller, as he is currently sidelined with a broken leg, thus delaying his debut on the main roster.
During the annual draft earlier this year, Grayson Waller was drafted to Friday Night SmackDown, generating excitement among fans who were eager to see him in action. Unfortunately, Waller has yet to compete or engage in any storylines with fellow superstars.
Instead, he has been hosting the Grayson Waller Effect, a weekly show that has kept fans entertained.
Waller's Injury Revelation and Determination
In a recent video addressing the criticism he faced following Carmelo Hayes' debut on RAW, Waller disclosed the reason behind his absence and broken leg.
He revealed that his last encounter with Hayes led to the injury and that he is currently undergoing rehabilitation before his long-awaited in-ring debut. Despite his struggles, Waller remains determined to return in peak physical condition, stating, "See what I've learned the last eight weeks, all the pain, all the suffering, all the rehab, doing everything I could possibly do to make sure when I come back I'm in the best shape of my life.
People online couldn't care less. The fans couldn't care less." Fans eagerly await Waller's full recovery and his eventual appearance inside the squared circle, where he will showcase his skills and make his mark on the blue brand.
In other Money in the Bank news, WWE recently announced that the event will be held in the United Kingdom, deviating from the tradition of hosting WWE Clash at The Castle. The Men's Money in the Bank Ladder match has seen several impressive qualifiers, including LA Knight, Ricochet, Shinsuke Nakamura, Santos Escobar of the Latino World Order, Butch of The Brawling Brutes, and Damian Priest of The Judgment Day.
Adding to the excitement, Logan Paul has secured a spot in the match without participating in any qualifying matches. The controversial social media personality boldly declared his intentions to capture the coveted briefcase at the Pay-Per-View event.
Tensions escalated further when a chaotic brawl erupted between the participants after Paul's appearance on WWE RAW. As the final SmackDown before Money in the Bank approaches, Logan Paul is scheduled to make his return to the blue brand.
He will appear on the Grayson Waller Effect, discussing his involvement in the upcoming Money in the Bank Ladder match, ensuring an entertaining and unpredictable episode.
