Tommy Dreamer, a renowned name in Impact Wrestling, recently expressed his concerns over WWE's handling of Cameron Grimes. On the latest episode of "Busted Open Radio," Dreamer shared his thoughts about Grimes' trajectory since his transition to the main roster following the 2023 WWE Draft.

Dreamer, known for his keen insights into the wrestling world, did not mince words in his critique. In his candid discussion, Dreamer highlighted, "[It] made me really say, 'God, did they drop the ball with Cameron Grimes [on the main roster].'

Cameron Grimes is an outstanding performer, and his work in NXT led me to believe he was destined for stardom on any brand. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case."

Grimes' Diminished Spotlight

Dreamer further elaborated on his perspective, emphasizing Grimes' remarkable charisma and standout performances during his NXT tenure.

"Grimes was a must-see attraction in NXT, but now, it's as if he's vanished from the spotlight. His match was enjoyable, but what really stood out was Grimes himself. Sometimes, being called up to the main roster doesn't pan out as expected, especially when a talent's potential is underutilized," he added.

This critical assessment by Dreamer sheds light on the often-discussed challenges faced by WWE superstars transitioning from NXT to the main roster. Grimes, who had carved a niche for himself with his unique charisma and in-ring capabilities in NXT, seems to have hit a roadblock in maintaining that momentum post-draft.

Dreamer's comments resonate with many wrestling enthusiasts and insiders who have observed similar patterns with other NXT talents. The hope, as Dreamer expresses, is for a turnaround in Grimes' journey, allowing him to reclaim the spotlight that his NXT run promised.

His situation serves as a broader reflection on the complexities and unpredictability of career trajectories within the professional wrestling industry, particularly within the WWE framework. As the discussion continues in the wrestling community, Dreamer's critique offers a poignant reminder of the delicate balance between talent, opportunity, and visibility in the world of professional wrestling.
