The U.S. Title is missing something, Waller says.
Dating back to November 2022, the WWE United States Championship has been in Austin Theory’s possession. A fellow SmackDown talent who has his sights set on the title is Grayson Waller.
While appearing on WWE Die Woche, Waller expressed that he’s aiming to become United States Champion and feels the title is missing something. Waller had the opportunity to secure a title match on the 7/14 Friday Night SmackDown.
There’s a lot, there’s a lot (of championships I have my eyes on in WWE). I’ve done some big things in my career in the WWE. I’ve almost done it all but the one thing I haven’t done yet is win a championship so I think it’s time that I need to change that up and the one that I’m looking at is the United States Championship. I think that’s a championship with a lot of history, a lot of big names have won that and I look at that division and I’m just like, it’s missing something. I think it’s missing Grayson Waller. I had my opportunity in a four-way. Santos (Escobar) stole that match from me. So whether it’s Santos Escobar, Austin Theory, it doesn’t matter. I think you’re gonna see Grayson Waller with that United States Championship very soon.
As the conversation rolled on, Waller was asked who he’d like to have on his Grayson Waller Effect talk show. He named WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus as a potential guest.
There’s so many options, there’s so many options (to have on The Grayson Waller Effect). I’ve ticked off a lot of boxes. I’ve had Hall of Famers, social media superstars like Logan Paul. He’s probably the biggest name in WWE technically. But I think the one on the list that I need to get is Trish Stratus. I think Trish Stratus on The Grayson Waller Effect would be fantastic. I would love to say thank you to Trish. She has everyone wearing those shirts. I’ll wear one of the ‘thank you Trish’ shirts, no problem. Come on. I think Trish on The Grayson Waller Effect would be fantastic.
Next in line to get a shot at Theory’s United States Championship is Santos Escobar. He defeated Rey Mysterio via referee stoppage to secure the title opportunity.
