Speaking to Adrian Hernandez's YouTube channel, Grayson Waller commented on CM Punk's return to WWE. Waller was surprised by the amount of positive reaction within WWE following the arrival of CM Punk. Grayson emphasized that there is currently a great atmosphere within the company.
“I didn’t realize how wrong the internet was about everything until I came to WWE and I was actually backstage and saw some things. I don’t think there’s anything but positive energy about CM Punk coming back. The entire roster right now is great from top to bottom. Everyone’s challenging each other, everyone wants to be the top guy, but no one’s stepping on anyone to get there. Maybe me. You know, I don’t mind doing that, but everyone’s kind of working together. We want this product to succeed and I think that’s what’s happening so I think everyone’s buzzing to have him back."- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com!
Grayson Waller reacts to CM Punk's return
Waller doesn't get why some criticize CM Punk's comeback. He strongly believes in Punk's abilities and is confident that Punk will achieve great things. Grayson also mentioned Punk's mentor, who happens to be the same coach who mentored Waller.
"Why would you not want to have this guy who can cut incredible promos, he can have great matches who the crowd wants to see, who’s super controversial. Like if you don’t want him back here, like, you’re stupid type of thing, and for me personally, you know, I said some things online about Punk when I heard the rumors. I like to play with the rumors and have some fun and that type of thing and I got to meet him recently and that’s all I’ll say on that, but I was trained in NXT originally by Ace Steel who was obviously Punk’s coach as well. So like, I know the type of training that he went through. Ace Steel is a great trainer. He’s very hard-nosed, very to the point. He got me a lot of my first matches in NXT. So you know, I have nothing but positive things to say about Ace and nothing but positive things to say currently about Punk, but I’m sure that will change in the future.”
