Grayson Waller: I'm Worried Cody Is Going To Be Traded To SmackDown, He'll Try To Overshadow Me

Grayson Waller says he doesn't want Cody Rhodes on SmackDown.

At the Payback premium live event, Cody Rhodes made a blockbuster announcement, as he revealed Jey Uso was returning to WWE to join the Monday Night Raw roster.

The following Monday, Adam Pearce announced that a Raw star would be traded to SmackDown to compensate for Jey Uso's move to red brand.

While it is currently unknown what star will be moving to SmackDown, many fans have speculated that it will be Cody Rhodes, as it would be a easy way for 'The American Nightmare' to get his long awaited rematch with Roman Reigns.

On the latest episode of WWE's After The Bell podcast, Grayson Waller said that he doesn't want Rhodes to come to SmackDown, as he will try and overshadow him.

“Yeah, it kinda worries me who they’re gonna bring over. I’m worried it’s going to be Cody. You wanna talk about someone who gonna try and overshadow me, he tried to do it on my show Saturday. I’m polite enough to let him on my show, he’s making these jokes about hip toss class and skull and yes, I enjoyed skill with Terry Taylor, okay Cody? You don’t have to mention it in front of everyone. I’m hoping it someone, for me personally, I would love it to be Indi Hartwell, bring an Australian over. Maybe Bronson Reed, make SmackDown the Australian show with all of the big name Australians. We don’t need Cody, we don’t need these guys trying to over shadow us, we need people who are going to take that torch.”
