Grayson Waller On In-Ring SmackDown Debut: It Was A Crazy Week, I Swam In A Sink Or Swim Situation

Grayson Waller comments on his in-ring WWE SmackDown debut.

On the July 7 episode of WWE SmackDown, Waller hosted The Grayson Waller Effect, and his special guest was Edge. Later in the show, Edge faced Waller in a singles match, which marked Waller's in-ring SmackDown debut, as he hadn't wrestled since he was drafted by WWE SmackDown. Though Edge won the bout, the high-profile match was Waller's latest major moment over the past week, as he shared the ring with John Cena at WWE Money in the Bank.

In a SmackDown Exclusive, Waller shared his thoughts after the match and noted that he was disappointed that he lost, but he felt confident that he swam in a sink-or-swim situation.

“I guess you could say this was a pretty crazy week for Grayson Waller. A week ago, I have global megastar Logan Paul on my show. Then I’m the O2 Arena, sold-out, with John Cena, and then I cap it off with my debut on the main roster, on Friday Night SmackDown, and I wrestle Hall of Famer Edge. For any other wrestler, they could retire happy. This is as good as it heels. How is Grayson Waller feeling right now? I’m feeling pretty damn bad. Because whether or not I hung with Edge, it doesn’t matter because I just lost. But that’s okay because what was that he said to me? He said, ‘Sink of swim.’ Well, I’m pretty damn sure Grayson Waller just swam, and this is just the beginning," Waller said.
