Grayson Waller has been punished for his actions following NXT Vengeance Day.
In the main event of the premium live event on February 4, Waller unsuccessfully challenged Bron Breakker for the NXT Championship in a Steel Cage Match. Shortly before the show, Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels announced that the bout could only be won by pinfall or submission. Following his loss, Walker lashed out and confronted Michaels during the post-show press conference. He angrily asked the WWE Hall of Famer what he had to so he could be "the guy" and referenced Michaels' career by noting he could dress up like Diesel or out hearts on his gear, like "The Heartbreak Kid."
In an update, WWE announced that Waller has been suspended for a week due to his actions at the press conference.

Waller responded to the news in a tweet of his own; he said he's sorry and offered to take a nice picture with Michaels like some of his fans in the NXT locker room. He also criticized Michaels' decision to add the pinfall-or-submission-only stipulation.
Fightful will monitor the situation and provide more information as it becomes available.
Bayley will appear on the February 7 episode of WWE NXT. More information is available here.
