NXT 2.0's Grayson Waller Debuts On WWE Raw On 12/27, Confronts AJ Styles

Raw feels the Grayson Waller Effect.

AJ Styles thought he'd be facing his former bodyguard, Omos, on Monday, December 27, 2021. Instead, he was confronted by NXT's Grayson Waller, who was making his WWE Raw debut. Waller was in the crowd hazing AJ Styles because AJ confronted him at NXT 2.0 last week.

Waller reiterated that he still planned on letting Omos face AJ first, but he was making more of a name for himself by appearing on Mondays.

AJ would then be interrupted by Commander Azeez and Apollo Crews. Crews mocked AJ for no longer having his giant as backup and Azeez then challenged AJ. However, after a commercial break, it was revealed that Apollo was the one wrestling AJ Styles.

AJ, cheered like a babyface, then beat Apollo and laid out Azeez.

There was no word on why Omos didn't appear on Raw. The effects of COVID have been shaking live events, however. Learn more here.
