John Cena is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars that WWE have ever produced. During the star’s time with the company his fame grew to such a degree that he has since launch an acting career off the back of his work in the ring.
This naturally means that fans and people within the industry are always looking for who will be the next talent to breakthrough and became a global star.
One such Superstar who has been earning plaudits for his performances in NXT is Grayson Waller. The Australian star is currently wrapped up in a feud with NXT Champion Bron Breakker and on the pathway to big things.
Grayson Welcomes Comparison To John Cena
Speaking during a new interview with Steve Fall on The Ten Count, Waller said that he welcomed comparisons with the likes of Cena and The Rock. Not that he needs fans to tell him how good he is. He’s well aware, and doesn’t care what anyone else has to say about it.
“I should be compared to those guys. It’s not a stress at all,” he said. “I know for some people — I see people here freaking out because they are getting put in these positions, and they’re getting compared to people, and they don’t know what to do. I already know I’m there. I’ve known that for a long time, and I’m finally getting to show that,” he said.
As for the fans, I’m not here to have fans. I don’t care about people. I’m not here to make friends. People sending me fan mail; they don’t care about me. They just want me to sign a card and sell it off. These fans don’t actually care about you. They’re fair-weather, lad. I see the NXT crowd. Every two weeks they change who they like. I don’t buy into it. I think too many people here are distracted by the fans. They’re distracted by what people say on social media. I couldn’t care less. I know how good I am.
I don’t need some 14-year-old kid to send me a letter going, ‘Grayson Waller, you’re so good.’ I know I’m good, lad,” Waller continued. “I don’t need to read this piece of paper. That goes straight into the trash. I don’t even read that stuff anymore; it means absolutely nothing to me.”
Grayson Waller is set to challenge Bron Breakker for the NXT Championship at New Year’s Evil on January 10th.
