Since receiving his call-up to the blue-brand, Grayson Waller has been cemented as the new talk-show host on SmackDown. Whilst Waller has yet to wrestle a match, it’s likely that he will be given a strong push, based on how WWE have presented him in his talk-show segments.
During an interview from his time in NXT on the Roasted Podcast, Waller revealed that he wants to win the US Title, and rename it the Australian Championship. Waller is now competing on a brand which just so happens to have the US Title attached, so this is the perfect opportunity for WWE to do something drastic, yet innovative with the mid-card title. During the interview itself, Waller added:
“The one thought I did have, which would be a beautiful thing, is if I could win the United States Champion in Australia and then convert that championship into the Australian Championship. That would be a beautiful thing. I see that American flag, and it doesn't excite me. It doesn't rep me. I don't want to have it as the US belt, I want to turn it into the Australian Championship. That's my plan”.
Austin Theory’s US Title run is failing to light the world on fire at the present time. Ever since Theory’s career-defining win over John Cena at WrestleMania 39, Theory has been lost in the shuffle, and fans on social media are pushing for WWE to go in a different direction with the US Title.
