Following his loss to NXT Champion Bron Breakker at NXT Vengeance Day, Grayson Waller confronted Shawn Michaels during the post-show press conference. Now, he’s been suspended for his actions.
In a tweet on February 6, WWE announced that Waller had been suspended for a week due to the incident. Things erupted when Waller barged into Michaels’ interview following the event and demanded to know what he had to do in order to be “the guy” at NXT. As Michaels and some other officials tried to get him out of the room, Waller then began yelling, asking if he needed to wear hearts on his tights or maybe dress like Diesel in order to get Michaels’ attention.
The confrontation proved to be a costly one for Waller, who will now have to wait a week before he can officially try to bounce back at NXT Vengeance Day.

In a tweet, Waller commented on the news by seemingly apologizing and saying he’d take a picture with him like all of the other “fans” in the locker room.
I’m really sorry Shawn! Let me back! I promise I’ll take a nice photo with you like the other fans in the locker room #WWENXT #ImSorry pic.twitter.com/NQ6eCblIMv
