Grayson Waller dedicates Bret Hart spot to Shawn Michaels ass-kissers backstage at NXT

That, and all the highlights from the Dec. 20 episode.

When the names Bret Hart & Goldberg come up, these days a lot of wrestling fans only think of Bret’s ongoing quest to use every interview to remind the world he blames Bill G. for ending his career. But before that happened, they also gave us this bit of pro wrestling...

Grayson Waller is preparing to challenge Bron Breakker for the NXT championship at “New Year’s Evil” on Jan. 10. Dealing with another former football player who’s skyrocketed to success in the ring and likes to throw spears around, the brash young Australian took a page from the Hitman’s book last night on NXT.

Doing Bret Hart tribute spots isn’t necessarily a heel move these days, though — ask FTR, and that friend of theirs who, before he left wrestling again, was getting big pops incorporating sequences from Bret matches into his own. So Waller took aim at another beloved icon, former enemy of Hart’s, and his boss, in a post-show tweet.
