Fan jumps the rail at WWE house show trying to get at Grayson Waller

WWE’s Grayson Waller is very good at running his mouth, and getting attention with his words. It’s reportedly (and logically) raised his stock with management, and led to some high profile interactions online and in the ring.

At a house show in Newark, Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center yesterday (Dec. 3) is led a fan making a bad decision. This footage from after Waller & Austin Theory’s match with Odyssey Jones & Cameron Grimes is making the rounds online. In it, you can see security restraining a man on the wrong side of the barricade as Grayson & his partner strut by. The fan is then dumped back over the guard rail and escorted away — presumably out of the building.

PWInsider says the audience member was “trying to get to Grayson Waller after being the subject of Waller’s mic work”. Waller’s Instagram Story currently has a clip of him roasting the fan, saying he “has his hat on backwards but thinks it’s forwards” and telling him to “do something” as he’s “like 14 pounds”.

These kinds of incidents have led to some scary scenes in the past, so good work by security to quickly and safely handle this instance of bad fan behavior.

And since everyone is okay, it also feels safe to wonder if this doesn’t make Waller one of WWE’s top heels. People may love to boo Dominik Mysterio and chant expletives at Roman Reigns, but the Aussie has them turning works into shoots.
