After making a surprise appearance at Money In The Bank in London, John Cena hyped up the crowd in the O2 Arena with the idea of London being the destination for WrestleMania.
Cena would be cut off abruptly by Grayson Waller, who shot down the idea of WrestleMania in London and instead suggested that Australia would be the ideal destination. After failing to convince the 16x World Champion to appear on his talk show, The Grayson Waller Effect, at the aforementioned event, Waller laid Cena out in the ring.
Appearing on WWE’s The Bump, Waller stood by his actions.
I was nothing but a good guy. I go out there, and I just want to meet John Cena. He’s a legend of the game. I want to go out there and say hello, and what a treat for him, being back and he gets to be in the ring with Grayson Waller, the hottest thing in WWE right now.Grayson Waller, WWE’s The Bump 13/7/23
Waller then doubles down on his opinion that WrestleMania should appear in Australia instead of London, England.
Then he wants WrestleMania in London, no one wants WrestleMania in London. London is terrible. I don’t know why anyone would want to have the show there. So I come out and I give a better idea, we have WrestleMania in Australia.Grayson Waller, WWE’s The Bump 13/7/23
I know I’ll be seeing John Cena again one day. I would 100% have him on The Grayson Waller Effect. You know I never let my personal rivalries get in the way of having a good show. I think it’s something he needs. I know he’s got the ‘Peacemaker’ season seven or whatever he’s doing, but when it comes to WWE, what has he done lately besides lose? So I think he kind of needs someone like Grayson Waller to bring him back and give him maybe some of his mojo back.Grayson Waller, WWE’s The Bump 13/7/23
