Grayson Waller has been feuding with WWE legends lately. The 33-year-old first tried to humiliate John Cena at Money in the Bank but, his attempts backfired, as he ended up receiving an Attitude Adjustment from the WWE legend. He then made his in-ring debut on SmackDown at Madison Square Garden against Edge.

Although Grayson surprised the fans with his performance, he could not defeat the WWE Hall of Famer. And now, Grayson Waller has taken aim at Dwayne Johnson. Johnson’s response put Waller in his place after he insulted Johnson’s debut outfit from 1996. But Waller has clapped back with yet another response.

The Australian wrestler first took to Twitter to post a video recalling how “cringe” The Rock’s debut outfit was. He went on to insinuate that his debut at Madison Square Garden was more significant. In case you forgot, The Rock made his debut at the 1996 Survivor Series in Madison Square Garden. If there’s one thing that is unmistakably etched in every wrestling fan’s memory about his first appearance, it’s his in-ring attire.

Johnson wore an outfit with satin blue tribal ribbons around it. As noted, Waller labeled The Rock’s debut “cringe”. In response, Johnson stated that Waller sounds like he “dropped out of some jabroni’s balloon knot.” In addition, The Great One also revealed that the outfit was Triple H’s idea, calling Waller an “Outback Jack Off.”

He wrote, “Here’s what’s more cringe – the fact you look and sound like you dropped out of some jabroni’s balloon knot. Nice haircut, you Outback Jack Off. Ps, my cringe debut outfit was all @TripleH’s idea”

Waller has now fired back at The WWE legend, inviting him to the Grayson Waller Effect show. He also alluded to a potential match, stating that The Rock is in need of the Grayson Waller rub. He wrote, “Ouch! Those classic 1999 schoolyard insults really still hit. You still have an open invitation to be a guest on The Grayson Waller Effect though! Sounds like you’re in desperate need of the Grayson Waller rub.

Nevertheless, we will have to wait and see if Dwayne Johnson bothers to respond to Waller again. The WWE legend-turned-Hollywood icon is currently busy with his business ventures and Hollywood schedule. 

He was, however, rumored to make his return at WrestleMania 39 earlier this year

When did The Rock wrestle his last match?

The Brahma Bull hasn’t appeared on WWE in ages. 2019 marked the last appearance of The Rock on WWE TV. The multi-time WWE Champion made his presence felt on the 20th anniversary of SmackDown. He worked in tandem with Becky Lynch and laid the SmackDown on Baron Corbin. 

Although The Rock’s last match took place at WrestleMania 32 against Erick Rowan, it only lasted around six seconds. But his last legitimate match took place at WrestleMania 29 against John Cena, which saw the latter emerge victorious.
