The final pick in the Draft saw Cameron Grimes selected by SmackDown. This comes after months of rumors of Grimes being called up to the main roster. According to WRKD Wrestling on Twitter, Triple H has long since advocated for Grimes to be called up. Grimes’ physical transformation and microphone skills are said to have gained him support and a likely push on SmackDown. His first match is scheduled for next week against Baron Corbin.
While drafted last, we've heard HHH has high hopes for @CGrimesWWE, having long advocated for him to be called up.

Grimes was a star in NXT. Check out some of his work there:
Opinion: Grimes is someone I’ve wanted to see on the main roster for a long time as he has all of the tools needed to become something on one of the bigger shows. It is nice to see him getting this chance after so long as he has certainly put the work in to make it a possibility. Success might take some time, but at least he is getting a chance after waiting so long to get here.
What do you think of Grimes? How will he do on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
