Grayson Waller Explains How Just Looking at an Infamous Muhammad Ali Photo Inspires Him to Be “Better” Than Everyone

Inspirations can come from anywhere, and it knows no boundaries. Famous personalities play a big role in inspiring and influencing others. Muhammad Ali is one such big name that has probably inspired a number of athletes. WWE’s Grayson Waller is among many of those who have been inspired by the legendary boxer. A lot of fans did not know about this detail until recently when the wrestler admitted it publicly.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani, the WWE wrestler discussed the impact that the legendary boxer has had on his life. Not only was Ali slightly related to the wrestler’s wrestling career, but ended up giving his character a new perspective. And all of this happened just through one infamous picture of the boxing legend.

How did one picture affect Grayson Waller so deeply?

Appearing as a guest on The MMA Hour’s recent interview coverage, Waller talked about several things. In the midst of an interesting conversation, Helwani couldn’t help but ask the wrestler about the big poster on the wall behind him. The poster was a picture of none other than Muhammad Ali victoriously standing atop Sonny Liston.

Despite the infamous ‘phantom punch’ of the 1965 bout, it is one of Ali’s most iconic pictures. Using this visual, Fit Finlay, who acted as a mentor to Waller, taught him a valuable lesson.
