Jeff Hardy Says The Future Is Bright For Cameron Grimes

256

NXT is full of talented Superstars and that includes Cameron Grimes (real name Trevor Lee). It seems he has a fan in Jeff Hardy, who certainly sees a lot in him.

Hardy spoke to Sports Illustrated, where he said that Grimes has a bright future ahead of him. He talked about having a close friendship with Grimes’ father, Tracy Caddell, who was the co-founder of IMEGA Championship Wrestling back in 1997. This is where Jeff and his brother Matt began their professional wrestling careers.

“Trevor is incredible. He’s just so talented. Many, many moons ago, even before I debuted in WWE against Razor Ramon in ’94, I was training in Trevor’s dad’s old yard. That’s where our ring used to be. I can still remember doing shooting stars and landing on my feet, doing reverse-450s and landing on my feet.”

Hardy said he saw Grimes as a kid and is now impressed with how he has performed in NXT. He then praised Grimes by saying the following:

“I remember when Trevor was a little baby, he was in that ring. I’ve seen him grow up, and to see him so big and healthy and athletic, it’s a beautiful thing. His dad passed away at the age of 50, but I’m sure he’s living vicariously through his son. It’s such a cool thing to see another human being come from this little antique town called Cameron, N.C., and be on this main stage. He is such a talented and deserving individual, and I wish him the best of luck.”
