Tonight’s “TakeOver Vengeance” card was full of great matches, but NXT fans couldn’t help but talk about one of the segments between those matches for the title. It’s easy to see why, since that segment was actually an entire music video for Cameron Grimes, who revealed last week that he became a millionaire thanks to GameStop’s increased stock. He showed up with a nice car, a nice watch and more money in his pockets than he knew what to do with, and on TakeOver he showed it all off in a hilarious music video that you only have to see to believe.
With a catchy song at the stem and Grimes riffs with “To the Moon” the whole time, he showed off the white sports car he bought, the jewelry and all the money he just put around the pool, even though he didn’t buy any clothes because you know he’s shirtless half the time.

Many people love the Millionaire Hilbilly gimmick that made its debut on Grimes last week, and the music video sums it up well.

Some people can’t help but compare Grimes to Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar’s beloved song, and you know they’re not wrong.
Cameron Grimes feels like the Red Dead Redeemer #NXTTakeOver character.

Wrong at best.
Some people thought they wouldn’t like it, but once you see it, you can’t help it.
I saw a lot of praise for that Cameron Grimes story and I didn’t think it was for me. Now I see that I was wrong. Delightfully absurd.
