Wallyson began his career at ABC, and quickly became the idol of his home crowd when, with only 19 years old, scored four goals in the Campeonato Potiguar final of 2007, against its biggest rival, América, winning by 5–2. ABC won his 49th state league in history and the player finished the tournament as top scorer.

He was considered one of the main highlights of the Serie C. Due to his success, he was linked to Atlético Paranaense.
