Wallyson began his career at ABC, and quickly became the idol of his home crowd when, being only 19 years old, scored four goals in the Campeonato Potiguar final of 2007, against the team's biggest rival in Brazilian football, América, winning by 5–2. ABC won its 49th state league championship in its history and the player himself finished the tournament as top scorer that season. Wallyson was also a major contributor to ABC's promotion to Serie B (Brazil's national second division) making the tie-breaking goal in the last match of ABC in the competition against Bragantino, which ensured the team promotion. He was considered one of the main highlights of the Serie C. Due to his success, he was linked to Atlético Paranaense.
In 2008, he was traded to Atletico Paranaense. In this year, Wallyson made his debut in Serie A, however, he suffered with several injuries and failed to have a major impact in his first season with his new club. But in 2009, he won the Campeonato Paranaense, being elected the breakthrough player of this competition.
On July 29, 2010 the player was presented to Cruzeiro. He was signed from a proxy club Deportivo Maldonado on loan until 2013. Cruzeiro would received 30% transfer fee if Wallyson was successfully sold. The team debut took place on August 22, in a loss to Vitória in a game for the Serie A. On 15 September he scored his first goal for the team in a victory over the Guarani, for 4–2. He played mostly as a substitute in his first year at Cruzeiro. In 2011, Wallyson was promoted to the first team, and finished as Cruzeiro's top scorer at Copa Santander Libertadores, with 7 goals. He scored two goals in the two final matches of the Campeonato Mineiro against biggest rivals Atlético Mineiro, which was his third State League title in career.
On January 11, 2013, São Paulo confirmed Wallyson had signed and was to join the squad. The player signed contract until December. In May 2013, however, after the elimination of Tricolor in State League and Libertadores Cup, the player was released, by president Juvenal Juvêncio and coach Ney Franco.
