• Edge’s Return Has Inspired A Retired Wrestler To Return
WWE commentator Corey Graves used to wrestle on NXT, but was forced to retire in 2014 due to concussion issues.
During a recent edition on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, Graves told Edge that the recent WWE 24 documentary on the Rated R Superstar’s return has inspired him to make a return as well (if possible).
Below is what Graves said:
“Watching it, honestly, man, it was inspiring. I would say at two or three different points I went, ‘Man, I live in Pittsburgh now. I should go find Dr. Maroon.’
It just gave me that urge to do this all over again, and I don’t know whether or not that’s a possibility, but the thought was planted in my brain for quite some time.”
