• Rumor Killer On WWE Commentator Having Backstage Heat For Recent Comments
According to the Wrestling Observer, there’s heat on WWE commentator Corey Graves for some comments he made about the Greatest Royal Rumble event & Saudi Arabia.
Below is what he posted on Instagram:
“A drink to remember that no matter how bad WE think we have it, at least our women have rights and we all have freedom of expression.”
According to the Wrestling Observer, many people within the company felt that Graves should’ve made these comments privately. It was also noted that people said Corey is “more replaceable than he thinks he is.”
However, according to WrestleVotes, there doesn’t seem to be any heat on Graves:
Asked about the Corey Graves heat report being floated out by Meltzer, more specifically the part about him being “replaceable”. Source said it’s laughable. Graves is a big part of WWE TV, and is well liked by almost everyone.
