Corey Graves Takes Major Shots At CM Punk After UFC 225 Loss

After CM Punk lost his fight at UFC 225 PPV last night, WWE commentator took some major shots at Punk on Twitter. You can read the tweets below:

Graves then responded to some fan comments and explained why he took shots at Punk. You can check them out below:

Graves was interviewed by Fightful after this and Graves explained his side of the story in the interview. Below is the story as told by Graves:

“Well, to be honest, I’d never heard or been given that ultimatum. It kinda shocked me when I texted him about grabbing dinner because we were in Chicago and he told me he no longer had any interest in being friends with me or anybody related to WWE.

I respected his drive, and him doing his own thing. He sent me the text shortly before his first fight. Part of me just thought he was in a zone and I didn’t take offense. I texted him the day of his FIRST fight something along the lines of “I know life is nuts, I still love you good luck” Probably not verbatim, but you get the idea.

What really set me off was this week when he essentially disowned the business that made him. My only issue with him was that he turned off people that actually loved and supported him. Beyond “the business” and he never wanted anything to do with us…yet continued to present himself as this “Punk” hero.

Dude, this has ZERO to do with court, or testimony or any of the above. Nothing that I tweeted was corporate. I’m simply hurt/pi$$ed off that a guy that I looked like as a big brother-type has turned his back on me and everyone that loved and supported him only because of the name on my paycheck. I’m definitely not the only one. I won’t name names, but there is a large group of us to this day that inexplicably lost a solid friend because of where we work.”
